Visitor Reviews of Whistler

Angela Griffiths from United Kingdom writes:

I am in Whistler right now; arrived on Friday. We were really concerned with the reports of no snow and admittedly we are getting nowhere near the Whistler experience. However, absolutely fab alpine skiing at the top of Whistler and more lifts and slopes opened yesterday to cope with weekend visitors. Still having a wonderful time and some great slopes and skiing available. Probably the best weekend here for a month plus the lovely Canadians have everything under control. I love skiing in France but so refreshing to have safe areas and none of the threatening high speed skiers and polite queues.
