    Whistler's Getting Spanked!!

    yeah baby, that's the shit right there. Crank that firehose up!

    Whistler - Blackcomb.

    Today..Snow heavy at times.
    Snowfall accumulation 15 to 20 cm.
    Alpine temperature steady near zero.

    Tonight..Periods of snow. Snow at times heavy this evening.
    Snowfall accumulation 15 to 20 cm.

    Friday..Periods of snow.
    Snowfall accumulation 10 to 15 cm.

    5 Day Trend..The storm track will remain situated over the South Coast for several more days. The next Pacific system will arrive on Saturday followed by a more intense system on Monday.

    Saturday.. Snow. Snowfall accumulation 15 cm.

    Sunday.. Mainly cloudy with chance of flurries.

    Monday..Snow. Snowfall accumulation 30 cm.

    Keep it coming! Snow levels are supposed to fall to below pass levels in WA this weekend, too. Let the base building begin.

    let's hope that in the battle of forecast vs reality, reality wins or that it's at least a draw!

    Definitely, but that's not likely to happen again, knock on wood.
    You have to expect, having seen this year upon year, that temps will go up and all of this snow will get slushed on, but either way it's great for base building. Mountain should open early as usual.
    Stoked!

    No shit.

    In two days, that POS W/B snowpack chewed up an otherwise fine pair of bases...then cost me an ACL...punched through to bushes, hung a ski, and that was that. Happy New Year.

    Rain down in the valley and so warm I'm tempted to go running without a jacket.

    Sure hope the freezing level stops playing fucking yo-yo.

    Maybe the Olympicon Committee Defence Force will fire canons into the sky like they did in Beijing to make it cold.

    So where's your vote to access early turns?
    -Drive up service roads beyond Kadenwood for Peak to Creek access?
    -Black Tusk would be sweet as the terrain is smooth but that new gate is a lot burlier and pretty much locked now.
    -Brandywine is high access, but that creek in the meadow probably won't be frozen.
    -Brew Mountain ski trail probably won't have enough snow lower, although I hear it dumps 50% more than Whistler.
    -Tricouni area (Chance creek side) might be a good bet, smooth meadows, high access

    Any other ideas?

    I am considering hiking Black Tusk for some turns next week. Was up there on October 3rd and could have used my skis then. Don't really want to hike up in the rain, so I am hoping for a clearing of some sort. 4-5 hours up is worth it I think.

    Tricouni is pretty rocky. Even Black Tusk is rocky.

    Elfin is the go-to because of the heather covered meadows

    Some of the runs on Blackcomb near Catskinner have been de-stumped so that's always a possibility

    Thinking about going up the Duffey with the ol snow machine next week. Could this be another 06/07 start to the season?

    I'm glad Whistler getting spanked because it's coming down .4"/hour of rain at Baker right now.

    I keep watching for the FL to start dropping....because with this weather I think Heliotrope is a non starter.

    This isn't fair. I'm tryin to get myself geared up for the season and all I keep reading is people getting hit with tons of snow. It hasn't even dropped below 32 where I am. Sorry for bitching, just jealous.

    It's raining to Roundhouse at least. We keep losing snow from rain. It's an El Nino year.

    The forecast looks very good from what I can see. Heavy snow forecast well into next week. I'm no longer in Whistler unfortunately so you all have me to thank...

    For this time of year, "yuk" is good. Cold rain and snow is much better than blower pow for a base. Oozes into all those nooks and crannies for a real solid base.
