What’s the weather like in Whistler in December?
December and January are the coldest months in this famous Canadian ski resort. The Whistler weather in December will be well below freezing and with frequent snow, but the sun still shines and makes for perfect skiing conditions on the amazing mountain slopes.
Whistler, and the neighbouring resort of Blackcomb, boasts a brilliant location by Canada’s Coast Mountain range. The town’s on Canada’s south west Pacific coast and with the ocean not too far away, the climate doesn’t get as bitterly cold as Banff does in the Rockie Mountains. Snowfall in December can top 3m.
The weather in Whistler in December is ideal for skiing. It’s cold and crisp with an average daytime temperature of -5°C. The average night time level is a very chilly -8°C. The sunshine is still pleasant in December around the mountains. There’s an average of four hours each day from nine hours of daylight and the sun doesn’t set until 4.10pm for much of the month. The rainfall’s heavy here in British Colombia, with over 200mm falling but much of that is wintery. The wind speed’s low at around 5mph and the humidity should measure 92%.
