ALLTRACKS Canada courses take place at Whistler Blackcomb.

Whistler is at the epicentre of the modern skiing and snowboarding movement and offers the best combination of terrain size and huge snowfall to be found anywhere. Whistler is also renowned for it’s vibrant mountain culture so you will not be disappointed by the off-slope options either. There are countless things to do in and around the resort and multiple events to attend throughout the Whistler ski season.

When it comes to quality of service, the benefits of operating exclusively at only a handful of resorts are obvious, but we always knew they had to be very special places. Whistler, along with Verbier & Val d’Isere, delivers and more! If you’re looking for a ski or snowboard trip of a lifetime, we hope it’s with ALLTRACKS.


With almost 40 feet of average annual snowfall, Whistler blows all but a handful of world resorts out of the water for reliable skiing and snowboarding conditions.

In Whistler, it snows big. With more and more people wanting to improve their deep snow technique and enjoy the pleasure of powder riding, Whistler is the ideal resort.

Located in the mighty Coast Mountains that stretch along British Columbia and Alaska, Whistler is the first major resort to get hit by the prevailing Pacific storms, generally bringing the most intense snow and deepest powder days. We can get as geeky as you like about snowfall, so if you want to discuss further, please get in touch and we’d love to talk to you about it.


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.

Whistler village is an energetic and friendly place.

Unlike many Canadian resorts, Whistler village is right at the base of the ski area and not a long bus ride away, making for a fantastic ski resort atmosphere.

It is not a resort that shuts down outside the ski season and is home to thriving permanent community of skiers, snowboarders and others who love life in the mountains.

This is an especially important consideration for people considering a longer course as you really do feel part of the wider community and enjoy the benefits and facilities that come with that.

There are plenty of things to do in Whistler, as it is home to Canada’s best après ski with a diverse collection of mountain stores, cafes and restaurants, a cinema, theatre, gyms, climbing centre and much more.

There are countless exciting events that happen in Whistler throughout the season that really do add to the overall enjoyment of your experience.

Highlights include the annual Whistler Film Festival, the Arc’teryx Deep Winter Photography Competition and the World Ski & Snowboard Festival. We look forward to sharing these with you.

Accommodation in Whistler

Your home for the course

During your time in Whistler we want you to have a comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Alltracks provides a range of accommodation for our courses which you will share with other guests. We also offer bespoke packages where we can arrange private accommodation if you wish, or you can book the training course without accommodation at a lower price.

For the majority of our courses, we offer three different levels/prices of accommodation.

All other aspects of the course remain the same but this allows us to offer the comfort and convenience of very central, high quality accommodation close to the ski lifts and village amenities but also more affordable to people happy to be in more basic hostel style accommodation.

Accommodation Options

Higher Range Option: Tantalus Lodge

ALLTRACKS has numerous condos in the Tantalus lodge. The lodge is extremely well located and a short walk to the main village centre and major lifts so no need to use a bus during your course. The communal facilities consist of a swimming pool, hot tub and sauna. The condos are generally a mix of twin and single rooms. The single rooms are double en suite rooms and there is a second bathroom too. Unlike a regular hotel, all the Tantalus condos have a full kitchen, dining area and living room for socialising.

You can discover more about the Tantalus Lodge here:

Least Expensive Option: Whistler HI Youth Hostel

The Whistler HI is a very well run youth hostel with great facilities including an inexpensive cafe, comprehensive kitchen and a great sociable base for a course. We take our own rooms here so you will only share with other Alltracks guests in private 4 person rooms.

You can discover more about the HI Whistler Hostel’s facilities and location here on the link below. The Whistler HI is a bus ride to the lifts/village centre.

Mid Range Option: Upper Village & Village North Condos and Chalets

On some of our courses we have a mid range price option. This consists of a number of chalets and condos around Whistler – in either the Upper Village or Village North, both of which are convenient locations. These are comfortable places to stay and typically have a mixture of room types/sizes. All have homely sitting rooms and kitchens.

WBSSU Internship Course Accommodation

Internship Students stay in Whistler Housing run by the resort itself for their staff. This is more basic, but it is functional, sociable and well located.
