Whistler, Grouse, Cypress Mountains Now Open For 2015-16 Season

Whistler To Host 2016 North American Junior Freeride Championships

While the first day of winter is still a month away, early snowfall on local mountains will allow snowboarders and skiers to get an early start to the 2015-16 season.

With 50 centimeters of snow, Grouse Mountain has announced it will open today, at 2:00pm.

Cypress Mountain will also open today, as the mountain celebrates the heaviest snowfall it’s received in the past year.

Whistler Mountain made its debut bright and early on November 19, one week ahead of schedule thanks to nearly 100 centimeters of fresh powder.

Whistler Blackcomb is celebrating it’s 50th anniversary, and will ring in the celebrations next Thursday by running five lifts with access to ten groomed runs and 1,000 acres of skiable terrain.

Big White in Kelowna was the first BC mountain to open for the season, which made its debut with select hills on November 13, the earliest opening for the mountain in 14 years.

Seymour Mountain has yet to announce its opening, but it’s safe to assume that it will be soon.
