Whistler Blackcomb boasts some 8100 acres of resort terrain, and has access to some of the most exciting backcountry skiing in Canada, which provides limitless options – an important consideration when taking an extended course.
The scale of terrain only tells half the story. The sheer diversity is what really sets Whistler apart. From world class tree riding, huge open powder bowls, steep couloirs, long pistes, glaciers and world class freestyle facilities – Whistler has it all.
The ski area is made up of two distinct mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, linked by the mighty Peak2Peak Gondola. As they say in Whistler, “it’s awesome squared”.
Both mountains offer a mile of vertical drop making for long runs through diverse terrain. The upper half of both mountains is generally open, alpine terrain with a combination of powder bowls, chutes, wide groomers and moguls as well as amazing scenery.
Lower down, you hit some of the best and extensive tree skiing anywhere on Earth. When it’s dumping snow, the trees on the lower half of the mountains provide shelter, visibility and keep the snow in great condition protected from the sun and wind.
When the weather calms, the upper alpine terrain offers a great contrast with fantastic open bowls and spectacular vistas.
