Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler Blackcomb is considered one of North America’s premier mountain resorts—for good reason. A short, scenic 125-kilometre (78-mile) drive from Vancouver, this resort offers exceptional hospitality, a diverse cultural scene, and dramatic scenery. Two mountains, connected by the record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, offer more than 200 marked runs, 16 alpine bowls, and three glaciers. Epic skiing, combined with a glamorous après scene and endless off-mountain activities, make this an unforgettable ski vacation.

  • Dec 17, 2018: “Ok so if you're like me you probably do tonnes of research when travelling and especially for a ski/boarding trip. Most (and by most I mean 90% plus) sites I visited ranked Whistler Blackcomb as THE must visit resort and often as the #1 best resort in the world. Digging further I found lots of talk about the takeover by Vail and the talk of "it's just not the same". Don't let this put you off, I've been before and after the Vail takeover and still think it lives up to the hype. This might have something to do with the great offers Vail have to draw international travellers in and from a local's point of view I might think differently. The village is amazing, so much on offer, loads of food, drink, shops and more. Yes some say it's pricey but that depends on where else you normally ski. I live in Australia and the prices are on par but we don't get the snow Whistler Blackcomb does, don't have the massive skiable area, & the village is a fraction of the size. If you're looking to save a dollar it pays to do the food shopping in Squamish, you can either get a bus or drive in about 35mins. Buying your passes online in advance will also save you $$ and if you're looking to ski multiple mountains take a look at their edge pass (gives you discounts on multiple retail shops & food too). Feb is usually the best time to visit in out opinion, we've done Dec before for Christmas and wow was it cold! Snow wasn't that great & some days were so cold (wind chill) it wasn't worth staying out. Great atmosphere at that time of year but we prefer Feb for the snow.” 0
  • Dec 17, 2018: “First time to Whistler so glad they are part of the Epic Family. I was amazed at how big the mountain was and the variety of skiing. So fun that I booked a trip this year back with my son. So looking forward to him experiencing this amazing ski palace.” 1
  • Dec 16, 2018: “Skied for the week, took an hour in the line up to get on the gondola every day, better to wait until 10am before going out. On the last day the winds were too high so only chairs open still charged $150 but of a rip-off. Food very expensive on the mountain. Village is great lots of good restaurants Earl's pretty reasonable, 21 steps also good value.” 2
