I also recommend 7th Heaven. On a blue bird day it's sun drenched right away in the morning and you'll get some awesome views. If I can find the photos that I took when I was there in 2009 I'll post a couple.

I just came back from whistler last week. And OMG its amazing. BUT, if you went below the alpine it was basically all ice.

7th heaven was all super deep powder, All the back bowls on whistler was super deep pow too. Thats the symphony chair, that area was basically epic. The other great chair was harmony and then also the peak express. Take those 3 chairs and you will have powder all day. I am so spoiled now lol.

Last weekend there was a big snow dump right?
I'm kinda worried about the snow conditions on the weekend since the last time it snowed would probably be wed?

There was a dump last week, but it was all pretty wet/heavy and far from ideal.

Wednesday just got ~20cm, but it was awesome. When they finally opened the alpine yesterday (high winds Wednesday), there was over a foot and I had my best run of the season getting first lines in a bunch of spots on Symphony. Took the crowds a few hours to get over there, I think it's my new go-to spot once the alpine opens.

No snow in the foreseeable future, but even groomer days are fun on Whistler, especially if you're new here.

Apparently, the last two Aprils got more snow than this January or February.

Also hit the Blackcomb wind lip, hike to the top off of the t-bar take in the awesome view then sail off that lip.

Appreciate all the replies. Got back from Whistler a couple weeks ago and it was definitely all it was made to be. Even though we didn't get any new pow while on our stay, the conditions and mountain were still epic. The town & night life is like nothing else I've witnessed yet for a ski town in my travels. Aspen is up there maybe for the town, but Whistler is definitely a higher gear. The two mountains of Whistler & Blackcomb are some of the most versatile terrain you can get in a ski day out West. And now with Peak2Peak, and some new quads coming next year in needed areas, it will be even better.

I need to go back.

Best burger: Definitely check out Splitz Burger while you're in town. Easily one of the best burgers I've ever had anywhere.

- Also check out Fat Tony's pizza behind Zog Dog and next to Showcase Snowboards. $2 slices are a very cheap lunch vs. mountain food.
Yes, Fat Tony's and Splitz! If you have a car.. about 2mi away from the village is Bob's BBQ! AWESOME! The brisket!

Just got back from Whistler yesterday.

Luckily, we got some pow, and then some sun too. Plus lots of corduroy on Sunday. It's a big and diverse mountain, and the options, scene and overall experience are great. That's what a 'real' winter (and mtb) resort should be. My wife and kids now say they want to live there

21 was a nice place for some food and drinks. Sushi Village got spendy with the amount of drinking that I do and the long wait at the bar area. The sake margaritas have almost no alcohol imo; best to get a reservation or you can wait a lot. Merlins is great. La Brassrie wasn't good, can't remember the rest, and didn't manage to visit some of the recommended restaurants... This time around my wife wasn't in the mood for clubbing last time I remember it wasn't like Miami or something but still fun
