Whistler Blackcomb is busy preparing for the upcoming ski and snowboard season with over 70 cm (28 in) of snow falling in the past week.

With the La Niña weather system forecasted to bring cooler temperatures and more precipitation than normal to the region, could this be the start to another record month?

And more still to come.
October 25, 2010. It’s been a white weekend in Steamboat, as Mother Nature paid a much anticipated visit to Ski Town, U.S.A. with 14.5 inches of snow falling at Thunderhead, the resort’s mid-mountain location at 9,080 feet, in the past 72-hours.
“Mother Nature showed just how fast she can go from fall to full winter and reminded all of us that it’s never too early to make sure your equipment is waxed up, season passes are in hand and you’re getting into shape for a fantastic season,” said Rob Perlman, senior vice president of marketing & sales for Steamboat.
The National Weather Service is forecasting a strong cold front will sweep over the region today bringing periods of heavy snowfall with very strong winds and areas of blowing and drifting snow to the northern and central Colorado Mountains. Snow accumulations will range from 8 to 16 inches across the mountain today. Areas of orographic snowfall with continue over the northern Colorado Mountains Tuesday and Tuesday night before diminishing on Wednesday.
Meteorologists are calling for a La Niña weather cycle this winter, which bodes very well for Steamboat,” said Doug Allen, vice president of mountain operations for Steamboat. “The last La Niña took place during the winter of 2007/08, when the Steamboat Ski Area recorded 489 inches of snow at mid-mountain before it was all said and done.”
