Whistler Mountain Is Ready to Open Soon

Rain, Rain, Rain! October was a pretty wet month for Pemberton with the rain coming down nearly everyday of the month. But here comes November! It's only weeks before Whistler Blackcomb opening day and the mountain has been getting tons of snow up top! The snow line is creeping down and the peak already has 73 cm of snow!
Don't believe it? Check out the Whistler Blackhomb Webcams to see the action live (well, 15 minute intervals live but still pretty exciting to see!)
But until the temperature drops below freezing and the snow reaches the village, it's gonna be wet!
While the wet weather may make you want to stay at home, throw some logs on the fire and binge watch your favourite tv series. There are a bunch of fun things to do in any weather conditions including ATV and side-by-side adventures, Scandinave Spa, Whistler Bounce Acrobatic Academy, Pemberton Public Library, exploring the forest, and mushroom picking! So many things to do and so little time before ski season!
This time of year can be torture for anybody waiting for the mountain to open - the shorter days, the colder temperatures, the 73 cm on the peak! The official opening day on Whistler Mountain is scheduled to open on November 24 but with these good conditions it bound to open up earlier! (UPDATE: Whistler Mountain has just announced it's opening date for the 2017 season as Wednesday, November 23rd!)
