Epic Easter skiing coming to Whistler

As the Western part of the world continues to get hammered with fluffy white stuff, Whistler Blackcomb is no exception. The ski town has been dumped on in the last two days to the tune of 23 inches.

Easter skiing in Whistler is the perfect remedy for anyone feeling the post-Olympics blues. We know we are. Plus, the storm comes just a couple weeks before the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival, running from April 16th-25th.

After opening early for the season and breaking records in November, this season has become Whistler Blackcomb’s third snowiest winter on record with over 44 feet. The second snowiest season is only slightly higher with 46.5 feet of snow.
“We’re also looking at a great base for spring skiing, which will continue through to May 24,” says Doug MacFarlane, Whistler Blackcomb Mountain Manager.

Nearly 100 percent of Whistler Blackcomb terrain is open— including the men’s Olympic course, the Dave Murray Downhill.
