RESORT DESCRIPTION:
Side by side, Whistler and Blackcomb mountains represent over 8,000 acres of skiable terrain, making Whistler Blackcomb the largest ski area in North America. The world-record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola now connects the incredible high alpine of both mountains traveling 2.7 miles in just 11 minutes. Add a pedestrian village–conveniently located at the base of both mountains, with legendary nightlife–and you can see why Whistler Blackcomb is consistently rated North America’s No. 1 mountain resort.

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS:

• 12/1-12/5: Whistler Film Festival
• January 2011: Deep Winter Photo Challenge Presented by Arc’Teryx
• 4/15-4/24: TELUS World Ski & Snowboard Festival

TERRAIN BREAKDOWN:

Whistler Blackcomb has something for everyone with 16 alpine bowls, five parks, three glaciers and 200-plus marked trails. With 8,171 acres of terrain (20-percent beginner, 55-percent intermediate and 25-percent advanced) Whistler Blackcomb offers more run options than anywhere else in North America. And there are 38 lifts to help access it. Fast.

POWDER PERSPECTIVE:

Either Blackcomb or Whistler alone could vie for the best mountain in the U.S. if it were a little farther south. Together, they make up North America’s premier destination resort. One of the best parks in the world, combined with some of the best inbounds terrain in North America and an open-gate policy, make Whistler Blackcomb a must on every skier’s bucket list.
