Whistler - End of November

Hello,

Just wondering how's the weather in Whistler during the month of November? Planning on going skiing and doing some sightseeing.

Thanks for all you help!

Hmmm - skiing may or may not be on yet at the end of November. To be honest, November is probably the WORST time to go to Whistler, although if you are very lucky, the very end of November might be OK. This season I think it was the second week of Dec. before things got going.

I would expect cold and rain, with an outside chance of snow.

How about 3 seasons ago when we were skiing knee deep powder to the valley on opening day - Nov 5 or 6th .....

In general the opening weekend is American Thanksgiving weekend - around the 3rd weekend of Nov. Snow conditions can vary dramatically - from a lot to none.

It is normally cold enough to snow, just depends if we get the precipitation or not.

IMO November is hit and miss and can differ year to year. There's usually not enough snow on the ground for any other winter activity - ie snowmobiling, dog sledding etc. and too wet for biking, horseback riding.

Thanks for all your advice. Maybe we'll go in December instead... just to be sure :)
