skiing in late May

My 2 teenagers want to snowboard in late May. Is this possible? What else would be good for a morning activity before leaving at 12:00?

Late May is a dicey proposition. It depends on how much snow, plus people accessing the mountain, dictates how late the mountains will be open. Some years, June, while others Mid May.

Best bet is to keep up to date the snow confitions www.whistlerblackcomb.com

Hi Judy

You might check the Whistler-Blackcomb website provided above by "PuffPuffPassRoss" for info on snowboard camps. The mountains will likely be closed otherwise. May can be either sunny and hot or rainy & stormy, and the snow conditions moving from bullet proof ice to mush by afternoon. Not ideal for sliding except for perhaps the highest elevations. Most young people by then are gearing up for the mountain bike season.

Weekends in May can also get quite noisy/rowdy with high school graduation parties especially our Victoria Day Long Weekend (May 19-21). Your teens might appreciate this but will you? You could have yourselves wonderful time in Whistler, exploring the village and valley trails, but the snowboarding might have to be a secondary consideration.

The only time I was there in May was mid-May two years ago. The snow was springy-slushy by the afternoon, but there was quite a bit of it. If you can go earlier, do so. If not, it´s hard to predict what the end of the season will be like this early, but conditions may be pretty good end of May.
