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 12-Dec-2013)
There has been consistent snowfall in Canada this week with resorts on the east coast boasting the best conditions.
Mont Sainte-Anne (60/80cm) enjoyed 23cm of fresh powder on Tuesday 10th December and a further 3cm the following day. Tremblant (70/85cm) also offered great conditions this week when 18cm fell on Tuesday, with a top up of 5cm on Wednesday 11th December.
On the west coast Kimberly (105/105cm) and Kicking Horse (77/77cm) are both preparing to open for the season on Saturday 14th December. The latter has received regular dustings of snow throughout the week.
Very good conditions are also on offer at other west coast resorts including Whistler (79/79cm) and Revelstoke (105/105cm) which are both expecting further moderate snowfall in the coming days. In Banff (70/78cm) there are excellent conditions at all three local resorts after light snowfall throughout the week continued to improve the pistes.
North American Weather Outlook
It is set to be a much sunnier week in America over the next seven days although most resorts will also receive occasional top ups of fresh snow after the weekend. The east coast is set to receive the majority of the fresh stuff with Mount Snow, Sugarbush and Killington all expecting over 15cm.
In Canada, Kicking Horse should celebrate opening week with around 35cm of new snow but they are not the only resort expecting good snowfall. Almost all of our featured resorts are preparing for moderate snowfall throughout the next seven days. Whistler and Banff could both accumulate a further 25cm each.
