Rejoice! Whistler opening on Saturday

And you thought it was just a big tease when Whistler said “an early opening is always possible.”  Kevin Garnett knows anything is possible, and word today is that Whistler is moving up their opening date by two weeks!

Saturday, November 14, Whistler Mountain will open an historical season for the B.C. mother of all ski resorts.  You know the Winter Olympics are coming to Whistler, but did you know that ski traffic is actually less for mountains hosting an Olympics?  Everyone has the same thought (it’s going to be crowded), and consequently (we’re talking actual hard numbers here), skier visits actually decrease during a Winter Olympic year for the host mountain.

Now that we’ve freed you from the binds of conventional wisdom, get fired up on what will surely be a gigantic year for Whistler/Blackcomb.  With three feet of newly delivered snow, Whistler is opening on Saturday.  All is right with the world.
