I went skiing in Whistler over the US Thanksgiving holiday which just so happens to be their traditional opening weekend. Whistler used to be a frequent stop when I lived in Washington State but have not been back since the Olympics where held in Vancouver. It has changed significantly for better or worse. Whistler is one of the largest and... More

The landscape at Whistler, encompassing the two areas of Whistler and Blackcomb, is absolutely gorgeous. The gondola and slopes at Whistler tend to be more crowded, so for a less hectic day I'd head over to Blackcomb, where we found the snow conditions to be slightly better, the runs much less populated, and the view without compare! We just returned... More

I usually go out to Colorado to Snowboard but was able to make it out to Whistler this year. It is a great place and plenty of runs for all skill levels.

Absolutely stunning!!! I recently skied in French (Mont Blanc) and Swiss (Leukerbad) Alps and they just didn't compare to the skiing in Whistler. I grew up in the area and never realized how fortunate I was to have Whistler practically in my backyard. I will definitely ski more after my last experience. Wide, smooth runs that go on FOREVER, and... More

The snow is not wonderful yet but the parts of the mountain open, are wonderful. No crowds yet which is great. On a sunny day it must be spectacular. First aid propel are great and helped me when I got knocked out and had a concussion.

We were novice skiers but found the huge amount of green runs amazing and un-daunting for us. All the staff from top to bottom are amazingly friendly and eager to help! We will be back for sure!

200+ trails, 17 on mountain restaurants, 37 lifts ? Oh yeah - and an overall snowfall average of more than 38 feet? See you there!

Whistler Blackcomb is a fantastic set of mountains almost any time of year.. but going this early in the year is a bit dicey. There was probably the least snow I have ever skied on , the higher slopes were not open yet, and it was rainy below . And yet, it was still worth going. Friday was really great... More

First, Whistler is by far the largest ski resort in North America (Vail comes in a distant second) in terms of acreage and lifts. After 20 years, I’m still surprised to discover a trail or run I that I’ve haven’t fully experienced. If you’re comparing it to the European resorts, Whistler’s 39 lifts may seem like a joke compared with... More

I wasn't planning to come to Whistler. It was a last minute decision but I'm glad I made it. I was able to experience a snowfall for the first time ever up at the very peak. It was cold and windy but spectacular! I was amazed by the amount of snow falling from the sky. The food court area has... More
