Tips on how to receive Snow and Lift Alerts. Tap the menu button to activate the icon-based menu. Tap the Inbox (envelope icon). Tap the Settings icon which is located towards the lower left of your Inbox:



Slide to turn on Snow Alerts. Pick the amount of snowfall and what time you'd like to receive your alert. We recommend 6:30am for the most accurate reading by the snow team. The measurement is based on 24hr snowfall.



For Lift and Alpine Zones: Slide to turn on Lift Status alerts from the main settings screen. Pick the type of alert, you can choose when lifts/zones open, close and/or go on standby. Choose the zones and lifts you'd like alerts from. You can pick as many lifts as you like or just that one favorite. These alerts are based on our on-mountain light boards which are managed by our Patrol team.



Now you're ready! Choose the "Done" button to return to the main settings screen.

Be Sure Your Phone has App Notifications Turned On

This is a good time to check and make sure you have Notifications turned on for the Whistler LiveApp. For Apple, run your Settings App and choose Notifications. Here, you can customize the type of alerts for the App. Find "Whistler" and customize the settings.
