I ride the east coast. Dont know what this freezing level shit is all about. It either rains or snows.

I am honestly thinking of canceling since its going to be raining. Dont want to waste a ton of money on shit conditions.

I dont know the mountain nor where I will be riding on the mountain. Just dont want to ride in rain.

First off I went to the link ok, so I am already a little T'd off about the whole situation. So please refrain from your NON funny jokes.


I just dont know what levels I will be riding at on the mountain or how the lifts work. I dont know shit basically and its pissing me off, lol, and to boot it looks like shit conditions. I dont even know how to get to the alpine where it will be snow and how much rain I will have to go through. Mother nature is such a bitch............FML

disclaimer: My only formal education about weather was in 6th grade.
Freezing level means that at that elevation and higher, the air temperature will remain below freezing. So if the freezing level is around 1200m (which is forecasted for one of the days next week), elevations above 1200m will stay below freezing. Whistler village is at 675m and the top of the mountain is about 2200m. At Whistler, it takes about 3 lifts to get to the top of the mountain. So you may be able to take the top lift repeatedly and stay on the good snow. Sometimes you can even stay above the clouds. But keep in mind that just because freezing levels are at 1200m does not mean that it can't rain above that elevation. Also, if it's warm, radiation from the sun can cause it to melt. Freezing level reflects air temperature and is a good approximation for understanding what snow conditions will be like, but it doesn't tell you everything.

Also there's a snow icon that shows that it should snow.

Thats my whole confusion, I cant tell by the interactive map where the elevation levels are. So I would know then 3/4's of the mountain is rain the tip is snow......

Not technically, it could rain on half the mountain and snow at just the top.....
