WHISTLER, B.C. – It was an epic November in Whistler, with the most snowfall in the 30 years of ski area operations.

More than 18 feet (567 centemeters). fell, although down in the valley, some of that snow in recent days was rain, reports Pique Newsmagazine..

The storms also left two feet of rime ice on top of some lift towers, which had to be hammered off with plastic mallets. Resort officials also warned of seemingly bottomless tree wells, always a danger to skiers and sometimes a cause of fatalities. As well, the deep snow cloaked new crevasses that opened in the glacier areas during last summer’s uncommonly hot weather.
