One Word to Describe Whistler Blackcomb: Variety!

Whistler or Blackcomb: I probably ride 60% Blackcomb and 40% Whistler. Both mountains have a lot to offer. I'm keeping the details of my favourite runs to myself, but the Crystal chair zone has a lot to offer!

First time skiing or riding at Whistler Blackcomb: The first time I rode Whistler Blackcomb I was probably 15 and I'd never seen anything like it. The scale of the terrain here was, and still is HUGE compared to anything else I'd seen.

Other Interests/Activities: Base jumping, surfing, skateboarding, fly fishing
