Never Ever Days Return to Whistler Blackcomb
Ski season is here in full force. The mountains are covered in snow and people have been riding Whistler Blackcomb for a couple weeks already, and this is just the start! Weather conditions call for plenty of snow and stormy weather throughout B.C this winter, which hopefully means more pow days for us.
Fun Fact: Whistler Blackcomb's snowbase record of 503 cm (about 16.5ft) was set in 1973-74.
Never Ever Days
Never Ever Days are back at Whistler Blackcomb! On December 10th & 11th, 450 lucky beginner skiers and riders, aged 19 and older, will receive a one day group lesson; lift ticket, ski or board rental, and après at the Garibaldi Lift Company for only $25. Participants in Never Ever Days will be given a ski lesson in the newly improved learning area at Olympic Station, where they will have access to freshly graded terrain and two new covered carpet lifts. Registration opens on December 5th and it sells out very quickly every year. Register Now!
Now in its 6th year at Whistler Blackcomb, the program is geared towards bringing adults who have never tried skiing or snowboarding into the sport that has spread across Canada. The Canadian Ski Council is working with over 70 ski resorts across the country to offer Never Ever Days throughout the 2016/17 winter season. For a full list of participating ski areas, please visit the Ski Canada website.
Each participant in Whistler Blackcomb's Never Ever Days will receive a $25 voucher which can be applied to an incredible comeback offer with Snow School. For those participants who are keen to continue learning to ski/snowboard after their Never Ever Days experience, the $25 voucher can go towards an additional two-day lesson, lift ticket and rental package, essentially making their initial day free.

December is the perfect time for some skiing and riding, but sometimes staying in Whistler can get a little hectic. Well Pemberton Valley Lodge is located just 30 minutes north of Whistler Blackcomb and has a ski shuttle that runs between the Lodge and base of the mountains during ski season. This makes Pemberton Valley Lodge a great choice for a real winter 'getaway'. We've got fantastic lodging deals so you can enjoy some turns with your friends and family to start the season.
