Whistler Blackcomb Delivers A Perspective From Having It All SCROLL DOWN AND SEE WHY Down Arrow

The Big Picture

It's a concept grasped by anyone who has stood on top of a mountain and understood what it means to be filled with wonder and inspired by the wild. It's a perspective that comes from getting outside, where towering peaks and real air and fresh snow have a way of stripping off the stuff that gets in the way of what's important. It's a vantage point from which our number one rankings, legendary terrain, reliably deep snow, and world record-breaking gondola take a back seat to how it actually feels to be here.

And that feeling comes from our slope-side mountain town with an undisputed vibe. From our outdoor adventures that range from just-enough to over-the-top. From our world-famous après, five-star dining, spas, shopping, and legendary nightlife. And from of course being the largest, #1 ranked resort in North America. But the big picture isn't about those things. It's about the perspective you gain from having it all.

Whistler Blackcomb

With the most skiable terrain in North America, Whistler Blackcomb has a massive reputation. Spanning 8,171 acres, the vast and varied terrain will entice first-time skiers and seasoned shredders alike. Two side-by-side mountains are connected by the Guinness World Record-holding PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and supported by one of the largest networks of high-speed chairlifts in the world. And with one of the longest ski seasons on the continent, we’ve got all the makings of a #1-ranked resort for a reason.
