Whistler Skiing and Snowboarding

Skiing at Whistler

Skiing at WhistlerThe ski resort consists of two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, situated side by side and anchored by the "village" at their base. Combined, they cover a skiable terrain of 8,171 acres serviced by 38 lifts and rising 5,280 feet above the valley floor.

Whistler Snowboarding

Whistler SnowboardingNot only do we have more terrain, we have different snow conditions to make it really interesting. Fortunately, this combination also attracts some of the best instructors on the planet. While you're here, you should take advantage of their knowledge and take a lesson.

Whistler Mountain Ski Area

Whistler Mountain Ski AreaLargest ski area on the continent, with 7,071 acres of skiable terrain, more than 200 trails and 12 massive alpine bowls, including three glaciers.

Thirteen alpine bowls, three glaciers and more than 200 marked runs make Whistler ski resort a skiing and snowboarding mecca.


Whistler Peak to Peak Gondola

Whistler Peak to Peak GondolaIn 2009 the tops of Whistler and Blackcomb were connected by the record breaking "Peak 2 Peak Gondola". The first of it's kind in a North American resort, the "peak to peak" gondola spans 4.4 kilometres and hangs 1,427 feet off the ground at the middle of the span; making the trip in 11 minutes.

There has obviously been a lot of hype about the new lift, and as a local, I was a bit skeptical of it's usefulness, but you know what? It is really very cool, and has changed the way I ski the mountains. You couldn't honestly ski both mountains in the same day before, they're just too big. Now it only takes 11 minutes to go from the top of one mountain to the other, meaning on powder days you can catch the "glacier chair" open on Blackcomb, cross over to Whistler for the "peak chair" open and get the best of both.

Whistler Ski Lifts

Fast access to the alpine from five separate mountain bases, all five minutes from each other and all equipped with high-speed lifts:
15 high-speed lifts (12 quad chairs and three gondolas) in a total system of 33 - the most extensive high-speed lift system in the world.
