Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler is considered to be one of the best mountain resorts in the world!  From perfectly groomed cruising runs to challenging mogul fields, there is skiing and riding to suit every level.  The ski area offers world renowned terrain parks, half pipes, steep chutes and exciting tree skiing and with the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola connecting Whistler and Blackcomb in just 11 minutes, it is so easy to make the most of both mountains.  New for the 2018-19 season, Whistler is investing a further $66 million towards chairlift and gondola upgrades ready for the start of the season to allow quicker and smoother overall mountain access.  This includes a new gondola on Blackcomb mountain which will provide much easier access to this part of the resort and will also easily connect to the PEAK2PEAK for access to the Whistler side.  Whistler has a large variety of kids ski programs, along with plenty of fun areas on the mountain for the entire family to explore such as the Children’s Adventure Park, the Tree Fort and the Family Zone.  Opportunities for family time include ice skating, tubing, zip lining, snowmobiling, sleigh rides, and more.  The pedestrian village in Whistler offers over 100 shops, lots of great restaurants and plenty of bars and nightclubs.  Every Sunday night a ‘Welcome To The Resort’ is held, the highlight being a Fire and Ice show.  Be sure to head down to Whistler Creekside and check out Dusty’s Bar & BBQ, where the ribs are second to none!  Whistler continues to lead the way as a premier international snow resort.
