“Makes our NZ fields look like small hills !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Snow on the upper mountain was great but the lower mountain was rain frozen for the first few days before thawing out and providing some good spring skiing. With so much space even weekend skiing is tolerable if you avoid certain lifts and congested main runs. Plenty of wide open space and great tree skiing. Peak to Creek is a real leg burner, definitely need a beer and fries at the bottom before heading back up. Symphony chair was a favorite and the powder there seems to take longer to get skied out. Take the performance ski hire option where you can change your skis over on the mountain during the day, great for mixing up the terrain or if conditions change during the day also means your getting freshly tuned skis the whole time. Another key tip get yourself on the Gondola early as this is where it bottle necks and don't waste too much time on the peak to peak gondola, its a great ride and view but takes a while and if you have a few days your better off doing Whistler one day then Blackcomb the next. Blackcomb Glacier is definitely worth a look!

“The Ultimate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Whistler Blackcombe is the ultimate ski resort. It has the largest ski area anywhere in North America. The views from the top of the mountain are breathtaking. People and staff come from all over the world to work and experience it here, and couldn't be more friendlier. You could ski here for a week and never ski the same slope twice. This is definately a place to experience.

“Superb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Whistler is a must see for everyone going to Vancouver - Canada! The freshness and the cool breeze on your face is simply amazing! I was there last OCtober 2012 and the experience will forever be etched in my heart. My brother and sister in law who is ever such a great host to me makes my experience in Whistler more memorable! The hotel we stayed was likewise soooo nice!

“Fantastic everytime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

I have be visiting Whistler Blackcomb for a number of years now and it has never managed to disappoint. From the numerous alpine bowls to the scare the pants off cliff drops to the tight and technical runs through the trees there is something for everyone to ski or board on the hill.
Unlike other resorts and mountains that I have skied at around the world, the extent of its terrain and the awesome infrastructure at WB makes it possible to ski or board every day that you are there, if you can handle that, but if you need a down day then it is possible to kill a few hours in the village.
