Whistler Blackcomb Skiing 5

It's time folks! Whistler Blackcomb is opening for the season tomorrow! November 23, one day before anticipated, the head start has been made possible by recent colder temperatures and natural snowfall at lower elevations over the past week.

Blackcomb Mountain will open as scheduled on Thursday, November 24.

The T-Bars will also be in operation if weather permits. There will be a mandatory download in effect from the top of both gondolas. Approximately 14 runs will be open and groomed for guests to enjoy.

For a live lift status throughout the day, guests are encouraged to check the on mountain lift status boards or the Whistler Blackcomb website.

It is currently snowing heavily on the mountain with more snow forecasted for the rest of the week heading into the weekend. The current base is sitting at 101cm as measured at the Pig Alley weather station on Whistler Mountain and we can hardly sit still!

The winter ski season is finally here! - Between the steadily dropping snowline, and the eager new faces wandering around town with their new skis, boards and boots there's a noticeable feeling of excitement in Whistler this week.

Whistler Alternative

When visiting Whistler, consider staying at Pemberton Valley Lodge. We offer several advantages over Whistler hotels…

 1  Only 20 minutes

You can get to the Village faster from our Lodge than you can from some parts of Whistler Resort.

 2  Save money

Whistler hotels typically charge for parking. We don't. And you get bigger rooms for your dollar.

 3  Ski shuttle

Our complimentary shuttle bus runs on weekends from the Lodge to and from Whistler Blackcomb.
