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 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.

  • Oct 13, 2019: “What a beautiful place from the village to the mountains. A trip up the mountain in the gondola is a must to see the full majesty of the environment. ” 0
  • Oct 6, 2019: “First of all, the drive from Vancouver to Whistler is stunning. At the same time, we went over Labor Day weekend and the traffic could get pretty backed up (never knew Canada celebrates Labor Day just as we do in the U.S.). Whistler itself has a fun vibe, w/ lots to do. Whistler Village (at base of the main ski area) is a bit commercialized, but we enjoyed walking around - and we also enjoyed exploring the surrounding areas that were less commercialized (including the town of Whistler and local parks). Whistler Village reminded me of Vail CO if you've ever been there. A self-contained modern day "town center" with limited vehicle access. Nice for walking around. We later learned it was designed by the same company that designed Vail. We were there for a wedding, really enjoyed our stay at Legends. The wedding was at the top of Whistler Mountain and the gondola ride up was a highlight (awesome views, wildlife below - we saw several black bears). Too early for skiing on Labor Day, but the slopes looked fantastic and we would seriously consider going back.” 1
  • Oct 4, 2019: “A fantastic way to see whistler and surrounding areas. During the autumn season only this gondola was working weekday but the weekends the peak to peak and whistler gondola work to give more options .” 2
