It’s a dose of the “white stuff” for Whistler Blackcomb.
On Wednesday, snow started falling at the top of Whistler Peak.
Global Meteorologist Mark Madryga:
“That just shows how cool the air mass is. It’s at about 1500 metres and above.”
PR Coordinator Sarah Morden says it’s a good sign for those who enjoy the mountain during the winter season.
“We’re very excited. You know, we had a very busy summer in the mountain bike park, and so we’re looking forward to translating that into the winter season.”
Morden says the forecast this winter is expected to be good for those who ski and snowboard.
“If you look at the Farmers’ Almanac, it’s looking pretty positive for us, even though we had some challenging conditions at the lower elevations last year, our alpine was fantastic throughout most of the season.”
Morden says there isn’t enough snow to warrant any safety concerns or add any kind of ‘caution signs’ where the snow has stuck.
