Whistler epitomises luxury skiing for discerning travellers, not least because it was a host city for the 2010 Winter Olympics resulting in its sporting facilities being second to none. You have at your disposal over 8,000 acres of skiable terrain across two mountains – Whistler and Blackcomb. This winter wonderland truly offers a fusion of apres-ski ambience and enjoyable runs and trails, all set in outstanding natural beauty.
With its reliable snowfall, well-maintained trails and top-level tuition, the destination is suitable for skiers and snowboarders of all levels of experience. Blackcomb’s ‘Green Line’ is for example a nice easy run, accessible from both the Whistler Village Gondola and the Blackcomb Gondola, with a very forgiving slope, and plenty of space for those inevitable early falls. Meanwhile, if you are more experienced and want to get your adrenaline pumping, Whistler’s gorgeous High Note Trail is regarded as a challenging run, providing opportunities for advanced skiers and riders to navigate through deep powder, stunning glades and thrilling descents.
