Whistler Canada is the largest ski resort in North America and the biggest ski area in the world outside of Europe. Whistler Blackcomb ski resort consists of the interconnected Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain, and it has an incredible 8,171 acres of terrain, a huge vertical drop of 7,165 ft., over 200 marked trails blanketed by 460" of snow each year, and plenty of off-piste opportunities. The Whistler ski resort is so big that instead of having a trail map, they have an atlas!
The skiing and snowboarding terrain varies incredibly from gentle slopes and wide groomed cruisers to tree skiing, steep alpine bowls, couloirs and terrain parks. No other resort offers so much variety. Whistler Resort is suitable for all types of skiers and snowboarders, from first-timers to extreme riders who want to ride hair-raising steeps.
From the top: Burnt Stew Trail is labeled the most beautiful green run in the country. From Whistler head down the cat road to the top of the Harmony 6 Express and onto Burnt Stew Trail to enjoy mellow terrain in a true alpine environment.
Mid-Mountain: Emerald Express, surrounded by green classics like Ego Bowl, is the as-peaceful as it sounds Green Acres, Upper and Lower Whiskey Jack and Marmot which gives you the option of heading up the Harmony Chair, or sidewinding back to the Emerald. Big Red Express side offers Papoose and Bear Cub , and Pony Trail, the oldest run on Whistler , named because it was the route packhorses would use to ascend the mountain during construction in 1965. It’s mellow but watch out for it’s one perfect pitch near the end .
Lower Mountain: There’s no super easy way to get to Whistler Creekside so if you end up on that side of the mountain just take Expressway back over to the Village side and link up with Lower Olympic Run. Coming from Harmony and Emerald chairs, there can be great snow left on Upper Fantastic and It Happens, even later in the day.
