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