Whistler Weather Early December
Can anyone tell me what the weather is generally like the first week of December at Whistler/Blackcomb? Is there snow in the village by that time or is it still touch and go weather-wise?<BR><BR>Thanks for your help!!

You can't predict the weather in this part of the world - it may be 12 deg. Celcius and sunny with no snow and the next day freezing rain or snow in the village. So tough and go it is!

Sue's right...<BR><BR>However, I was there on the *second* week of December, and snow was everywhere... and there was LOTS of it. They even had to shut down the Sea-to-Sky highway south of Whistler because the snow was falling faster than they could clear it.<BR><BR>But, as Sue said, it's hard to tell. This year the first week of December may be warmer... and there might not be any snow in the village.<BR><BR>Either way, snow in the village or not, there's always snow on the mountains by December... and if you plan to ski or snowboard, that's where it counts. ;)

Last year we had 7 feet of snow fall in the first 2 weeks of December, and that was just in the village. The mountain got 12 feet. We were supposed to get another 2 feet the following day but it rained all day instead,which wasn't a bad thing , because i don't know where we would have put it. It then got sunny and cold for the next 2 weeks. In other words , anything can happen here in December. But it is a nice time to be here, because the village is all lit up for the holidays, and the real crowds don't start arriving until about the 15th of December. Enjoy!!!
