Whistler Blackcomb Terrain

Whistler Blackcomb offers an experience like no other for skiers and riders of all levels. Whistler Blackcomb hosts the largest skiable terrain in North America at 8,171 acres and features over 200 runs to carve. Both mountains have remarkable diversity in beginner, intermediate and expert slopes, as well as five revolutionary terrain parks, a Super Pipe and a Snow Cross track that are covered in an average snowfall of 404 inches per year.

And, as of December 2008, skiers and riders can now travel from one mountain to the other, without having to visit the base, via the record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, which provides an 11-minute, jaw-dropping trip across both mountains, reaching a record elevation of 1,427 feet over Fitzsimmons Creek and carrying up to 28 occupants.

What's New This Season at Whistler Blackcomb

Not leaving the record breaking to the Olympic athletes, Whistler Blackcomb’s PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola opened its doors on December 2008, setting three world records while providing an unmatched experience and limitless possibilities for winter and summer resort guests. The Gondola offers breathtaking views of the area over the course of its 11-minute trip and reaches a record-breaking elevation of 1,427 feet over Fitzsimmons Creek.

the Fitzsimmons Creek Renewable Energy Project offsets the total annual energy consumption at Whistler Blackcomb. The Fitzsimmons Creek Renewable Energy Project will produce 33 gigawatt hours per year - the equivalent amount of energy required to power the ski resort’s winter and summer operations including 37 lifts, 17 restaurants, 270 snow guns and countless other buildings and services.
