Whistler/Blackcomb: Snow Report and Mountain Info
With 5,354 feet of vertical, 8,171 acres of terrain, expansive backcountry, a luxurious, yet raucous world-class village and over 400 inches of average annual snowfall, Whistler Blackcomb is the gold standard of North American ski resorts.
There is not only something for everyone at WB, but no matter what you want to do on a given day, the resort will deliver. Want to hit jumps? The mountains host parks galore, the Highest Level on Blackcomb is one of the best on the continent. Want steep trees? Head to the CB Trees on Blackcomb. Want to drop a 40-plus-foot cliff in front of hundreds of people? Head for Peak Chair on Whistler. Want to go on an epic tour? Cat skiing? Heli skiing? Want to just drink all day? It’s all here, and it’s all top-level.
Off-Hill Tip: Merlins or GLC for après food and chatter about the day. GLC has better food—and hotter waitresses—but Merlins has the hardcore feel of a classic après spot. -Dana Flahr
