Whistler this morning—Saturday, Dec. 9

A quick look at weather, mountain and highway conditions in the resort

Happy Saturday, Whistler! Here's how things are looking out there so far.

Today's forecast calls for snow—up to 10 centimetres—and a high of about -1 C in Whistler. A high of -2 C is expected overnight, with more flurries in the forecast. Looking to tomorrow, forecasters are predicting a chance of flurries with a high of about 0 C.

On the mountain, Whistler Blackcomb is forecasting a high of -4 C and a low of -7 C, with light winds. The freezing level sits at 800 metres. The mountain operator is reporting no fresh snow in the past 24 hours, and forecasting cloudy skies with snow developing around noon.

WB is reporting 15 groomed runs and 157 acres on Whistler, and 14 groomed runs and 132 acres on Blackcomb.

"Cloudy with snow developing after noon. Accumulation expected is 9-14 cm. Low winds in the valley, high winds in the alpine," reads WB's morning mountain outlook.

"A weak ridge of high pressure will bring clear periods this evening before the next system then approaches bringing snow tomorrow afternoon along with gusty ridgetop winds. The system will move on eastwards on Sunday afternoon as milder temperatures develop into the middle of next week with continued patchy cloud and no organized weather systems expected through the second half of next week."

The avalanche danger rating in the Sea to Sky region is moderate, according to Avalanche Canada.

"Expect avalanche hazard to increase through the day as storm snow accumulates," the avalanche forecaster said on its website.
