The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 5 – Unofficial Official Opening Day

The 16 days of Opening Day (almost better than Christmas): Day 5 - Unofficial Official Opening Day

On the 5th day of Opening day, my truelove gave to me….an early opening!

As Whistler and Whistlerites gear upfor the start of another amazing season, in the 16 days leading upto Opening Day, I’m going to give you 16 different ideas of someawesome things to do this winter season!

We’re less than a week away to the “Official” Opening Day.However, the unofficial “Official” Opening Day is TODAY (SaturdayNov. 17th). The Whistler Alpine will be open, and you can bet yourbottom dollar you will see nothing but smiles all day. In factsmiles all day, every day for the next 6-7 months.

Blackcomb Mountain is still scheduled to open November 22nd.

Back to the List we go!


First tracks of the season have been laid out as of 8.30 thismorning on what will surely become another epic year!

It’s been raining in the village sincelast night, yet there have been a few die-hards camping out sinceyesterday afternoon (see picture below) to ensure they’re first inline, and get the first lines on the snow this season. Impressivefeat considering how soggy they must have gotten over night.

On the upside, the forecast is calling for a wholllllleeeee lot ofsnow over the next 5-6 days. Upwards of 160+ cm’s in the Alpine(for you folks not wanting to do math on a Saturday, that’s nearly5.5 feet of white gold). Jealous yet?

Needless to say, the season is starting off well!
