Whistler turns on guns to get the season started
If you're thinking about a ski holiday in Whistler, you'll be delighted to hear that the resort is already getting ready for opening on November 23rd.
"Our guns turn on automatically when the temperature dips to minus two Celsius," said Bob Dufour, Vice President of Mountain Operations.
"Today we're sitting at around minus five Celsius and minus three mid-mountain, optimal temperatures for a quality snow product."
A total of 225 snow guns mean ski holidays in Whistler never run the risk of running out of quality snow. This is just the back up, of course, as you'll witness some of the average 33 feet of snow that falls at the resort each year.
Whistler ski holidays also offer great facilities for the snowboarders in your group, with numerous parks and pipes for you to test your skills.
