Con 8,171 hectáreas esquiables, las vacaciones de ski en Whistler le ofrecen casi el 54 por ciento más de ski que el segundo resort de mayor tamaño: Vail. Y a pesar de su magnitud, es muy fácil de recorrer, gracias a Peak 2 Peak Gondola que une Whistler y Blackcomb Mountain por medio del mayor teleférico sin soporte del mundo. Whistler ofrece la mayor capacidad cuesta arriba y recibe a casi 2 millones de visitantes al año. Sus tres pueblos de estilo tirolés en el área de la base, ofrecen a sus huéspedes una amplia gama de opciones en cuanto a restaurantes, hospedaje, bares après-ski, tiendas y lugares de moda para visitar durante la noche que se adaptan a todas las preferencias vacacionales de ski. En comparación con otros resorts famosos  en las montañas rocallosas de Norte América,  llegar a Whistler Blackcomb es muy fácil desde cualquier parte del mundo, gracias a su cercanía con el Aeropuerto Internacional de Vancouver.

Los esquiadores intermedios se sentirán en el paraíso en Whistler Blackcomb, ya que disfrutarán de más del 55 por ciento de este enorme terreno, desde la cima de Whistler Mountain.

Por supuesto que Whistler es conocido como una montaña agresiva con muchas opciones de terreno experto.

Great Skiing and Lots of activites

White Paradise

The skiing is fantastic with long runs and absolutely gorgeous mountain views all around. The runs are long and varied and the snow mid mountain and above was extraordinary. The speed and distance of the lifts do a great job of getting people up the mountain without a long wait. Plenty of choices for lunch or a midday drink and if you don't feel like dealing with the slushy snow (we were there in March) you can download from mid mountain and not burn your legs out. Absolutely love this mountain and will definitely be back!

Varied Ski experience

Very large ski area, snowed every day but would rain at the base/hotel. They have a very good app that would let you know the waits at the lifts and snow condition. Blackcomb is less crowded. Overall a great mountain with an extensive list of restaurants / night life. Best part is Canadian dollar is only 75 cents!

Big, Big mountain, Great village for foodies, Iffy weather

Whistler is a well planned, food oriented community. The skiing was excellent when you could see. The slopes were very well marked, and service on the mountain was very good.

Nice People/Nice Place

Whistler Blackcomb is a great location if you are looking for a big mountain. With two mountains to choose from one can get a days skiing in without repeating any runs. We booked months in advance so were committed to go but if I could have changed airline tickets (ha ha) and resort stay times I would have. Being so close to the ocean we got visited by a warm mother nature which brought the freezing level up the mountain. Otherwise stated it rained on the lower runs 3 of the 7 days we were there. That would not have been so bad but up top the alpine winds closed the upper mountain on our last day so we skied the middle as much as we could but it was a challenge due to the large lines at the one open mid mountain lift. All in all I would recommend this place but coming from Florida it is far so I think we will stay in the Colorado resorts in the future.

Interesting trip in 2011

We were actually there last week (2011) - poor ski conditions due to torrential rain for 2 days after icy conditions all week. The scenery is magnificent and the people re wonderful. Due to unpredictability of the weather I would not hurry back.

Whistler Blackcomb=Great Times

We stayed at the Legends in Creek Side and it was a very short walk to the gondola, in fact we could see the gondola from our balcony. All of the personal working at the mountains were very friendly and accommodating. I loved the terrain on the mountains. I like to ride everything from big park lines to powder filled shoots. In one day of riding we were able to find more terrain than a week worth of riding at other resorts. There are a lot of cat walks in Whistler so keep your speed up or you will be pushing a lot. Meals are not cheap on the mountain so be prepared to spend about $15.00 per person (on the low side) if you stop to eat lunch. The food was good just expensive. Over all we were very satisfied and it was worth the money we spent.

What's the hype about?

Just average, in our opinion. Very poor weather: only one day of sunshine out of 6. Most days consist of rain, heavy winds, fog, snowstorms. Seems like most people we spoke with had similar experiences. It's difficult to ski when you can't see where you're going!

Children's ski school definitely below par. Our children are intermediate and advanced intermediate skiers. Both were put into the wrong classes despite what we told them. Class sizes are too big (8). Instructors are 20-25 year olds who don't have much experience in dealing with young children. They are good skiiers but not great teachers.

The village was fun, with lots of good restaurants. But they are expensive.

The village bus system is efficient, but very crowded at peak times, standing room only. So beware if you have young children who need you to lug their stuff!

Much prefer Vail, Deer Valley, Beaver Creek....

We keep going back- and will again.

We keep going back- even after being lured away by the claims of resorts in the states that they are just as good. It is big, the village is wonderful and there is enough terrain to keep everyone happy. My only complaint is that it is a long trip from the east coast- especially with the security issues in the airports over the holidays.

The best village in Ski Country!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Whistler in February, even though we would have liked more powder. But the skiing on Blackcomb Glacier and some other great runs on the 2 mountains were excellent. The new Peak to Peak gondola totally changed our ski experience there - so much terrain to access so easily. We also went to a Bobsleigh championship at the new "Sliding Centre". The Village truly is the liveliest and best planned that we have seen in Ski Country! Shops, restaurants, awesome apres ski scene, young people, families, older couples, all were having a great time. Definitely worth the trip. We were also glad that we decided to spend a night in Vancouver, beautiful town.

The best of all worlds

Every year, we pick one resort to go skiing at. In 2008, we chose Whistler/Blackcomb. Why? One, we wanted to get there before the Olympics had occurred, so we wouldn't have to be worried about rising prices. Second, the exchange rate worked out well enough that it was economical.

We spent 6 days at the resort. The accommodations were second to none. Our room had a queen bed, with a pull down full bed, a dining area, kitchenette, fireplace, and decent sized bathroom, as well as a closet to place our skis at the end of the day. Our room also had a washer and dryer, which came in handy after a full day skiing and having ski coats and pants that were damp.

The off-slope activities were fun. Both my husband and I went on the zipline. He did the Eagle, I did the Bear. It was a lot of fun and offered a good respite from the skiing we had been doing.

While relaxing in one of the cafeterias, we were approached to participate in a survey. We did so, signed up to hear a timeshare presentation, and were able to get certificates for one of the restaurants.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience and we hope to go back after the Olympics to see what all has changed.

A note - there were kids of all ages here, so it's definitely worth it for families to go. They have an excellent system set up where you can put the kids in "daycare" and they have an instructor who skis with them. We rode many lifts with the instructors and kids and I was amazed at how much fun the kids were having and the difficulty of runs they were able to do!

Whistler is one of those resorts that offers great skiing and a vibrant town full of restaurants, shopping and nightlife.  It is a huge mountain with great skiing for all levels.  The beginner area is located mid-mountain, which means new skiers get to take the gondola up instead of just being at the base.  There is plenty of wide open intermediate terrain, and there's great expert terrain that you can hike to or find right on the mountain.  Town has so much to choose from: everything from casual dining to sushi to fine dining.  They also have lots of original shops that you won't find anywhere else and some more well known shops also.

You can also choose from many additional activities like zip-lining, spa trips and heli-skiing.
