The twin ski areas of Whistler-Blackcomb offer arguably the best ski package in the whole of North America.
Famed of its snow record, its vast ski bowls and its partying ski village, Whistler is amongst the top few, leading ski resorts in the world.
The skiing rarely fails to deliver; with relentless weather systems pouring into the coast of British Columbia, Canada, Whistler tends to get some of the deepest snow accumulations in Canada. One of the best features for advances skiers are the endless bowls and off piste ski terrain at Whistler-Blackcomb. The ski terrain is vast and complemented by fantastic tree skiing when the bowls are tracked out. There are also extensive terrain parks on the mountains offering graded obstacles. In typical North American fashion, a disclaimer is required before a skier or rider can access the terrain park. For the less adventurous or less able skiers there are wide, tree lined and gentle ski pistes back to the village that are well marshalled by employees controlling the conduct and speed of the faster skiers and riders.
Whistler village accesses both the ski areas of Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain. Accommodation is usually well located for ski-in and ski-out and the village that has developed massively over the last 20 years benefits from a blueprint to build a premier ski resort, that offers amenities and access to the twin mountains. Whistler lacks the peculiarities and interest of say Chamonix or Kitzbuhel, but the resort is ideally mapped out to give the skier and non-skier a fantastic destination experience. Après ski starts around the base stations in Whistler and continues late in the bars and club that are located around the resort. Whistler continues to develop and changes from season to season, adding new amenities and skiing terrain to the already massive area. The ski resort will host the majority of the ski events in the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games book early!
