There are many very good reasons to choose Whistler for your winter vacation. The first is the consistently reliable snow conditions with an average snowfall of 11.64 metres (over 38.2 ft!). The second is that Whistler Blackcomb has more skiable terrain than any other resort in North America with 200+ trails for all levels of skiers and boarders. The third is the that coming for winter 2018/19 are faster lifts and a new Gondola…a whopping $66-million investment into upgrades to get you up and around the mountain in style!
On Whistler, a new six-person Emerald Express chair will make life in the Family Ski Zone easier, while a high-speed, four-person Catskinner chair adds laps to your day on Blackcomb. Access to this mountain will also be faster, warm and dry, as well. A 10-person gondola, from the Upper Village to the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola connection, will open the first fully-sheltered route up Blackcomb year-round. If you are sightseeing in winter or climbing the Ascent Trails in summer there will now be a covered cabin for the ride down. The new chairlifts are fully operational and ready for opening day. The 10 Person gondola will open 14 December.
Consistently rated one of the top ski resorts in North America, Whistler and Blackcomb are two side-by-side mountains stretching over 8,171 acres of terrain, a mile-high vertical of 1,609m/5,280ft, 200 marked runs, 37 lifts, 16 alpine bowls and 3 glaciers. Connecting the two mountains is the spectacular Guinness World Record holding PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. View and download the mountain trail map here.
