WITH RECORD 9.9 M (32 FT) OF SNOWFALL, WHISTLER BLACKCOMB IS GAMES-READY AND SET TO WELCOME THE WORLD

As the finishing touches are being applied to the Olympic venues, Whistler Blackcomb is celebrating a record 9.9 metres or 32.5 feet of snowfall to date this season. As the snow base hovers around the 3-metre or 10-feet mark, the resort is Games-ready and set to welcome the world in just two weeks. 

Deep snow at Whistler Blackcomb is nothing new, but getting so close to the average annual snowfall of 10.13 metres or 33 feet so early in the season is very unique. In fact, this is the first time that Whistler Blackcomb has received this amount of snow by the end of January, dating back to when snow reporting began in 1979/80. „Now, the resort is looking its best and the snow conditions on the mountains are incredible. We received great feedback from course inspectors last week, and the men's and women's courses are now fully in the hands of Olympic Organizing Committee.“ Full information is available online at www.whistlerblackcomb.com/Olympics.
