Whistler Blackcomb offers the largest skiing in Canada, 8,100 acres with 38
lifts and 3 glaciers between the two interconnected mountains. Along with all
that top skiing from steep and deep to beautiful trails from above to below tree
line. They say it’s always snowing somewhere on Whistler or Blackcomb. While
they get crazy Pac North West weather, read: fog, these mountains also get tons
of snow on the inimitable terrain. Both mountains have wild steeps, 2,200 of the
8,000-acres are expert and extreme. Blackcomb has wild steeps, like Saudan
Couloir and Spanky’s Ladder, to West and Whistler Bowl on Whistler’s side.
There’s also Whistler Heli-skiing with a 400,000-acre tenure.
Whistler Village warrants serious après ski time and respect. It’s a ski city of
offering from some of the best après ski bars on the planet, Girabaldi Lift Co
and Steeps Grill and Bar for example right at the base of the slopes and the
gondola. For lodging, Whistler has tons of condos, and top brand hotels.
Whistler Village was designed by Intrawest, so its swank and well-planned with
heated pedestrian plazas, underground parking, and great views of the
your pick from Whistler’s Fairmont, Four Seasons, Pan Pacific, Westin or Hilton;
they all earn 5-stars as swank ski properties with ski concierge, and spas.
Whistler is an Olympic caliber resort, hosting the 2010 Winter Games, with gold medal lodging and dining. It’s
also received fame and acclaim during Bravo’s TV series Après Ski in 2016, a
reality show with very little skiing footage except an occasional clip featuring
Lindsey Dyer, but mostly drama and late night partying in Whistler village.
Whistler does get busy, read: 2 million skier visits, but the terrain is absolutely epic!
