It’s no mystery why Whistler Blackcomb is ranked as North America’s #1 mountain resort. To get a ranking like that, you have to do a lot of things right. For starters, you have to have a picture-perfect alpine village nestled at the base of the continent’s largest side-by-side ski mountains. You have to have terrain that comes in such a variety of shapes and sizes that there is something for everyone, including North America’s most renowned terrain parks. But that’s not enough. Every year you also need an average of 9 meters (360 inches) of snow falling all over those mountains, and the whole package needs to come together at prices that won’t take your breath away. This is no small feat, yet Whistler Blackcomb wraps it all up in one nice neat package. Getting your regular dose of adventure has never been so easy. From the numerous family activities to our renowned expert ski and snowboard terrain, there’s something for everyone.
