We’ve heard rumbles, over the last week, of a huge of a storm approaching the south west coast of British Columbia. And like the impatient powder hunters that we are, we’ve been hitting refresh on snow-forecast.com every 30 mins for the past 7 days.

In that time, we’ve watched as the Whistler snow forecast grew from 96 cm, to 140 cm, and now to a mega 211 cm. All set to fall between Wednesday December 2nd and Monday December 7th, 2015.

That’s all of Whistler Blackcomb’s average snowfall for December, in the first week of the month!

Whistler Weather

Whistler is a goldilocks town. A town just close enough to the sea to get higher than average precipitation and just high enough in altitude that the precipitation turns to snow. Did you know, this whole region of BC is a temperate rainforest? One of the most endangered in the world, in fact.

This magical combination of Pacific weather systems combined with mountain geography makes for spectacular – but notoriously hard to predict – winter weather patterns.

The best way to stay on top of Whistler’s weather forecast is through:

1. the Whistler Blackcomb app – live temps, web cams, and snow reports
3. snow-forecast.com – snowfall forecasting and temperature predictions

Have fun this week!
