DREAMS OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS COME TRUE AT WHISTLER BLACKCOMB WITH 66CM OF FRESH SNOW

Wednesday, December 26th, 2012

Whistler, BC, December 20, 2012 – Just five days until Christmas and already Whistler Blackcomb has received its favorite present piled under the tress; fresh powder. The festive spirit is alive in the alpine with 48cm of new snow that blanketed the slopes in the last 24 hours and 116cm in the last seven days.

With a total accumulation of 499cm so far this season, and a 211cm base, Whistler Blackcomb will be 100% open as of Saturday December 22 with more skiable terrain, than any other ski resort in North America.

Santa’s elves have piled 282cm of snow onto Whistler Blackcomb’s slopes so far in December and there is more on the way, making for the whitest snow globe scene on the continent. Forecasters are calling for an additional 10cm to 15cm by Christmas Eve and potential for another 10cm on Christmas Day.

Whistler Blackcomb tallies 134cm (4.4 feet) of snow in the first four days of December

WHISTLER, BC, December 4, 2012 – Whistler Blackcomb has been open to the public for just over two weeks but already the slopes have received 337 cm of snow (11.1 feet), and there is up to 33 cm (1.1 feet) forecasted over the next four days.

“The mountain is on track for another record setting year with a snow base of 185 cm (6.1 feet), that’s the highest snow base for this time of year compared to the last ten years. It’s also 50 cm (1.6 feet) more snow than what our base was last year at this time,” says Stuart Rempel, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Whistler Blackcomb. “This really drives home our point that Whistler Blackcomb offers some of the most consistent and reliable snow to our guests compared to any other resort in North America.”

On Saturday, Whistler Blackcomb is expecting to open Blackcomb Mountain’s alpine for the first time this season, weather permitting. This will make 5,280 vertical feet and over 6,000 acres of skiable terrain accessible to guests.
