Within British Columbia’s glacial climate and scenic beauty resides Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. The impressive 8,171 acres of accessible terrain is serviced by 37 lifts and the longest continuous lift system on the globe, PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, which connects skiers and riders from Whistler to Blackcomb Mountains.

Holding the title of North America’s largest ski resort, these two colossal mountains offer more than 200 marked trails that include in-bounds backcountry, wide-open glaciers, powder-filled bowls, secluded glades and perfectly groomed trails. Freestylers will find six terrain parks that accommodate beginners to elite athletes, including a 22’ superpipe. Averaging 462 inches of snowfall each year, there’s something for everyone at Whistler Blackcomb.

Whistler Blackcomb Resort is a must-ski destination and has terrain to suit any ability level. The resort has ski and snowboard schools that have classes for beginners, intermediates, and even advanced skiers.

Beginner terrain options are abundant and include a beginner’s only area located at Olympic Station containing slow zones, short lifts, and magic carpets aimed at giving first timers an adequate place to learn. More experienced beginners and intermediates have an almost endless quantity of blue trails to explore. 

Whistler Blackcomb is also a great family resort with children’s adventure parks, mini-terrain parks and a tree fort playground. The resort is a great destination for families in thanks to terrain that allows for beginners and more experienced skiers to stay within the same region of the mountain.

Whistler was originally conceived as part of a bid to host the 1968 Winter Olympics. Although the bid was ultimately unsuccessful, construction began and the resort opened in 1966. After years of expansions and a merger with Blackcomb Mountain, Whistler was awarded the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in association with Vancouver.
