It’s Only A Month Away From Ski Season Starting in Whistler

The excitement for ski season in Pemberton and Whistler is palpable. With the snow beginning to creep lower and lower it's hard to contain all the anticipation we have for Whistler Blackcomb's opening day.

JUST IN Whistler Mountain will be opening one week EARLY! Opening day has been moved to Friday, November 17th. 

Celebrate Whistler Blackcomb's opening week with the Winter Kick-Off. For the second year in a row, The North Face and Whistler Blackcomb have partnered up to celebrate the return of the ski year with events, contests, and more.
