This March in Whistler has been snowy, to say the least. The snowiest March on record in fact as over 342 cm (135 in.) of snow has fallen in the past month alone and is still coming down as we speak. Now, Whistler Blackcomb has announced that they will keep Blackcomb mt open for skiing until May 28. To connect the dots here: people love skiing, skiing requires snow, Whistler has lots of snow; ergo Blackcomb will remain open for people to enjoy skiing for longer. Sounds like a win-win to me, and that’s just how Whister’s management seemed to come to the same conclusion. According to Doug MacFarlane, Whistler Blackcomb mountain operations manager, the past weeks have offered,
“some of the best spring conditions we’ve ever had. [Therefore] Extending the ski season on Blackcomb and giving the people what they want was an easy decision.”
And as a result,
“60 days of skiing and riding still remain in the season at Whistler Blackcomb, offering one of the longest seasons in North America.” – First Tracks!! Online Ski Magazine
So ice up those legs, re-stock on Advil, and put your damn bike away because there is plenty more skiing to come this year!
