Family skiing with instructor

North America’s largest ski resort, Whistler Blackcomb, is one of the best ski holiday destinations in the world. From incredible terrain spanning across two expansive mountains, to an exciting après scene and charming village, to exciting events all season long, there are so many reasons why Whistler is the place to be in the winter. Plan your Whistler ski holiday and experience why it’s ranked the #1 ski resort in North America.  

Unmatched Terrain 

Whistler Blackcomb boasts more terrain variety than any other ski resort in the world, offering over 200 marked runs, 8,171 acres of terrain, 16 alpine bowls and 3 glaciers, with 1,036 centimeters (408 inches) of snow on average annually. With steep chutes, rolling blues, crisp groomers, greens to learn on, thrilling descents and unbeatable scenery, there’s something for everyone across Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. The world’s longest continuous lift system will get you from peak to peak so you can try it all.  

Exquisite On-Mountain Dining & Après Ski

A can’t-miss Whistler Blackcomb experience is getting a whipped cream-topped waffle at Crystal Hut on Blackcomb Mountain as mid-day fuel. Or you can check out the ooey, gooey cinnamon rolls at Chic Pea. Glacier Creek Lodge has warm, hearty ramen to fill you up, or you can head to Raven's / Sḵewḵ' / Yecwlào7, the first indigenous-inspired restaurant on the mountain. Start the party early at Umbrella Bar and toast to those incredible views, then roll right into après.  

When the sun goes down, the party continues. Check out Merlin’s Bar & Grill at the base of Blackcomb for a sky-high plate of nachos and a party vibe, or head to The GLC for a more sophisticated lounge-style restaurant. Take in some Olympic history at Dusty’s Bar and BBQ, located in Creekside Village, at the base of Whistler and part of the 2010 Olympics runs. Head out into the Village for even more after-hours fun and delicious eats.  

Charming & Bustling Village 

Whistler Village is nestled at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. With its endless array of shops, cafés and bars, restaurants and legendary après nightlife, the pedestrian-only Village is a destination unto itself, a one-of-a-kind confluence of two massive mountains. 

Whether you’re in the mood for a leisurely stroll along its stone walkways, some people-watching from its countless sunny patios, exploring the fun-filled family playgrounds, or launching your next on-mountain adventure, Whistler Village delivers a recipe of winter magic that simply can’t be matched. 

Lodging Options for Everyone  

You can find accommodation deals for every budget and taste at Whistler Blackcomb. Choose from a unique selection of luxury hotel suites, spacious studios, family-friendly townhomes with full kitchens, private vacation rentals and so much more. With six distinct areas in which to stay, each with its own unique personality and advantages, you’re bound to find the perfect fit for your next dream ski holiday.  

  • Whistler Village 
    • The heart of the resort, a pedestrian-only village with many dining, après, and shopping options that is only steps from the gondola. 
  • Upper Village 
    • At the base of Blackcomb Mountain, it offers the best of both worlds: alpine seclusion that’s still close to the action of Whistler Village, which is just a ten-minute walk or free shuttle ride away. 
  • Village North 
    • For families or large groups looking for a more low-key, condo experience, look no further. With lower cost options and still just a short walk or free shuttle ride to Whistler Village, Village North is a great option.  
  • Whistler Creekside 
    • Whistler Creekside is one of Whistler Blackcomb’s best-kept secrets. Stay in one of three upscale, sophisticated hotels: Legends, Evolution, and First Tracks Lodge. Enjoy a completely separate base area with its own shops, restaurants, pubs, grocery store, ski school, and rental shop - even its own dedicated gondola. 
  • Whistler Valley 
    • Whistler Valley encompasses Blueberry Hill and Nicklaus North, two luxury neighborhoods with large home options with stunning lake vistas. 
  • Pemberton 
    • An easy and picturesque 25-minute drive north of Whistler, Pemberton offers a variety of accommodations with something to suit every style and budget.
