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 08-Dec-2013)
Temperatures have plummeted in western Canada this week and there are still excellent snow conditions on and off piste at our featured resorts.
Kimberly (104cm/104cm) is set to open for a bonus weekend on Saturday 7th December and prepared with a dump of 55cm on Monday 2nd December. There was a further dusting of 3cm on Wednesday and the cold snap should keep the snow in prime condition for the first turns of the season.
There are also excellent conditions in Banff (58cm/77cm) which has received light top-ups all week. A light dusting improved the pistes on Wednesday 4th December but temperatures dropped as low as -30C.
On the east coast Tremblant (60cm/60cm) is providing fantastic early-season conditions thanks to 10cm of fresh snow on Tuesday 3rd December. The best skiing can be found on the upper slopes however due to much milder temperatures around 5C.
North American Weather Outlook
The USA has enjoyed heavy snowfall this week but over the next seven days it is Canada’s turn to look forward to powder skiing. Whistler and Revelstoke should receive around 50cm towards the end of next week. The snow conditions will be helped by temperatures remaining at below -10C for much of next week.
In the USA most resorts will continue to receive consistent snowfall, although in smaller amounts than their northern neighbours. Temperatures are also expected to increase slightly and most resorts will enjoy their fresh snow in sunny weather towards the end of next week.
