Whistler Blackcomb saw a very welcome dusting of the white fluffy stuff this past weekend. The first signs of winter hit the peak late last week and by Sunday, those who made it up to the 2,182 metre mark were greeted by a winter wonderland.
There is always a way to ski Whistler Blackcomb, but consistency of snow is what this mountain is known for and it would appear the 2018-19 season is off to a good start. The 10-year average annual snowfall is 1056cm, and we closed out last season with 1239cm, some 4.91% above the 10 year average.
Which Month Is Whistler Blackcomb, B.C.’s Snowiest Ever Month?
You never know which will be the snowiest month of the season, so it’s worth rounding up the gear to start getting ready. Our biggest single month on record was November 2009, with 500 cm of goodness, and last January we recorded our third snowiest month of the last 10 years, with 379cm.
Saturday marks Fall Equinox, and as Whistler Blackcomb’s Opening Day is November 22, that means we’re already into opening season!
Happy countdown everyone!
