Whistler and Blackcomb

Whistler and Blackcomb
Beautiful British Columbia really lives up to its name, which is probably why the 2010 winter Olympic games were held there. Whistler features two extensive mountains that surround the beautiful village. To highlight the gorgeous mountain we will talk about it during the winter season even though it is also one of the best summer destinations to visit.

Whistler
Whistler Mountain has a total of 37 lifts and over 8000-acres of snowy terrain. This includes backcountry skiing, extensive and long runs, and of course 5 terrain parks with a super-pipe! Remember, this is no ordinary mountain. In fact, it is massive and can be quite challenging depending on your abilities. As you approach each bowl, take a look at the majestic scenery. This part of the mountain is open to all levels of snowboarders/skiers, but we do recommend riders bring a map with them.

Blackcomb
The exciting and intimidating Blackcomb Glacier shadows the second part of Whistler. This part of the mountain features much steeper runs and thus may require a higher riding skill level. Nonetheless, it is equally comparable to Whistler Mountain and it is a bit overwhelming to ride both mountains in the same day, but not impossible.

Whistler Village
Whistler has a relatively small year-round population of 10,000 people. The locals of Whistler are extremely welcoming, as they get about 40-50,000 people that visit the snowboarding haven every year. So be sure to explore the village if you enjoy high-quality cuisine and tons of bars. The winter wonderland probably has one of the best social scenes for any mountain. For children, the daytime in the village is full of exciting things to do like tubing at the Coca-Cola tube park or their public bunny hill. For adults, the village is a fun getaway for groups of friends/families or a romantic winter escapade with your partner.
