Whistler B.C. Conditions Report and Photo Tour: Clear Skies and Alpine Chalk

The alpine and backcountry around Whistler will be really good the next few days. This is looking out towards Fissile from Whistler

This last week Whistler has been in and out of a nice storm cycle.  We finally had a good break of weather today and seems like the sun will continue through the week.  Recently things did a get a little warm and there is a melt freeze layer near the bottom of Red Chair on Whistler and near the bottom of Spankey’s on Whistler. Above that though the snow is consistent, predictable, and shredable.

Some pretty perfect turns near Flute Bowl today

Last night Whistler received 2cm of new snow.  This was just enough snow to cover up some of the skied out terrain, and when I got to Peak chair, I saw some distinct fresh turns from day.  Basically was just enough snow to freshen everything up, smooth out some of the moguls, and make it fun to hit some drops and wind lips.

Harmony was fairly tracked out but skied nice and soft.

The backcountry looked like it was super good so, I did a quick hike up to Flute bowl and found that where it was untracked the snow was excellent.  In the next few days the freezing level is supposed to rise, but if you stay in the alpine and out of runs that directly face the sun you should find some good turns.



wind lip
The wind lip underneath Peak chair was super fun to boost today.  Buddy Will sending it.
Peak chair got buffed out and was fun to hot lap
Harmony Waterfall
Harmony Waterfall was hit a ton today.
Sunbowl was good. Definitely more of crust layer here.
The snow was fairly skied out with a few cm of fresh to keep everything soft and fun.
