Whistler Blackcomb has received over 3 metres of snow to kick off this winter and this past week our Colorado resorts have received a bunch of snow, with Vail showing off a sweet 46cm of the fresh stuff! Along with having the option of floating through the powder in the trees or carving up the groomers thanks to the Epic Australia Pass, there are free events kicking off in Vail, Breckenridge, Park City and Whistler Blackcomb that you won’t want to miss. Here’s the rundown of what you can expect this December…
