Whistler in Canada Resort Guide
Together Whistler and Blackcomb mountains have the largest ski area in North America, with just over 7,000 acres of skiable terrain and more than 200 marked trails. Both mountains divide terrain, lifts and acreage relatively equally. In addition to the pisted terrain there are 12 huge Alpine bowls including three with glaciers. The area's lift system includes ten high-speed quad chairs, three gondolas that are faster still and there are five different base areas from which to access it all. Despite having the most skier/'boarder visits of any North American resort this powerful lift system has helped the resort win awards for also having the shortest lift queues.
Accomodation & Après Ski
Quite a lively resort after dark with a range of pubs and clubs, well frequented by Brits. Not a good destination for smokers, unless you're trying to give up that is, there's no smoking in public building's throughout the province of BC. Vancouver is a day trip away and the big city can be a welcome change of scene from the insular world of the resort.
