Conditions Report @ Whistler – January 8th

Visibility:  Low in the high alpine due to frozen mist.  Good between about 2,000 meters and  1,600 meters.  Low in the lower elevations due to mist on the goggles.

Surface Conditions:  4-6 inch wind blown powder in the alpine, slush in the low-pine (basically, from the top of the gondola up, it was powder).

 

Visibility between high and low fog today

Skiing Enjoyability:  Very high in the alpine granted you could stick it out and ski by brail a bit (although there were occasional sucker holes that were Glorious).  The low-pine was also damn fun as Dave Murrey was fast, knolly, and fun.  The A-line mountain bike run was smooth and smiley.

Best Chairs of the Day:  The Peak Chair and Harmony Chair.

“Precipitation will become heavier tonight as a cold front approaches from the northwest. Look for rain lower on the mountain with snow at mid and high elevations. Wind will be increasing throughout the night.

Snow turns to snow shoewrs on Monday. Snow levels will be dropping as cooler air moves into the area. Winds will top out in the morning hours and decrease on through the afternoon hours.

Light snow showers are expected Monday evening, with some clearing and drying later at night. Tuesday and Wednesday look to be clear and dry. Thursday will be dry as well, with some increase in higher clouds later in the day.” – WhistlerBlackcomb.com
