With 65cm of fresh snow this week, Whistler Blackcomb (WB) has now received a total of 1,188cm this season and has officially surpassed its 10-year annual average snowfall of 1,170cm. WB received 320cm of snowfall in March alone, making March 2017 the third snowiest March on record for the resort.
“We are once again lucky enough to boast one of the longest ski seasons in North America,” says Doug Macfarlane, director of mountain operations at WB. “We have received consistent consecutive storm cycles combined with low temperatures throughout the winter, priming the mountains to deliver excellent spring conditions.”
Whistler Mountain’s last day of winter operations is April 23, but Blackcomb Mountain will remain open for skiing and riding until May 22.
