Skiing And Riding Continues On Whistler Mountain May 19 As Snowpack Permits (10-May-09)

Whistler, BC, May 10, 2009 - Whistler Mountain will re-open May 19 for late spring skiing and riding

Whistler Mountain will re-open May 19 for late spring skiing and riding, following Blackcomb’s last day on Monday, May 18. Recent snowfall, cooler temperatures, and a current snow base of 193cm have created the conditions for Whistler Blackcomb to continue to offer skiing and riding on Whistler Mountain.

“Currently the snow pack and coverage is good,” says Bob Dufour, Whistler Blackcomb vice president of mountain operations. “Operations crews will assess the terrain between now and May 18 to determine the best areas for skiing and riding. We anticipate offering a product on Whistler Mountain through to the end of May and we will continue to assess the conditions to see if skiing/riding in June is a possibility.”

Limited skiing and riding will be available from May 19 with uploading available from the Whistler Village Gondola only from 10am to 4pm. A few park features including rails will be available. Updated information on open lifts and terrain on Whistler Mountain will be available at whistlerblackcomb.com/whatsopen as operations decisions are confirmed. The Snow Report will also continue to be updated daily. The Snow Report number is 604-392-4211 locally or 604.687.7507 from Vancouver.
