18 Feet for Whistler Blackcomb

18 Feet for Whistler
A heavy November brings record-breaking snows to B.C.'s biggest

Guess we should stop bragging about Colorado now. We've just gotten word that some serious records are being broken up at Whistler Blackcomb -- and it's barely December. Over 18 feet of snow has fallen on those lucky slopes, or as the Canadians say, 5.5 "metres." We're not sure, but we think a metre is a Canadian measurement unit similar to our infinity. We do know that's an awful lot of snow -- the snowiest month on record for Whistler. To put that into perspective, the normal average for November is just under five feet; 2009's numbers are almost four times that much. The last record, set in the banner year of 2006, was a mere 185 inches, a full four feet less than 2009. And with almost all of its season still to go, Whistler has already hit half of its annual snowfall average of 33 feet. Alright, we apologize for all the numbers, but we're trying to do something other than look at these Whistler videos with our mouths hanging open.
