Early season for ski hills

An early visit from Old Man Winter is allowing B.C. ski hills to open early this year.

Kelowna's Big White has seen a lot of snow and is targeting Nov. 23 for an opening date.

Nordic, snowshoe and fat bike trails are open at SilverStar Mountain Resort near Vernon, with Alpine expected to open Nov. 23. As of Saturday, the Star had a snow base of 146 cm.

Apex Mountain Resort in the South Okanagan had a base of 46 cm.

Whistler Ski Resort opened Nov. 17.

Staff at the mountain also said they'd had a "streak of prime snow making conditions" to add to the blanket of natural powder.

Cypress and Grouse mountains opened Friday, Nov. 10 thanks to a few days of cooler-than-usual temperatures. Both hills said this year's season opening was one of the earliest on record.

Sun Peaks near Kamloops has also opened for the season.
