Sun Peaks received its first real dose of Vitamin D this weekend as the sun came out for some beautiful bluebird conditions. Crystal stole the show on Saturday, swimming above the cloud layer, but on Sunday the entire mountain was bathed in wonderful sunshine. As promised, there was great snow on Mt. Morrisey for its seasonal debut. As Mother Nature continues with her generosity Sun Peaks can look forward to full winter operations soon.
The crew also hit Mt. Morrisey hard as it hadn’t really been done since it opened, including a locals’ favourite, Spin Cycle. Delta’s Return was re-graded to make it more user friendly for people heading back to that side of the mountain.
Whistler Blackcomb is busy preparing for the upcoming ski and snowboard season with over 70 cm (28 in) of snow falling in the past week. Last season in November Whistler Blackcomb experienced the snowiest month ever with 560 cm (220 in). With the La Niña weather system forecasted to bring cooler temperatures and more precipitation than normal to the region, could this be the start to another record month?
Countdown to opening day, November 25, is on!
