Voted the No.1 resort in N.America for the last few years, Whistler offers unrivaled skiing and night life. The two mountains, Blackcomb and Whistler should keep you busy for weeks, with kilometer after kilometer of piste. Then there is the off-piste at Whistler, acres of it, coupled with 11.63m average of snow a year, one of the biggest terrain parks in the world and tree skiing you cannot get bored of. One of the team had worked for a season there and reckoned he could still get lost. Off the piste at Whistler there is plenty to do with a large selection of restaurants, a tube park, zip line, bungee jumping and activities to boot.

Visitor Reviews of Whistler

cryophile from Canada writes:

Another tough year, and no discounts.
When it is colder, the lower runs with artificial snow are ok. Last few warmer days, the upper runs are better. Ridge run off Harmony, when groomed, is probably the best. Not a lot of terrain open, and the uphill capacity is enough to make most open runs too crowded.
There is really not much snow yet. Snow reports are absurdly optimistic. Crystal Ridge is a rock-pile. Has been raining above Roundhouse on the warm days. If you have a free (or prepaid) ticket, it is nice to get up high, but the snow is the pits.
