Visitor Reviews of Whistler


James from United Kingdom writes:

I came to Whistler for the season under the impression that Whistler is the best resort in North America. Whistler certainly has the best marketing department of any resort in North America and no doubt worldwide. It has only snowed occasionally and often a thick heavy snow and the few times there was a decent powder dump the change in temperature destroyed that snow in less than 24 hours.

Admittedly, the terrain if there is snow, is amazing but the recent trend, with global warming, looks like Whistler can no longer be considered a world class powder resort. However, rest assured the marketing department will continue to "incentivise" websites and reviews to place it at the top whilst regularly forecasting snow that is never due to boost weekend ticket sales!

If you are in North America head to Colorado where at least if it snows that snow will be light. If you are in Europe stay there for lower temperatures, better huts, food, apres and atmosphere. Don't be fooled by the Whistler marketing department!
