With a break in the weather last week, Whistler Blackcomb took advantage of a golden opportunity and sent an All Star group of team athletes into the Blackcomb Alpine to “check things out” with the good people from Whistler Heli-Skiing.

It’s winter sneak-peeks into like this that remind us of the light at the end of this rainy tunnel, and that light comes in the form of the 30′ of snow we receive annually, being dubbed the #1 Ski Resort in North America (again!) by Ski Magazine, our Village teeming with people from around the globe and enough world-class events, dining and recreational winter activities to fill a month (or an entire season).
Whether you are new to the snow scene or have been skiing since you were old enough to walk (as my kids were!), we can’t wait to welcome you to our Winter Paradise. We’ll have plenty of snow ready for you!
