Whistler Blackcomb is one of the best known ski resorts in the world, made up of two previously independent resorts, Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain. The now combined resort of Whistler Blackcomb has a massive 8,100 acres area.
Whistler is a great place to visit on holiday and its popularity makes it a hive of activity year round. Its size, infrastructure and popularity equals some of the larger European resorts, and although you may have to beat the crowds to get fresh lines a little more than you would in the rest of Canada, the all round experience is still amazing.
Whistler Blackcomb has over 12 alpine bowls to choose from; 8,100 acres of terrain; 200 marked trails and 33 lifts, making it one of the largest places in the world to ski. The massive snowfall makes it an ideal location for those keen on experiencing "West Coast powder" unlike any snow found in Europe.
The terrain is varied and challenging, which makes it perfect for coaching; with groomed pistes for practising instructor drills and more challenging areas of gladded trees and alpine powder bowls for concentrating on your off piste technique.
Being a truly international resort, Whistler Blackcomb attracts skiers and snowboarders from all around the world. With over 200 shops there is plenty to distract you whilst you are off the mountain; on the food side the 90 plus restaurants on and off the mountain offer every type of food imaginable.
As far as après ski is concerned Whistler Blackcomb has got all needs catered for, be dancing on tables at Merlin's, relaxing with the locals at Dusty's or partying the night away at Tommy Africa's. Whistler is a town full of energy but at the same time manages to retain a friendly atmosphere. If you want a total break from skiing or snowboarding, the options are endless.
We look forward to speaking with you.
