MEESH'S WHISTLER REPORT : Winter has arrived !!!!!

Posted: 28. March 2005

Whistler, BC – After 3 months of waiting, Winter has finally decided to make an appearance in Whistler. After a very sunny and warm February and March, the Easter bunny had brought us what we wanted most….SNOW !!!!!! and lots of it.

After a grand total of 85 cm last weekend, another 30ish cm fell Friday night and Saturday with more expected. The skiing was amazing on Saturday morning, by far the best skiing this year. With fresh knee deep light powder, it was easy to see why every one was smiling.

Tree runs are opening up and more terrain is becoming available everyday. The ski-out from Whistler is still closed and with rain in the village, is doubtful to open. However, Whistler Bowl and the Blackcomb Glacier are in the finest shape this year.

Things are looking good for the next couple weeks with the freezing level expected to stay low and they are calling for more snow on Wednesday and Friday.

The bikes will have to wait a little longer, as the skiing right now is the best of the season. Ski Esprit is offering 2 for 1 deals in April, so come on out. This year the Telus World Ski & Snowboard Festival is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary. So join the party this April 8 -17. See you on the slopes.
