The high pressure will prevail into early next week. The arctic outflow will bring colder temperatures today into tomorrow with stronger winds in the alpine. A change is forecasted for Saturday evening with slightly warmer temperatures. Long term sees an off shore flow developing Tuesday with the possibility of some light snow on Wednesday, hope this is the end of the blocking pattern!!

Yesterday's Satellite picture, there was certainly a nice hole over Whistler most of the day.


The high gets pinched a bit on Saturday.

Thank You Snowmaking, Lets hope we get a weather pattern change next Wednesday.


Not sure if this is the same mountaineer as yesterday, but willing to go where most people do not.
