Canadian army? Hardly. See who really keeps Whistler safe.

Blackcomb's avy forecasters start everyday at 6am. This gives them a chance to read weather updates and make a plan for any necessary avy control that has to happen. The rest of the patrol staff starts between 7 and 730 depending on how much control work needs to be done. They gather at the patrol offices at the top of Solar Coaster for their morning meeting at 730. This gives them a chance to address any issues that may have arisen the previous day, and to get a full weather update.
