In the 1980s the Whistler Question began posing a question to three to six people and publishing their responses under “Whistler’s Answers” (not to be confused with the Whistler Answer). Each week, we’ll be sharing one question and the answers given back in 1984. Please note, all names/answers/occupations/neighbourhoods represent information given to the Question at the time of publishing and do not necessarily reflect the person today.
Some context for this week’s question: This one seems pretty self explanatory, so we think we’ll leave it there.
Question: Do you think there will be more snow this year than last?
Mike Thaxter – Contractor – Brio
There is definitely going to be more snow. Caterpillars had woolly coats this year. Another sign is that I’m doing snow removal. It’s going to be a real old-fashioned winter.
Jim Wilson – Logger – Alpine Meadows
Yes, I think so. There were a lot of deer down lower in the valleys earlier this fall. Normally you don’t see them down so low.
Mark Dowling – Sous Chef – Whistler Centre
I feel, yes, since we had such a warm, dry summer the remaining part of the fall will be colder and damper than usual. It will be like it was four years ago.
