Weekly Ops Update – Feb 22

Snow is on the menu for this weekend, with an appetizing 2-4 cms expected Saturday and a main course of 10-15 cms on track for Sunday. (Insider tip: Sunday’s dump may come later in the day, so the goods may best be had on Monday!)

On Saturday, February 24, our Hours of Operation will extend to 4:00pm. That’s an extra 30 minutes to get your turns in! (Note: Sightsee hours move to 4:00pm on Sunday, February 25.)

On February 23 and 24, we’ll be hosting the 38th annual Peak to Valley Race, presented by See Ya Later Ranch, on Whistler Mountain. This is the longest GS race of its kind on the planet, taking participants from the top of the Saddle down to Vuarnet Road on Mid Franz. Please note the following closures on both days: The Saddle, Little Red Run, Fisheye, Upper Franz and Lower Franz. There will be signs in place for these closures in the following locations: Peak Chair Load, Peak Chair Unload, Top of Saddle, Top of Harmony and Roundhouse Lodge.

Repair work continues on the burst Village Run snowmaking pipe. A narrow ski out into Whistler Village via Blackcomb Mountain remains available.

A friendly reminder that a physical pass is required to access Whistler Blackcomb as mobile pass and ticket features on the new My Epic App are not yet available in Canada. Please visit any Guest Services location to print out your physical pass.

And finally: we expect another busy weekend on the mountains. Please, look out for each other by skiing and riding safely. That includes reducing speeds in designated slow zones, and respecting all ropes, signage and ski area boundary markers. Below are some important tips for speed and collision safety. We also strongly encourage guests to review the Alpine Responsibility Code.

BE READY – Be ready to slow down or avoid objects or other people at any time. Ski and ride in such a way that you are always able to control yourself regardless of conditions and avoid others and objects you may encounter on the run, groomed or otherwise.

STAY ALERT – Stay alert to what’s going on around you, especially other skiers and riders. Being aware of those around and changing conditions will help you have a fun and safe day on the hill.

PLAN AHEAD – Ease up at blind spots, check uphill when merging onto trails, and give other skiers plenty of room when passing. Look out for spots on the run where traffic merges or you can’t see what’s coming next. If you are unfamiliar with a run, take it easy the first time down it and make note of places where you’ll want to slow down, such as cat tracks and rollers. Also, give other skiers and riders lots or room, especially if you are passing them. There’s plenty of space out there, so there’s no need to crowd each other.
