Whistler Blackcomb Skiing & Snowboarding

Whistler Blackcomb

Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, both of which have an elevation of more than 7000 ft, provide some of the best skiing and riding in North America. There is an average snowfall of 10 metres per year. The two mountains have more than 200 trails, 3 glaciers, 38 lifts and 12 alpine bowls.

Whistler Snowboarding

The resort provides 8,171 acres of skiable terrain and has been rated as the number one ski resort in North America by several surveys. Every skier and snowboarder can find terrain suited to his or her skill. All in all, Whistler Blackcomb is a haven for skiers and snowboarders.

Whistler Blackcomb offers a whole range of skiing and snowboarding related activities, including:

Peak 2 Peak Gondola

Whistler Peak 2 Peak Gondola

The Peak 2 Peak Gondola spans the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.

The record-breaking Peak 2 Peak Gondola has the longest unsupported span in the world  of 3.024 kilometres, it is the highest lift of its kind at 436 metres above the valley floor and it completes the longest continuous lift system on the globe.

The Peak 2 Peak Gondola is a great sightseeing experience for any non-skiers and snowboarders in your group. Everyone can access the gondola and it is a great way to access the mountain restaurants so you can meet friends and family for lunch!

Whistler Blackcomb Ski & Snowboard School

Whistler Ski School

Whistler ski lessons are a great way to have fun and learn something new at the same time. You can learn to ski or snowboard at Whistler Blackcomb Mountains in private or group lessons, or at one of the ski camps. Qualified ski instructors ensure that you have an enjoyable experience learning how to ski, no matter your age.

There are full and half-day lessons available, with half-day lessons available in both morning and afternoon. More advanced skiers might want to consider enrolling in a special camp such as the Extremely Canadian program or one of the race clinics. Multilingual instructors are available for those whose primary language is other than English.

The Whistler Blackcomb Kids ski and snowboard programs are divided according to age; 3 to 6 years old, 7 to 12 years old and teenagers.  Younger children have lunch and story time where they spend time with the instructor learning and playing, and taking some time to rest. Skiers in older groups will spend more time on the snow, depending on the weather and the group's stamina.

Ski and snowboard lessons are a great idea if you are a beginner or just wanting to fine tune your skills. If you're on a budget, you will be happy to know that there are special discount periods (Whistler Discover Days) during the season where you can get up to 30% off the regularly priced programs.
