Whistler Blackcomb Receives First Significant Snowfall of 2013
Whistler Blackcomb received their first significant snowfall since Christmas as the mountain has received 54 cm of fresh snow in the past 7 days. The current forecast predicts that another 30 cm of snow will fall in Whistler between now and Thursday, followed by another major snowfall from the Pineapple Express system on Friday and Saturday with up to 50-60 cm of snow predicted. While Whistler Blackcomb is always in great shape, January and early February generally bring a slow period in new snow based on historical figures that often create icy compact conditions. In fact, in January 2013 Whistler Blackcomb only saw 117 cm of fresh snow, the second lowest January total since 2002.
Whistler Blackcomb Greeted With The Luck Of The Irish
It may be the last week in February, but the luck of the Irish may be blessing the mountains at Whistler Blackcomb this March. While not as much snow falls over ‘Spring Break’ as it does closer to Christmas, Whistler Blackcomb has recently been receiving between 300-400 cm of fresh snow the past two seasons during the month of March. This unexpected and recent trend has spawned off a longer ski season for many in Whistler as last year’s season didn’t end until the end of May.
With the World Ski and Snowboard Festival around the corner in April, the sight of large snowfalls is a significant boost for the ski resort looking to attract large crowds to its largest annual ski and snowboard festival, April 12-21st, 2013. It may have taken a little while, but Whistler Blackcomb’s first significant snowfall of 2013 is a pleasant sight to many and will be sure to attract skiers or boarders looking for a little fun on Spring Break.
