Whistler and Blackcomb are two side-by-side ski mountains in British Columbia, Canada with enough terrain to never do the same trail twice. The resort is the biggest ski area in North America, and one of the most popular ski resorts in the world. It boasts an almost 200-day ski and snowboard season, making it one of the longest in North America. The Whistler ski season typically starts in the third week of November, and can last through May, depending on snowfall and snow cover.
Although Whistler Blackcomb Resort has a lot of advanced and expert terrain, the resort also has beginner-friendly slopes distributed throughout the resort. Beginner trails make up 18% of the trails at Whistler Blackcomb, and the resort has also designated special slow skiing zones for beginners. The over 440 inches of snow a year attracts powder seekers from around the world.
In addition to the legendary terrain, Whistler Village offers a wide variety of après-ski spots, dining options, shopping and more and caters to all styles and budgets.
