Whistler: The Ultimate Big Mountain Ski Experience

Discover Canada’s legendary Whistler Blackcomb Resort with this expansive collection of adventures.





Everything about Whistler comes in extra large proportions: 12 meters of average snowfall per year, 1610m of vertical and 8,171 acres of diverse terrain spread across two massive side-by-side mountains, Blackcomb and Whistler. With 200 + marked trails ranging from green groomers to blue cruisers and gnarly blacks, plus alpine bowls, chutes glades and steeps, everyone- from families to racers, will gorge delightedly on these mighty twin peaks. On top of that there’s the dramatic mountain scenery, a record breaking high-speed integrated lift system and chilled Canadian vibes, which help to consistently place Whistler in the number 1 spot for Ski Resorts in North America.

In 2010 Whistler hosted the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, which brought in millions of dollars’ worth of expansion and improvements to the town and slopes. With tonnes of great restaurants, lively bars, spas, and everything from scenic helicopter rides to a buzzing live music scene, Whistler ticks all the boxes. The location is also prime: 2 hours from Vancouver and 4 from Seattle, so it’s no surprise that Whistler gets madly busy, especially at weekends and during the holidays.
