Calling all snow enthusiasts! Whistler Blackcomb is steadily turning into a winter wonderland as guests and residents on the mountain woke up to a frosty view this morning.
The popular ski and snowboard resort had its first snowfall of the season back in September. Its webcam at the bottom of Catskinner Chair recorded the dusting stating that, “Rain in the valley means..”
People took to their Instagram accounts to share the excitement, as Blackcomb gears up for another season.
A couple of days ago Blackcomb posted a picture on Instagram that displayed a thick coating of powder at the bottom of the hill from the Roundhouse Webcam.
Cold Front: Whistler and the Lower Mainland
The lower mainland thought it had an unseasonably early snowfall a couple of days ago when South Surrey and White Rock were coated in hail. Coquitlam had an earlier scare back in September.
Environment Canada says that all the cold, frosty weather is due to a low pressure front over the lower mainland.
