The countdown to official opening day for Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains on November 24th is on! The mountains have already received lots of snow.  This early snow fall is in part due to La Nina.  La Nina is when the ocean surface temperature across the Pacific Ocean will be lower than normal by 3-5 °C.  The effect of La Nina is an increase in precipitation – and more snow!

The snow base at Pig Alley (1,650 meters on Whistler Mountain) on November 4th was at 52 cm (20 in) and is growing fast. The snow keeps falling!  Check out the latest conditions on the mountain with the live webcams.  Stay in touch as the mountains may open earlier for skiing with all the new snow that has fallen.
