I spoke with Jenni Tom. She was over the top informative helping us get the best deals on everything we could imagine. She was courteous, efficient and most of all, I felt she did the majority of the booking. I've spent countless calls with her discussing the best lessons for our kids and her recommendations on skiing and snowboarding for our teenage son (as we aren't as familiar with the later). I not only decided to do my bookings with her rather than arranging directly with some of the sources, but she also helped do the bookings for my sister-in-law and her family who are meeting us there.

Thank you Amanda. You were incredibly helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. Usually, dealing with reservations over the phone is frustrating because the agent is rude, not knowledgeable or not willing to patiently go over all the options. With you, it was easy and I felt like you gave me all the options and let me decide at my own speed.

I just wanted to send a quick message to management that I have been dealing with Erin in reservations.  She has been so helpful and so diligent.  I have thoroughly enjoyed booking my accommodations, board lessons, eco tour, ziplining and Scandinave spa through her. Good work Erin.  It’s so nice to deal with people like you

Jennifer has been so friendly, obliging and very efficient. She was very helpful with information. Her follow up was great (not pushy at all). We were so lucky to have Jennifer handle our booking. We now can’t wait to come over! Your reservation centre made our trip booking very easy – and we got a great price too.

Ask the Expert

The Mountains & Weather

Question: Do ski resorts guarantee good snow conditions?
Answer: We can't guarantee great snow, but our consistent track record let's us get pretty close. Over the past 10 years, Whistler Blackcomb has averaged annual snowfall of 11.7 metres (38.4 feet). All this natural bounty is supported by a 220-strong fleet of state-of-the-art snowguns that boost the quality and coverage of our snow all winter long.

Question: When is the best time for snow at Whistler?
Answer: Historically, November-January and March are the snowiest months of the season, but consistent snowfall throughout the season is one of the hallmarks of the Whistler Blackcomb experience.

Question: What are the advantages of the different periods that make up Whistler's winter season?
Answer: EARLY SEASON - You know what they say about the early bird. With Whistler Blackcomb’s reputation for reliable early season conditions, smaller crowds and great value, early winter is a prime time to visit.
HOLIDAYS - Imagine family time in the morning, skiing and riding all afternoon and sticking around for an epic New Year’s party. Make Whistler Blackcomb part of your holiday tradition.
DEEP WINTER - January brings deep and plentiful snow, the kinds of conditions that Whistler Blackcomb is famous for.
MID-SEASON - In February and March, Whistler Blackcomb enjoys longer daylight, the largest snow base of the year, and offers great deals for families.
SPRING SKIING - Whistler Blackcomb boasts the longest season in North America, meaning you can be up on the mountain enjoying the sunshine well into May. Don’t miss the celebration of the season, with the World Ski & Snowboard Festival in mid-April.

Question: How does Whistler compare to other resorts?
Answer: With over 8,171 acres, Whistler Blackcomb is the biggest mountain resort on the continent. It's diverse terrain offers thrills for all skill levels, from first-timers to Olympic-level elite skiers. Consistent snowfall (with an average of nearly 12m (39ft) a year over the last decade) means you can book with confidence, while a moderate temperature that rarely dips below -10ºC (12ºF) means you'll be comfortable when you arrive. A unique, vibrant, pedestrian-only base Village is the envy of resorts the world over, while a rich array of activities ensure there's plenty for everyone to do.

It all adds up to the #1 Mountain Resort in North America.

Question: What is the base/town elevation?
Answer: Whistler Village is at 2,140 ft / 652 meters and Blackcomb base is at 2,214 ft / 675 meters. This means no elevation sickness unlike other ski resorts at higher altitudes.
