Tom Richards—Journeyman Millwright. In the event of a lift malfunction of breakdown, Richards sees himself as a kind of technological or mechanical paramedic—working as quickly, efficiently and effectively as possible in the elements to get things back up and running, get people back skiing. And of course “keeping people safe is a crucial part of our role,” he says. - ©Jordan Manley

Joe Barnes—Snowmaking. When Mother Nature drops the ball, Joe Barnes and the snowmaking team are the unsung heroes that perform magic with air, water and cold temperatures. Joe’s job is unique in the valley, he says, and it’s amazing to work at night (shifts last 12hrs), cruising up and down the mountain on the snowmobile maintaining the snow guns. When Joe isn’t working, he’s slashing the piles of snow he helped create the night before or out ski touring, putting in more than a hundred days a season on skis. - ©Jordan Manley

Felix Breault—Cook. Originally from Montreal, Felix migrated west in search of mountains and a different balance. “Life’s better over here,” he says. “I snowboard almost everyday, everyone is in a good mood and there are lots of foreign girls!

Rayne Brooksbank—Groomer. In 1976, when an 18-year-old Rayne Brooksbank went looking for a job and applied to be a cat operator, they asked her, “can you run farm equipment?” The Ontarion assured the supervisor she could drive a tractor and became Canada’s first female cat driver. Almost four decades later, she continues to love her job as lead hand and winch cat operator, and is one of 10 women on the grooming crew. She skis Sundays, and not surprisingly, she delights in skiing clean corduroy. - ©Jordan Manley

Vicky Melling—Lifty. Vicky is two weeks into the ski hill’s most visible job. Having come from Manchester, she’s planning on staying the year to work, ski and enjoy the nightlife. Vicky’s story is ubiquitous in Whistler. Many 20-somethings make the trip over from the UK or Australia, intend to work only a single season for Whistler Blackcomb, but fall in love with the lifestyle and end up staying for good… lifty turned lifer.   - ©Jordan Manley

Jeff Caldicott—Heavy-Duty Mechanic, Fleet Maintenance. Jeff Caldicott and the Fleet Maintenance crew at Whistler Mountain are leading the North American ski industry. Their state-of-the-art cats groom the slopes at the cutting edge and are often involved in testing prototype cats and grooming equipment. The job is a constant learning curve, Jeff says, where they find themselves increasingly giving up the wrench for a computer fix. - ©Jordan Manley

Great bluebird day. Symphony bowl was amazing! Peak express was open but tracked out. Tons of powder at harmony too. Lower elevations are dangerous and no visibility

greay day today. there's still a ton of powder in the trees especially.  alpine was excellent conditions soft snow and plenty of it. coming from the east coast this is 100 times better then anything your going to find out there. Not sure where people are from that are complaining. haha. I have no complaints but down below is definitely wet and spring like slush. If you stay up top there is no reason you would ever want to go to the bottom.

Waited about and hour at the first lift and then another 30 min at the second lift. Not enough lifts were open. Lines were way to long. Only got about 10 runs in before I called it a day.

63cm in 24 hours! lift lines were crazy but you can find fresh tracks all day if you seek them out. Alpine areas are closed due to high winds but should open by monday.

a ton of snow but on Blackcomb only like 5 lifts open. No alpine runs because of the high winds. literally took an hour and a half to ride up wizard then solar and take the first run. visibility is zero at times. other than that awesome.

Not sure what all the hate is about. There is more terrain, trails and grooming open than anywhere else on the planet. Everyone seems to be having a blast and the sun is shining. It is Winter and no one can predict or create weather, so lighten up, stop your whining, grab your equipment and get up here and start Livin the Dream!!!

Skied here for along time and today was the worst I've seen it for this time of the year since 05/06. I believe the freezing level rose to 1800 meters yesterday then went down to the valley so it's pretty ice'y and hard packed below 1800 meters but above that (top of Glacier express, top of 7th heaven and t-bar area on Blackcomb) it wasn't to bad. How ever there is a major lack of snow and runs look covered and tempting but after you tag your board or skies by rocks that are just barley covered a few times you will realize there not. This is a picture I took today looking down at the top of the Glacier Express on Blackcomb. Stay high on the mountain and cruise the groomers or hike for the pow that's up there.

If anyone is saying its horrible, they didn't go up any higher than one lift. Here's the deal... I flew in from Chicago, and was bummed this morning... It was POURING at the base, and pretty warm. I waited until glacier express opened around 11:30am, and headed up the mountain. About a quarter of the way up the rain turned to snow and there was even sun and blue skies at the summit towards the end of the day. Most trails are decent packed powder, some ice and some rocks/bare patches, but there is lots of powder and great bumps to be found. Could be better, but the amount of terrain that is open makes up for it. Symphony and Harmony look like they have tons of potential tomorrow. This pic was taken around 2pm today (12/27). Stop complaining and start looking.

Once you get above the clouds and up to the end of the gondola, it was actually very pleasant. The sun peaked out at 12 and made it good fun. Don't waste your time at the base, the peak should be open tomorrow apparently.
