With the season’s first snow gracing the peaks of Whistler Blackcomb, the anticipation for opening day, November 28, 2013, is building, and eager skiers and riders are crossing off the days on their calendars. In the first episode of season 2 of The Wonder Reels, this build-up of anticipation is outlined, from the mountain’s first snow all the way to opening day.
