“We are in the midst of another fantastic winter season here in Whistler so spring will have to wait just a little bit longer,” says Doug MacFarlane, Whistler Blackcomb mountain operations manager. “We’ve received over 342 cm (135 in.) of snowfall so far in March alone, making for some of the best spring conditions we’ve ever had. Extending the ski season on Blackcomb and giving the people what they want was an easy decision.”

When spring does arrive it will be celebrated in style in Whistler with gorgeous conditions, great deals and fun events.

 

Conditions

  • Current cumulative snowfall this season: 1184 cm (456 in.); 143 cm (56 in.) above Whistler Blackcomb’s annual snowfall average.
  • 342 cm (135 in.) of snowfall so far in March (as of the 3:30pm Snow Report on March 28, 2012) making this the snowiest March on record.
  • With a snow base of 346 cm (136 in), the spring skiing and riding will be awesome.

Snowboard Guide rating 10 out of 10 “Major riding for all styles and all levels, especially backcountry and amazing park and pipes.But take note: lift queues can be very long, especially at Easter and Christmas. Avoid major holidays if an option and Sundays are quieter than Saturdays, especially on Blackcomb. Great summer riding on Blackcomb Glacier.”
