Whistler is mid way through that three metre plus snow storm and things are looking more than good.
The resort has reportedly received 65 centimetres in the last 24 hours alone and 130 centimetres in the past seven days. But the best news is they still have another 279 centimeters to go over the next ten days.
Green yet? We are. But who can deny these folk lucky enough to be in Whistler this week, their powder grins? Not us.
Let’s just say locals are seriously feeling the love. Especially long time local, Mike Douglas.
This is like the predictive text of Instagram posts. With 50cm of new snow overnight and a forecast for it to keep on puking, I’m guessing the next bunch of posts you’ll see coming out of Whistler Blackcomb will look something like this….#timetoplay

He’s far from the only one scooping up fresh powder from first lifts to last lifts. TJ Kern and his crew at Board Archive posted this as their last run of the day. Last run! What the actual?
But wait, there’s more

Meanwhile Snow-forecast.com are calling for up to 266 centimetres at 2284 metres elevation.
But before we go, check out this one last pic from the last 24 hours. Sigh.
