Sure the wet weather sucks. But if you’re looking for a silver lining to the soaking that Vancouver received over the weekend, it’s that all that water is turning to snow at the higher reaches of BC’s mountain resorts.

Unfortunately, it’s not cold enough yet for local mountains like Cypress, Grouse, or Seymour to get a dusting. However, the good news for snow enthusiasts is that the white stuff has already begun to settle on Whistler Blackcomb.
A glimpse at the resort’s webcams this morning shows a fully fledged flurry of wintery weather is currently swirling around the upper elevations of the mountain, with snow settling at both the Whistler and Blackcomb Alpine areas.
But don’t get excited just yet. With sunnier weather set for the area for the rest of the week you’re going to have to wait a while before you start hitting the slopes.
Whistler Blackcomb is currently scheduled for a November 24, 2016 opening while the North Shore mountains typically open in early-December each year, depending if there is sufficient snow.
