Ski Whistler Blackcomb - Customize your Whistler Blackcomb ski vacations with Ski.com

Whistler Blackcomb is in a class all its own. With two huge mountains that converge at one base village. With its cosmopolitan amenities, over 8,000 skiable acres, ample snowfall and awesome alpine scenery, Whistler Blackcomb tops the list as an international favorite. This huge resort offers everything from the wide-open bowls on Blackcomb to the five-mile swoop down Whistler – one of the longest in North America. Whistler Village offers plenty of restaurants, nightclubs, bars and international ambiance to keep you entertained long after the lifts close.

Your Whistler Blackcomb Ski Vacation

Justifiably ranked at the top among major ski resorts, Whistler Blackcomb resort offers more of everything than any other ski resort on the continent. Ski Whistler and explore an incredible 8,100 acres of skiable terrain on the two mountains, a huge 5,280 vertical drop, 12 high-speed quads, 3 gondolas and the most slopeside lodging. Whistler lodging accommodations range from quaint Boutique Hotels, to Slopeside Luxury home and hotels, with several Spa options as well!

Whistler skiing is amazing.

On your Whistler ski vacation you can enjoy the central village, too, with its distinctive and reminiscent feeling of the best European ski resorts. Whistler also offers cosmopolitan shops and restaurants which cluster around charming plazas and along walkways designed for strolling.

Feb 2017 trip

My first time but for some of the group have visited before. We caught the perfect weather. Fresh 18 in+ for our first day as they started opening the bowls around 10 am- skied until late. Little congested at the Whistler and Blackcomb gondolas to start the day - heard the Creekside gondola line was an hour long after 9am- glad I didn't go there. The snow was good for the whole trip- picked up more through our stay. Had a blue bird day which was the day we booked a Powder Mountain Catskiing- great guides!

5 days of great skiing

We spent 5 days of skiing on two huge mountains; plenty of different terrain to ski. Lifts at the bottom were busy on the powder days, but the top has plenty of upload capacity. I wish they had more capacity from the bottom to mid-mountain.

WOW!!!

Ive been in many places like Colorado, California, La Toscana (It) or Innsburk (Aus)

This is the best Ski resort ive visited until now.
It is a little bit expensive, but Worth every penny it costs.

whistler/blackcomb

When can I come back? Flawless flight, shuttle transportation, hotel stay, ski experience. Accommodations were perfect. Great breakfast buffet at the Fairmont: the best actually. Highly recommend Extremely Canadian - skied double blacks with experts. Would not have truly experienced Whistler/Blackcomb without them. Met super nice locals who love their town. Combination of blue skies, new snow, fresh tracks, and bumps. Thank you very much.

it was a vacation to remember - and come back too!

The resort was awesome; first day weather was a challenge - rain on base; fog in middle and blowing snow on top. Day 2 was a "blue Bird" day - 6" new snow; blue sky and sun. Perfect day.

Spring Break @ Whistler

Second trip to Whistler. Went in Jan. 2014 then again Mid March 2016. Plenty of snow mid-level to the peak, but conditions below mid level were poor. If you are not advanced skill level, getting to the bottom each day was tough work. Short lift lines, beautiful scenery. The on-mountain restaurants need a MUCH better system for seating and handling mid day crowds. Near fights each day with people fighting over tables and saving spaces. Has to be a better way, maybe a seating or host system. Village was great, good sales on end of season merchandise. Friendly staff.

When you hit it right, Whistler is absolutely the best ski resort in the world.  I have been to Europe, I have been to South America and I live in Colorado.  We received 40 plus inches in the week I was there in March.  It was in centimeters so I may be underestimating it a little.  All I know is that it was deep everywhere. I snowboarded the first day with our excellent guide, Steve,  who works with the mountain.  He took us on some excellent blue runs in the morning on the Whistler side with our group of 9.  We then flew on the Peak to Peak gondola to the Blackcomb side in a matter of minutes where this used to take 2 hours or more.  Some of the group split off and we did Spanky's Ladder and another run called the Chimney were a hike of less than 10 minutes got us to untracked terrain and descents that were super steep.  Comes out to a long cat track and you have to take two lifts to get back to where you started but well worth it.  On Day 2, I switched to skiing, we had a half day with Steve and explored the mountain a little more eventually getting to Dusty's in Creekside, a hidden local's gem of a bar.  We saw lots and lots of condos and hotels in between the skiing so call me to talk more about that.  I stayed a little longer than my co-workers and that is when the snow started to fall in earnest.  On Day 3 of skiing I only went in the afternoon because the morning was rain and basically unskiable .  The afternoon it turned to snow again and we found untracked snow everywhere.  Day 4 the skies opened up and only a few inches fell at the resort so we had booked a heli trip and got the green light.  5 runs of heart stopping excitement.  This is another post...another time....Day 5 in Whistler was epic.  Another 7 inches and the Blue Sky Stormy day.  As in, blue skies into white out conditions and back and forth like that probably 3 or 4 times.  This day was better than the heli if you can believe that.  I could go on and on.  But that is how the trip ended.  We flew out of Vancouver Sunday morning.  Stayed at the Fairmont Airport hotel.  The best place to get a jump on the long security lines to get back to the states....

I stayed the 2nd part of my trip at the Coast Blackcomb.  It was a perfect hotel for some.  Budget, breakfast, ski in and out, great hot tub scene. 

Call me to book for next year!

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.
