Whistler Resort Info
With over 8100 acres of skiable terrain, Whistler-Blackcomb is the largest ski area in North America, served by one of the most advanced high speed lift systems. There is plenty of skiing for all abilities on both mountains. The peak of Whistler mountain is a particularly good playground for more advanced skiers with great off-piste, couloirs and powder bowls. Freestyle skiers and snowboarders are spoilt with two parks in Whistler and another 3 in Blackcomb (all at varying levels) along with a superpipe and boarder cross. The lift system is about as efficient as anywhere on the planet, but queues can build up in high season and at weekends. There is also great heli-skiing.
Whistler ski resort
Found only two hours from Vancouver, Whistler is a massively popular destination for Europeans, Japanese and Australians, who give it an international flavour. The centre of Whistler is pedestrianised, which along with excellent ski schools and child care makes Whistler a great family ski holiday destination. Accommodation, restaurants and après ski are also pretty damn good.

Snow Overview - Canada (snow news updated 09-Dec-2013)
Canadian resorts enjoyed rising temperatures over the weekend after a dramatic cold snap last week. There was also light snowfall at a selection of resorts.
Whistler (79cm/79cm) celebrated the opening of one of two brand new lifts for this season on Saturday 7th December. The Crystal Ridge Express began operations and despite no recent snowfall in the area excellent conditions can be found on-piste.
Marmot Basin (40cm/40cm) had a light dusting of snow overnight on Monday 9th December as did Revelstoke (92cm/92cm) and Sun Peaks (81cm/102cm). All three resorts experienced scattered snowfall throughout the day and temperatures around -10C made for excellent snow conditions across the ski areas.
On the east coast Blue Mountain (35cm/35c) is now open every day after another successful weekend. Conditions were improved on Sunday 8th December with 3cm of fresh snow.
North American Weather Outlook
It is shaping up to be a sunny week at most resorts in the USA this week. Alta and Breckenridge, along with most Colorado resorts, are expecting clear skies for the next nine days. Most of the snow will be falling on the east coast with Attitash, Smugglers’ Notch and Sugarbush expecting around 15cm this week.
Canada will be a lot snowier than its southern neighbor particularly in British Columbia. Kicking Horse should get around half a metre before its opening day this weekend and Whistler and Revelstoke are expecting similar amounts. Heavy snow will also return to Alberta with around 40cm predicted for Banff and Marmot Basin over the next seven days.
