Whistler Blackcomb Launches Spring Operations And Deals (19-Mar-09)

Whistler, BC, March 19, 2009 - Spring is a season of transitions at Whistler

Spring is a season of transitions at Whistler Blackcomb. From powder to parties during the TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival April 17-26; and from boards to bikes when the Whistler Mountain Bike Park opens May 16; spring is the season for adventure hedonists.

A frontal system has been pounding the West Coast for the last week, resulting in 102cm/40” of fresh powder snow in the last seven days and another 45cm forecasted through to Monday. With another storm stacking up behind the current cycle, Whistler Blackcomb is set to enter the spring season snowy and strong.

"Spring just might be the best time of year in Whistler,” says skier Mike Douglas, Whistler Blackcomb Pro Team. “You can ski powder up top, then après at the GLC at the end of the day in your T-shirt. The Nintendo Terrain Parks soften up and this year the Highest Level Park will be going until the end. Just as the snow scene starts winding down, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park kicks into action. What more could you want?"
