Whistler Blackcomb Highlights
Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort
An icon, Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort is the place to be. A true force of nature, this resort has all. Diverse skiable terrain, a buzzing pedestrian-only village, jaw-dropping views, Olympic worthy amenities and a reliable 36 ft (11 m) or more of annual snowfall are just a few of the highlights that make these twin mountains one of the most popular ski resorts in the world.
A combination of two peaks – Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, this rugged West Coast resort delivers endless ski opportunities that will have you busy for days on end. In fact, this resort is so cutting-edge; it played host to the 2010 Winter Olympics to some of the events! To this day, you can even ski or ride with an Olympian!
Across 8,171 acres (3,307 hectares), you will find over 200 runs, 5020 feet (1530 m) of vertical, 16 powder-filled alpine bowls, three glaciers and five terrain parks. There are even various styles of ski and boarding to get lost in! For those looking for a challenge, heli-skiing, backcountry and diamond runs add to the appeal of this resort.
Breaking down the 200+ runs, you’ll find 18% is for beginners, 55% is for intermediate and 27% is for expert. While it may seem like a lot of the mountain is for intermediate level and above, less confident skiers have nothing to worry about; there are gentle runs and even dedicated snow schools on either mountain.
In addition to the staggering amount of skiing, it offers a great selection of on-mountain dining for those who need a break in between the slopes, plus two villages to explore once you’ve had your fill of the snow! Next time you plan on visiting Canada, make sure you lock in the time to stay at this award-winning resort.

Home to the longest unsupported lift span in the world, let us introduce you to the resort’s state-of-the-art lift system – The Peak2Peak Gondola. The lift itself is a must-do highlight when visiting Whistler.
Not only does it provide mountain jumping across the resort with ease, but for the non-skiers, it delivers a breath-taking experience. Spanning across 4km (1.9 miles) between Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain, it is the best way to see the mountains and shared alpine forests.
The world’s highest lift of its kind, you will ascend from the treetops, enjoying a 360-degree view of Whistler village, taking in the lakes, glaciers, forests and mountain peaks. For an exclusive bird’s-eye view of the forest, you can even ride the special glass-bottom gondola. This is an excellent experience for the whole family!
