Whistler Conditions Report: Slushy Days

Essex making a slushy, fast turn off of 7th Heaven

Within this past week Whistler has seen a lot of sun and some clouds mixed in here and there.  The mornings may be a bit icy and hardpack all over the mountain but as long as you wait until the afternoon and ski the sunny slopes you will have a good time skiing off of the groomers.  These warm temperatures have made the snow pretty fun by later in the day with some soft spring skiing.  Shaded areas have remained firm but the grooming has been on point making it possible to rip super fast without any worries.


The Coulior skis really well in the late afternoon with some nice steep slush

I have been skiing on 7th for most days and the Coulior on the skiers right side by the late afternoon for some soft steep snow.  The park has also been really fun to venture into if that is your game.

With the longer days as well I have seen people go for longer missions due to the awesome corn cycle and stable snow.  These would include missions up to Atwell and Wedge.  I am sure everywhere people have been getting after it though in the Sea to Sky Corridor.

Looking like late spring conditions down low, but there is still hope with this storm coming in this week

Although it may feel like late April right now in Whistler there is still some hope for the winter.  It seems like this next week will be seeing a fairly large system roll in which will freshen up the upper mountain, and give some life back to this winter as long as the temperatures stay cold.
