More snow on the way for Whistler

Up to 20 cm of heavy snowfall predicted by Tuesday
Winter has finally arrived in Whistler—and more snow is on the way.

All those odes to Ullr and ski burns are starting to pay dividends—more snow is on the way for Whistler on Monday afternoon.

According to an Environment Canada snowfall warning, between 15 and 20 centimetres will fall in the valley before tomorrow.

"A frontal system developing offshore will bring light snow to these regions starting this morning," reads the warning. "The heaviest snow is expected to fall late this afternoon and overnight. The heavy snow will ease after midnight, but light snow will continue into Tuesday morning. Visibility may be suddenly reduced at times in heavy snow. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions."

The warning comes just days after a whopping 42 centimetres gifted Whistler Blackcomb its first pow day of the 2023-24 ski season. As of the morning of Jan. 8, Whistler Blackcomb was reporting a base depth of 138 cm.

But be warned—all the recent snow is not without its dangers, according to Avalanche Canada, which listed the risk in the Sea to Sky as moderate to considerable as of Monday afternoon.

"Get ready for another winter storm. Avalanche hazard will rise as snow accumulates," the avalanche forecaster said on its website.
