We need to talk about Whistler’s mega snowfall and forecast

Whistler is experiencing some seriously good snow karma this season. The kind that burns your thighs, tests your fitness and has you heading into the Crystal cabin for waffles to refuel come mid morning before getting back out there till last lifts.

The numbers have been insane to begin and then mid storm and now a whole new cycle. The mountains have had close to two metres (197cms) in seven days and another metre to come over the next 10 days.

we need to talk about whistler’s mega snowfall and forecast

If you’ve booked yourself a Whistler Christmas then clearly you’ve been exceptional this year and are being well rewarded. 

The snowfall for the season to date, as of today, is 3.84 metres and the snow depth is over two metres depending where you dig your pit. 

We honestly do not know where to start with this pic from Paul Morrison Photography, it just makes us fall to our knees and weep.

This pic from Mike Douglas we’ve captioned “from where you’d rather be.”

The snow mobilers demonstrate just how deep the snow really is. 

So, there you have it, Whistler’s mega December. The snow just will not stop falling. We can’t help but fear it will stop, but if recent seasons are anything to go by, stopping is not in their vocabulary.
