Whistler’s December Snowfall Second Largest in Last 10 Years

Whistler Record Snowfall in December

Whistler’s weather gave the resort a present over the Christmas Holiday season, giving Whistler Blackckomb its second largest December snowfall on record over the past 10 years. If Whistler’s clear sunny weather for the last two days of December was any indication, then outdoor enthusiasts ended December enjoying some of the best snow conditions on record in Whistler. The early season snow accumulation at the number one ski resort in North America is above normal for this time of the year, having collected 560cm (18.4 feet) thus far.

Whistler Falls Just Short of December 2010 Snowfall Record

December’s monthly snowfall of 343cm is the second largest over the past 10 years, falling just short of the 363cm mark set in December of 2010. With a forecast of mostly sun and cloud with mixed flurries over the next four days, this winter’s ski season at Whistler Blackcomb only seems to be getting better.

With Whistler receiving record amounts of snowfall in December, on top of an already impressive early season snow base, the resort is in great shape for upcoming events and holidays such as the North Face Park and Pipe Open or B.C ‘s first Family Day holiday.
