Owner description: Whistler Blackcomb is a four-season resort located in Canada’s Coast Mountains north of Vancouver. Proudly holding the title of the largest ski resort in North America, Whistler Blackcomb offers 8171 acres of terrain for skiers and riders of all ability levels. With an average annual snowfall of over 10 metres, the resort enjoys a long winter season that stretches into late May. Glacier skiing on the upper reaches of Blackcomb Mountain is even possible during summer months! A true four-season resort, guests enjoy some of the world’s best mountain biking & alpine hiking during summer months. Events such as the Crankworx mountain biking festival and activities such as ziplining and wildlife tours make a summer visit to the resort a must. At Whistler Blackcomb, passion for the outdoors runs year-round.

stayed here for a few days in march, having skied all of over the world I finally made it to Whistler. I think that whistler at best is good, not amazing. The snow was good, but it rained in the village and below 1000m the snow was bad. The terrain is varied, lots of stuff for everyone to do, the alpine bowls are fun with enough snow. The resort might be the best in North America but its now where near anything in Europe in terms of terrain, lift infrastructure or backcountry.

Now Whistler may not have the village ambiance of Klosters but the variety of runs and lifts is phenomenol. While either mountain will keep you entranced for days, be sure to take at least one ride on the peak-to-peak lift for both the views and the sensation.

Some of the best skiing we have ever had. The variety of terrain is terrific. Multiple areas above the tree line that I felt were better then what Vail has to offer. We spent equal time on both Whistler and Blackcomb and I could not choose between them. The upper lift areas on both mountains are terrific.

It is fun to ski where the base is about 2100' and the peak is about 7400'. No need to acclimate to elevation.

You need to make sure to ski the "Peak to Creek" run. 3.4 miles long and a mile vertical drop. They claim it is the longest intermediate run in North America. I was expecting some dead/flat spots on a run that long, but there were none.

Only caution is that if it is hard at the base, you will have fog and heavy snow at elevation. Prepare to get wet and have limited visibility. About half of our days were clear and sunny, with spectacular views, and half were rain/snow.

I would love to come back
