Whistler opens for skiing and snowboarding this Friday

Nov 15 2017, 3:10 am

Attention skiers and snowboarders! It’s officially go-time at Whistler Blackcomb.

Hot on the heels of early openings by Grouse and Cypress this past weekend, the world-renowned resort has announced it will be opening early for the season as well.

Originally scheduled to open on November 23, the resort will instead begin winter operations this Friday, November 17.

Lifts scheduled to start turning this week include the Whistler Village Gondola, Creekside Gondola, Big Red Express, Emerald Express, and Franz’s.

Officials are reminding riders that while early-season stoke will no doubt be out in full force, early-season conditions will still be present as well.

Skiers and snowboarders are asked to respect all mountain signage, ski and ride on open runs only and stay within the operational area marked by boundary signage.
