Whistler is Open and a skiing bedtime story

Whistler Mountain is open!

People were excited and lining up… OK, for me opening day was awesome too. But seriously lining up for hours just to get maybe a few turns in extra? well, it is great to see how excited people get about skiing – I love it!
I have never seen anything like this in Austria. But hey, our glacier ski resorts are operating since September, so all the people who are really excited about the snow are skiing for a while already :)

You couldn’t ask for any better weather for Opening Day: Blue skies, sunshine and a couple of centimetres of fresh snow.
Checking the snow forecast right now brings a little smile on my face. At least a little bit of snow should come in the next couple of days. I can’t wait for that, the groomed runs are in pretty good conditions but we can easily use some more snow! :)

Little skiing bed time story

Here is a little video I found on the web the other day. It is just a very nice made story about “Stress, Snowfall and the Inner Child”:

OK, lets pray for snow and I will keep you posted with some reports of the early season days here at Whistler Blackcomb

See you on the snow,
