The anticipation for that first snowflake of the season to fall is high and everyone is counting down the days until the ski season starts. Locals are tuning and waxing their skis and snowboards and checking the mountain live cam everyday to see if snow has fallen on the mountain. As if to calm the nerves of anxious skiers, Whistler is bringing us the comfort of food and films this November.
