Whistler Blackcomb

Ski resorts in Canada
Whistler Blackcomb is a world renowned ski resort. With the crisp, powdery snow that often falls on the ground, the resort is on everyone's bucket list.

Back in the days, Whistler was a place for locals but much has happened since then.

In 2010, they became the host of Winter Olympics and nowadays Whistler Blackcomb is considered to be one of the greatest ski resorts in the world.

About 12 meters of snow falls here each year, attracting skiers from all over the world. You can expect to spend quite a lot of time in line for the lifts when new snow has just been dumped in the area. Today there are 37 lifts here that provide you with unlimited skiing.

However, it's not just the snow that attracts people to Whistler. The village has several spas, restaurants, and a variety of family activities that can keep you occupied for a full week. You can even book a helicopter trip that lets you see Whistler Blackomb from the sky
