Whistler stands as the world’s greatest combination of resort personality and skiing opportunity. Within the region of Whistler are two famous, skiable mountains that attract universal attention both individually and collectively.

The two, Blackcomb and Whistler mountain, are the first and second highest upward ascensions in North America and competed against each other not too long ago. However, connected at the base and through the unique Peak 2 Peak gondola, they have now created the most complete and comprehensive ski holiday experience.


The village itself delivers all kinds of dining and shopping experiences. Go to the Mongoli Grill and watch your food cooked in front of you, or to the Brew House where toy trains fly around the room as you eat, or indeed to any of the many other restaurants that can provide whichever cuisine you desire.

If you enjoy shopping there are countless stores to choose from, and as in Europe there is a popular après-ski culture with all different sorts of bars and clubs, many of which will remain open late into the night.

In addition to the village and the mountains themselves, there is a wide array of other activities that will make certain you are entertained for the whole trip from art galleries to backcountry ziplining!

Facilities for children

Indeed, families are well catered for with a variety of green and blue runs across the resort and 15 on-mountain dining locations. You could ride the Crystal chair on Blackcomb and enjoy freshly made waffles while you take in the spectacular views, or head to the top of Seventh Heaven for lunch over-looking the village followed by some friendly tree runs.

There are specific family skiing locations on both mountains, “enchanted forest” runs and even a Castle on Blackcomb and a tree-fort on Whistler, both equipped with climbing frames and slides. Just remember to bring some treats so that you can feed the Whiskey-Jacks birds while you are there!

Mountain info

Whistler resort has more than 8,100 acres of skiable terrain, including 700 inbound backcountry acres. Each mountain has its own merits and specialities, and yet neither is limited to a particular style of skiing and snowboarding.
Whistler mountain contains fantastic areas for beginners and / or intermediate skiers who would prefer a relaxed day, but venture out of these zones and you will find plenty of drops, chutes, gullies, glades and anything that might enter into an adventurous mind.
On the other hand Blackcomb is considered the more challenging mountain and is the steeper of the two, but that is not to say beginner and intermediate riders should steer clear because it is still very accessible for all levels with green runs still plentiful.
For the more daring skiers there is a mixture of challenging on-piste, off-piste, back country and park riding available. There is one terrain garden, and two regular terrain parks you can move on to once your freestyle has improved; the one on Blackcomb contains Large and XL kickers for those particularly advanced individuals.
You may prefer to take a left off Glacier Chair where you shall find the famed Spanky’s Ladder that after climbing will reveal a large hidden area of outstanding double black skiing. Moreover there is a massive collection of steep glades, alpine bowls, hikeable terrain, glaciers and even Olympic runs still open from 2010, the Dave Murray downhill being particularly well known.
