No more sleeps! Today, Whistler Blackcomb is open for the 2021/22 winter season. In Whistler, we’ve been salivating since the snow started falling in October, and we couldn’t be more stoked for the first gondola ride. We can’t wait to welcome you back to our beautiful alpine oasis.
Our thoughts are with everyone throughout the province affected by the recent flooding. We’ve got a long season ahead of us and, for those who are unable to join us on Opening Day, we look forward to welcoming you back to our legendary terrain later this season.
The Goods Report
So far this November, we have received 190 cm of snow, with the forecast calling for moderate to heavy accumulation throughout the day on opening day, and a further 20 cm of fresh snow possible by Thursday night. Most have likely been checking the forecast on a daily basis since October, so this won’t be new information.
Need to Know
This season should feel very similar to previous seasons at Whistler Blackcomb. Please remember to check our indoor COVID-19 safety protocols. Here’s what you need to know:
Vaccinations are not required to ski or ride
We will not have a mountain reservation system this season.
Face coverings are required when inside our buildings, on our buses and on our gondolas.
We are excited to open with skiing to mid-mountain on both mountains on opening day.
Roundhouse and Rendezvous restaurants will be open – and yes, that includes the Umbrella Bar!
If you’re wanting to stop for some hot or cold food at one of our restaurants, or stop by the Umbrella Bar for a Caesar, please take the time to read through our dining policies. And remember to bring your BC Vaccine Card and valid piece of government-issued photo identification.
Before heading up for your first powder day, please take the time to read our COVID-19 safety information. And have a great day out there!
