Nov 23 2016, 7:45 pm

It’s official – Whistler is open for skiing and snowboarding, and if you’re heading up there, you’re in for a treat – they just got a huge dump of snow.

The resort got 25 cm of snowfall overnight on Tuesday and there’s more white stuff in the forecast for for Wednesday and Thursday too.

While it’s only Whistler Mountain that’s open today, Blackcomb Mountain will be open on Thursday too, with first uploads at 8:30 am on both days.

As you would expect, there’s plenty of powderhounds already up there. Here’s a round up of some of the best photos from opening day.

Stoke factor: contagious. 😁🎉
