Visitor Reviews of Whistler

After leaving the UK on Saturday 15th Feb at 6am, I arrived on the Sunday 16th Feb at 12am with our coach driver saying we've brought the snow this week and its been snowing since then.
The lift lines, at 9am on the 16th, were 40 plus mins long at the base stations. Yes, it was Sunday so everyone was up and out. We took the Excalibur lift and once up it spreads out there are runs to keep you going.

We said we will do fresh tracks in the morning though we knew what was to come. We arrived at 6.10am only to find at least 250 plus people in front of us in the queue. The queue behind us went back passed Blacks bar by 6.45.
We got to the roundhouse restaurant from the breakfast, which I must say is worth it and we were out the door by 8.35am.
We had good runs and stayed up by Harmony and Symphony instead of dropping down lower. We dropped into some bowls and it was quality.
We decided to do fresh tracks again and meet at the same time only there weren't as many people in the queue; say about 70.
We had some awesome runs as we finished breakfast earlier this time and was out by 8.20am.
There were a lot of the bowls closed but the peak to peak was open so we hopped over to Blackcomb and down to the base station.
We stopped down by Whistler village at 2.30pm and ended up in the Garibaldi Lift Company for a drink and dinner. Whilst we were sitting by the window the snow on top of the outside bar stools was at least 12 to 15 inches and it was still coming down.
We left at 4.45pm, bought 2 more fresh tracks tickets for the morning because we know what's awaiting us.
Like you say, everyone has been saying its been dry for 5 weeks but this week its been awesome. Granted the lift queues are long (10-15 mins) but it's so civilised you don't mind and trust me I've been snowboarding since 1992, to Europe, during all periods; nobody here queue jumps.
For many years I've wanted to come here and like you I would have been very disappointed if it hadn't snowed but you can't predict mother nature.
My mate with me has been here 4 times before and yes, twice it's been like sheets of ice. We are both advanced snowboarders, 37 and 46 years old so we are mature with full time jobs at home and are grinning ear to ear.
If it snows here it's awesome though because it's a holiday period it is busy and it does get tracked out quickly.
Would I come back? No, because coming from the UK it's very expensive to get here and the lift ticket prices are extortionate, though the food is reasonably priced compared to Europe and for it not to snow it's a waste of a holiday. I'm only here until the 22nd but my mate is here until the 27th.

If you live locally the weather forecast seems pretty accurate and you can make your way here. To pre book this as a holiday it hit or miss if the conditions are anything to go by.
The atmosphere is very friendly, the village has everything from expensive to family spar type convenient supermarkets.
I'm staying at the Holiday Inn so it's only minutes to the lifts. It's central so no complaints there.
For me, it's too packed, too busy, too many hungry powder hounds who even take their children up on fresh tracks in the morning. Poor kids must have been up since 5am.
There are too many flat spots for snowboarders if you don't know the runs well or are prepared to hike to get to those stashes.
The backcountry is epic but you need a guide or someone who knows it well. The pistes are long some are bashed well others mogulled.
It's my 4th day tomorrow so hopefully a full day of snow has left a good coverage. Fresh tracks in the morning!

As I'm a college lecturer I can't pick and choose when I can take my holidays but I've been to Banff and Fernie during mid Feb and it's been empty compared to here.
Yes, it's cosmopolitan, it's lively, it's accessible, the staff are fabulous, there are plenty of places to stay, the fun park looks top class but there are some old drag lifts that could do with being replaced with chairlifts.
When the weather's good it's awesome, if not I'd hate to think about it especially as a freeriding snowboarder who doesn't do park and pipe.
BTW I'm up again in 5 hours!
