People in Whistler are relieved to finally be breathing clear and easy again under a sunny sky.
Courtney Foxgord with the Crystal Lodge says seeing the blue skies is a sight for sore eyes.
“The air quality is a lot better. We got a couple days of rain up here as well which really helped and I am imagining really helped out the forest fires as well.”
Many eyes in the vacation town have been sore for more than a week with smoke from the Elaho fire filling the air.
Poor air quality hit a peak level in the 30s about four times the worst we had in Metro Vancouver.
The Elaho fire remains uncontained at just over 12-thousand hectares.
It’s one of 20 fires of note in BC right now.
