November 25, 2010 — Several ski resorts in BC are open for business as Old Man Winter makes an early appearance.

The ski and snowboarding season is off to an early start in British Columbia, thanks to an early blast of winter.

Whistler Mountain opened on Friday, November 19 - six days ahead of the original schedule. The slopes at Grouse Mountain opened the same day, while Cypress Mountain and Sun Peaks got their season started last Saturday.

Now, crews at Mount Seymour are gearing up for the start of another ski season. The public will be able to carve up the slopes on Thursday, November 25.

The early opening is thanks to heavy snow that has been blanketing the mountains since last month. Parts of Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland have also been seeing snow this week. In fact, Metro Vancouver has been under a snowfall warning twice in only a matter of a few days.

Forecasters are calling for a La Nina winter this year, which could make for ideal ski and snowboarding conditions in the mountains of BC.
