Whistler and Blackcomb mountains offer more world class skiing than anywhere in North America. For the 2004/05 winter season, Whistler Blackcomb invested $14.2 million in on-mountain improvements, introduced 1,100 acres of new terrain on Whistler Mountain, unveiled a fully redeveloped Creekside base, hosted the 2005 Snowboard World Championships, and launched a Superpipe on Blackcomb Mountain, lit for night skiing and riding.
In addition, Whistler Blackcomb expanded and moved its Family Zone, creating an improved experience for families and beginners, and completed many other improvements including expanded landing zones (gathering areas), wider runs, improved ski-outs, and a much improved Nintendo Terrain Park, along with a brand new Tube Park. If you haven't skied or ridden here lately, you're in for some very welcome surprises!
With over 8,100 skiable acres, more than 200 trails, 33 lifts, 12 alpine bowls, and over 300 inches of average annual snowfall, Whistler Blackcomb is some of the best skiing or riding to be had anywhere.
