2. Re: Snow conditions?? How is it right now. Thanks.

i was up on the 21st of december...conditons were hardpack, machine groom, icy with no new snow. with all this warm weather and precip, i expect most of the mountian to be covered in fog and pissing rain. best bet is to check the weather cams, NOT the snow report. WB sometimes likes to claim it's "all good" when in fact it isn't....

I received an email today (albeit from the Whistler tourism people) that reported 141 cm of fresh snow in the last 7 days. Its been warm and wet on the coast, affecting the Vancouver mountains, but I believe Whistler is just inland and high enough to still be in the snow zone.

Guys/glas, don't get me wrong, i know whistler has snow. i have always questioned the amount and where and how they measure. They reported 70 cm (over 2 ft) in 24hrs period, but a friend who was up on thurs-fri said more like 30cm, plus the top (where all the pow is) was closed due to high winds. Apparently the bottom 1/3rd is spring like conditions.

Re: the amount of snow - You answered your own question, your friend only got to ski the bottom of the mountain since the alpine was closed. The upper lifts opened on Saturday and it was super-deep.
