The Largest Mountain Resort on the Continent
The grandest ski area in North America, Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains are connected by the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, also accessed by heli-sking and cat-skiing. Combined they have 37 lifts and more than 200 trails, of which 80% are intermediate or advanced. Both mountains claim runs as long as 7 miles! The resort, owned primarily by Vail Resorts, offers ski slopes for all abilities, open from mid-November to late May. Whistler Blackcomb is one of 13 resorts served by Vail’s Epic Pass. For those looking for an extended ski season, glacier skiing and snowboarding are typically available from early June to mid-July,
