Whistler, B.C. – Snow is falling in Whistler’s alpine, holiday lights adorn the village and the resort is celebrating the start of the winter season with Black Friday savings.

Early season skiers and riders at Whistler have much more to look forward to than the season’s first tracks as the resort embraces the Black Friday and Cyber Monday craze, offering unprecedented early season deals.

Whistler’s Black Friday early season promotion begins at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, November 28 and runs through midnight on Monday, December 1. The exclusive two night/ two day stay and ski package includes accommodation and half-priced lift tickets and starts at $92 per person, per night for arrivals between November 28 - December 21.

Whistler Mountain opened November 22 – five days ahead of schedule – and Blackcomb Mountain opens today. With 72 centimetres of snow in the alpine over the past week and more in the forecast over the next couple of days, winter at Whistler is off to a great start. Ten-year average snowfalls of 2.3m/7.5ft in November and 2.0m/6.5ft in December mean that early season can provide some of the best skiing and riding of the season. Whistler’s Black Friday rates give you even more reason to share our early season.

Whistler’s Black Friday promotion will be available online at www.whistler.com/blackfriday starting at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, November 28.
