(CBS Seattle) — Whistler Mountain is opening this Saturday, nearly two weeks earlier than planned, thanks to colder temperatures, excellent snowmaking and natural snow.
Five lifts will start running Saturday, Nov. 16 and skiers can ride the Whistler Village or Creekside Gondolas.
Blackcomb Mountain is opening as scheduled on Thanksgiving Day, November 28.
