Size does matter! Whistler Blackcomb is the biggest ski resort in North America boasting 3,306 hectares (8,171 acres) of skiable terrain, that's double Perisher's 1,609 vertical meters PLUS over 200 trails including powder bowls, cruisers and glaciers. “The two mountains provide enough terrain for multiple lifetimes”.

Why have one, when you can have two? Whistler & Blackcomb are two separate mountains joined by the famous Peak 2 Peak gondola. That’s double the action, double the fun! Plus an awesome ride in-between! 

This past summer saw the installation of 3 NEW lifts! The $66 Million CAD project saw the development of the new Emerald Express 6-person chairlift, the upgrade of the Catskinner double chair to a high speed quad chair and also the installation of the 10 Person Blackcomb Gondola! All 3 of these lifts have made their debuts this winter offering unforgettable skiing & snowboarding!
