Weekly Ops Update – Jan 11

A friendly reminder that a physical pass is required to access the resort.

The Fire & Ice show is back this week! Join us for this free family event on January 14th at 7:30 pm in Skier’s Plaza.

Given the cold temperatures we are experiencing, we would like to remind guests to dress appropriately for the weather, take warm-up
breaks as needed, and drink hot beverages. Check yourself and your companions frequently for white patches on exposed skin and be sure
to go inside to warm up if you see any.

Please note: Garbo’s Grill will be closed on January 12th due to cold weather. Garbo’s Capp Bar will remain open.

Mandatory Download to Creekside. Whistler Village and Blackcomb ski-outs are open. Be wary of variable conditions and unmarked rocks
and obstacles.

With the recent snowfall, Patrol would like to emphasize that snow levels remain lower than average in the high alpine. Even though there is
new snow and the alpine is open, there are still concerns about natural hazards, including rocks, crevasses, and other features that haven’t
been covered yet. Please stick to groomed and open trails within your ability level and only leave the boundary if equipped.

Please be advised that there is strictly no uphill travel allowed outside of designated uphill routes. Engaging in uphill travel outside these
designated areas is a violation that will result in the loss of pass privileges.
