Whistler Blackcomb Opening Day 2017: Ullr Delivered

All the ski and snowboard movie watching, forecast analyzing, gear tuning and powder day dreaming comes down to this – Happy early Opening Day!

Over 100 cm of fresh snow over the last few days made this an early Opening Day for the books, conditions were prime and people were stoked. How stoked, you ask? See for yourself in the video above and check out the #OnlyInWhistler round-up below.





Face shots were had at @whistlerblackcomb today. So stoked to be boarding again! 📷@bengirardi

Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place has clearly stuck. Whistler’s general laid-back lifestyle and immediate access to fun is what’s kept her around. When not hanging out on the Whistler Insider team Nikkey works as a freelance creative for outdoor and wellness brands. Nikkey’s favourite Whistler animal is the marmot- she just wants to pinch those fluffy cheeks! (but never would because she respects wildlife and really likes having her fingers attached to her hands.)
