Whistler Ski Resort
If the huge vertical, incredible snow record, and vibrant resort weren’t enough, three new lifts – including a new Blackcomb access gondola – have taken Whistler to the next level this winter.
Covering two huge mountains – Whistler and Blackcomb – and connected since 2008 by the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, the ski area offers almost unparalleled variety. Beginner areas are fantastic, as is the world-renowned ski school, intermediates have a vast array of groomed runs to explore and advanced skiers could be kept busy for weeks. The only issues are the crowds and the lift queues, but investment by the Canadian resort’s new owner Vail Resorts is beginning to help.
The purpose-built resort village makes for a great base, with a vast array of bars and restaurants to suit most budgets, as well as some great shopping options. Whistler’s choice of accommodation is equally wide-ranging, but it does book out fast – especially if the heart of town.
With so much choice both on and off the slopes, the best way to learn about how to explore Canada’s top resort is by utilising the Ski Club's Rep service. Make use of the Rep’s expert local knowledge between January and April this winter.
