On Saturday, April 25 we headed to Whistler with daughter Kristie and her boyfriend Eric in tow. Through the week the forecast for Saturday had alternated between sunny and 6 C at top to 10 cm of snow and-3 C at the summit. April is a time of changeable weather in coastal B.C. where one day you might have great spring conditions and the next day you might be skiing powder. As it turned out we had a sun/cloud mix with highs of -1 C or so in the alpine which gave us great packed powder skiing up high and good corn snow skiing at mid mountain. Since only Whistler is open at this time of year we parked at Creekside which we like since it means a short walk from the covered parking lot to the lifts.
