Worse than last year which wasn't great!!! But better than the 3 local Vancouver mountains for sure. Although last year Whistler did get some nice big late season dumps that were pretty nice
- hope the same happens real soon. It rained at Whistler pretty well all of last week-end top to bottom - not good - bare spots everywhere - inside and outside the fences - so rock skis are a must for those who go up. If we get a cold snap which doesnt look like its going to happen anytime soon & no new snow it will be like skiing on a frozen pond.
To give a better picture of the situation, Whistler is still trying to sell discount Edge Cards to attract biz - normally they cut the purchase of those off in late November early December.
The Webcams unfortunately don't tell the whole picture - just how many folks are on the mountain, which as you can see are pretty minimal for this time of year due to the skiing conditions.
Edit to add: John its hard to say if there will be or will not be snow at Whistler in a month or so.... anything can happen. As I said last year we had some real big late season dumps that made up for the early season short fall
. I do know the situation is pretty well the same all the way down the west coast - the big ski towns in California are also suffering.
