5 Jul 10 - This past winter's record snowfall is still hanging on, leaving parts of the alpine as a winter wonderland, says Whistler-Blackcomb spokeswoman Lauren Everest.

Whistler-Blackcomb reopens with summer snow"We've actually opened up an alpine tube park on Whistler Mountain for the first time ever up at the Roundhouse Lodge," said Everest.

"We've also opened up a snowshoeing course also on Whistler Mountain in lieu of alpine hiking that in seasons past we would have had going by this point," she said.

Over on Blackcomb Mountain, the resort recently reopened for skiing and boarding on the Blackcomb Glacier.

        "I am headed out there for my 2 weeks of summer vacation. I have
         been going to this area for 20 years and I have never seen a ski-hill
         open in July," says Kevin.
