Whistler Blackcomb

If you haven’t been to Whistler Blackcomb yet, it should definitely be on your bucket list. And if you have, then you know what we’re talking about – simply put, it’s one of the best places to ski and holiday in the world!

Big, bold, and beautiful, skiing at Whistler Blackcomb has it all, with two spectacular mountains offering a combined 8,171 skiable acres from laser-cut fall line, steeps, gladded and glacier skiing on Blackcomb Mountain, to the locals favorite and organically developed Whistler Mountain with its famous bowls, shoots, cruisers, and extreme skiing.

Host to the 2010 Winter Olympics, Whistler Blackcomb has consistently rated the number one ski resort in North America as it continues to deliver consistent snow cover for almost 200 days a season.

With a wide variety of terrain choices from beginner to heart-pumping extreme, a vibrant ski village with countless dining options, bars, and a charging nightlife scene combined with endless outdoor activities that are well serviced with an abundance of ski-in/ ski-out accommodation – packed with friendly locals and international guests.

With two mountains to choose from, each of which can take you weeks, months, or even seasons to fully grasp and experience all the hidden skiing stashes they have to offer, because both are owned and operated by one company, you’ll only need one lift ticket – so the choice is yours when you wake up each morning!

When hosting the Olympics, the resort undertook the biggest single cable car expansion ever undertaken in the world, the Peak 2 Peak Gondola – so if you are at the top of Whistler, and your friends are saying come and join us over on Blackcomb you no longer have to ski down one mountain and up the other – simply jump on the Gondola for an amazing 2.7 mile (4.4 kilometres), 11-minute trip from the peaks of Whistler to Blackcomb and back again if you desire.

Whistler Blackcomb combines to deliver the largest skiable area in North America with a vertical drop of 5,280 feet (1,609 meters). The resort base elevation sits at a comfortable 2,142 feet (653 meters), which means the lower elevation of Whistler Village means you won’t have to deal with altitude sickness if you are coming from a lower elevation or from seal level.

The base elevation and its close proximity to the coast so the snow that falls at Whistler is a slightly heavier denser coastal wetter type of snow that falls as compared with the British Columbia interior resorts who on average receive a drier and lighter snowfall, however the close proximity to the coast also means more consistent snowfalls each season.
