2015 - Opening Dates

2015 - Opening Dates

Who's excited for snow!? Whistler Blackcomb will be open soon!


We can all feel it as the mornings and nights become chillier, and the mountaintops become dusted with white - winter is coming. The summer was great, but winter - we missed you.

It won't be long now until all of us SnowSeekers are out feeling the cold air bite our cheeks, and our blood pumping hot as we plow through the pow.

Now you can start visualizing where you're going to strap your snow legs back on, as the ski resorts in the west announce their opening dates! A lot of resorts have tentative opening dates, as it's always down to Mother Nature when the snowflakes fall. So, dig out your snow gear, and start praying to Ullr for a bountiful 2015/16 season.

Help appease Ullr by sharing this page with your friends!


Check your favourite resorts' websites; there may be a pass sale on!

Also, check out our snow conditions - we will be regularly updating it as soon as the snow starts to fly.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to open Whistler Blackcomb on opening day for the winter season? Find out here!
