Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort

North America’s largest ski resort has attractions for athletes and amateurs, including zip line and bear tours in summer and snowmobile and sleigh rides in winter.

Ski and slide, or ride and hike during an active mountain stay in one of the most popular ski resorts in Canada. Whistler Blackcomb is the most extensive ski resort in North America, covering over 8,100 acres (3,280 hectares) and containing 16 alpine bowls, over 200 trails and three glaciers. Go skiing, snowboarding or tubing on the slopes in winter. In summer, enjoy the fresh mountain air while cycling or hiking.

Blackcomb was the first Olympic-style resort built on Whistler Mountain and opened in the 1960s, but missed out on hosting the following Winter Olympics. It continued to expand and merged with the Blackcomb Peak ski resort in 1997. The Olympic dream finally came true when Whistler was a venue of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. These days, more than 2 million people visit annually.

Use the many lifts and Peak 2 Peak Gondola to get to the slopes, or be daring and sign up for Heli Skiing. Book a snowmobile tour to see the backcountry. The tube park is a great ride for children of over 3 years of age, but they have to be at least 36 inches (91 centimeters) tall to use it. Improve your skills by taking a private or group lesson, which require pre-booking.

After most of the snow has melted, you can still ride the gondola and walk or bike the multiple alpine trails. Join a guided bear-viewing tour to see the local wildlife and hear the whistle of the hoary marmot. Adventure seekers can rent ATVs, soar down zip lines and explore glaciers.

Located just 78 miles (125 kilometers) north of Vancouver, it’s easy to drive to Whistler Blackcomb Resort. There is free parking, but you pay for spots closer to the lifts. Make sure you bring snow chains for your tires, which is required by law in winter. You can also take the bus or train from Vancouver to fully enjoy the scenic trip. Download trail maps by visiting the resort’s official website.

Pull up your snow pants, slip into your ski gloves, strap on your boots, and hit the slopes at Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort. Home to the largest ski resort in North America, Whistler Ski Resort boasts two adjacent mountains offering more than 8,000 acres of terrain with over 200 marked runs, three glaciers, and 16 alpine bowls.  

During the summer months, the resorts is a top spot for mountain biking and hiking enthusiasts, while the winter months invite skiers, snowboarders, and tubers alike to indulge in the powdery paradise. Whether you’re a black diamond trail whiz, backcountry adventurer, or a bunny slope novice, there’s a spot for you on the mountains. Whistler ski resort also features ski school for those new to winter sports. Meanwhile, if slipping and sliding down the mountain is more your style, cruise the tubing slopes at the tube park on Blackcomb Mountain.  

When you feel snowed over at work, sneak away to this retreat in BC for an unforgettable Whistler skiing and riding adventure. Whistler ski vacations spoil you with the opportunity to take a ride on Peak 2 Peak featuring the world’s largest continuous lift system and the chance to tear up the terrain parks with more than 150 features and 40 plus jumps. Book Whistler ski vacation packages to spend your winter getaway shredding and carving on the Olympic-style resort. You can score the cheapest deals and lowest prices on lift tickets, gear rentals, and ski accommodations when you reserve Whistler ski packages.
