Fun day. Hiked up Flute and found some soft stuff in upper half of bowl. Also, some decent groomers with 1/2" of soft top. However crowds looked like line of ants from afar as they were packed thick on some of these. We found some areas to be solo.

The crocus are up, the bicycles are out, the lower elevation looks like it is April or May. HOWEVER they are making snow thus week and the higher elevations are totally skiable. The sun is out for the next few days. We did fresh Tracks yesterday. Still worth it. Best skiing is in the am. See you up there!

Been here for last 14 days and had a blast. Lower slopes are a no go but there's loads of fun still to be had. Except at 7th Heaven. Worst name yet.

If you are a powder snob, don't bother. We've been here for 6 days Had fun EVERY day. There is plenty of good snow. Very limited icy spots but hard packed most places. They are doing a good job of making it decent. The slush on the last run down is really fun. Almost like surfing wave. waves. waves.

Some snow is better than no snow, right? Good thing Whistler still has a lot of it. Mid mountain and up is still tons of fun, plenty of stashes to ride. Anyone telling you to cancel just wants the snow to themselves. Hit the slopes right when they open and take an early lunch.

Good groomers up top, plenty of runs to choose from, some very good groomers but icy spots are prevalent. Yday had two to three inches of powder up top, total dust in crust. Come on up if you are content e blue groomers. Stay at home if you are powder hungry. No snow down low

The top of both mountains are just fine, not great, but plenty of coverage. Spring like on blue bird days, lots of fun !

Good coverage as long as you stay high on either mountain. Yes, other years have been better, but if Tahoe is what you're used to, you'll have plenty of fun. Can't beat the blue bird days / views.

I've been watching reports for weeks after booking my trip in Seotember, and came close to forfeiting my non refundables and canceling the trip. Thanks for the eye opening reports of good conditions up top, which is exactly what we found. I've skied here before and had plentiful snow, and this is definitely not that. But they've done a good job with what they have, as long as you stay above mid mountain. 7th Heaven and Jersey were lots of fun, if you stay on the groomers you'll be very happy. otherwise, you will find very hard packed and icy surfaces. Nonetheless, lots of fun and plenty to choose from!

I just spend 15 minutes typing out a report but this shitty app failed to post it and to be frank I can't be arsed to type it out again, so here is the gist..... Agree with other posts, best snow up top, but visibility is variable, Groomers are good, most people on greens, so contested...go for blues, which are quiet. Mid mountain is good, but hard work as surface continually changes - be prepared to adapt your style several times per run and make sure your edges are sharp. Overall, we have had several bluebird days, which were amazing. If I was a local, I may be disappointed, but we don't regret flying here from the UK, because "bad" conditions at Whistler, are way better than "good" conditions elsewhere.

Great day! Great snow up top and on symphony / harmony. Don't stay mid mountain otherwise you'll have to whine like everyone else on here. Go and have fun!! (Fyi I drove all the way from Seattle three weekends in a row, because it's the best snow you can get)

Went snowboarding for 3 days- conditions range from bulletproof ice to wakeboarding on slush towards lower mountain. Great visibility, very low snow coverage, crowded... Not the best Whistler BC experience. Pray for colder conditions and snow!
