Whistler Canada, located just north of Vancouver, is the largest ski resort in North America. Whistler Blackcomb ski resort consists of the interconnected Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain, each a destination in their own right. It has an incredible combined 8,171 acres of terrain. The Mountain looms over the pedestrian only European Style Village which hosted the Olympics in 2010. You will find trendy boutiques, retail shops, a grocery store, coffee shops, a wide variety of world class restaurants, and numerous Apres Ski hot spots. Its a bit shocking that it only ranks 6th in Ski Magazine's 2020 rankings.
It's not hyperbole to say that Whistler Blackcomb is a behemoth with 8,171 acres and a huge vertical drop of 7,165 ft. with 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, a glacier, 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. You'll never forget the beauty of a blue bird day at Whistler!
