Nothing short of massive could be used to describe Whistler Blackcomb! With over 7,000 acres of terrain, it is hands-down the largest resort on the continent. And- thanks to a favorable Canadian exchange rate- you can enjoy this awesome, action-packed, fun-filled ski destination for a more-than-reasonable rate.
Whistler & Blackcomb Mountains
Located approximately 72 miles north of Vancouver, Whistler Blackcomb boasts two enormous mountains and a whopping 7,071 acres of ski terrain. Each of these mountains offers a drop of nearly one vertical mile, and more than 200 amazing trails span their combined slopes. This is the only place in North America where you can ski on a glacier- and there are THREE to choose from! Thirty lifts compose one of the most advanced systems in the industry, allowing you explore this ski resort more efficiently. And despite the low base altitude, Whistler receives an excess of 30 annual feet of snow- so you will breathe easier while tackling a mountain of amazing powder.
Modeled after a European ski community, Whistler ranks as one of the finest ski towns on the continent. From candle-lit bistros to pulse-pounding clubs to world-class shopping, Whistler Village has it. The village was designed to be centralized around the mountain, so as a result, most everything is at least walking distance to the ski slopes and the resort center. And no matter what you decide to do, the infamously friendly Canadian hospitality will be there to greet you.
We will be staying in The Tantalus Lodge, which offers twenty-four hour hospitality and Guest Services & housekeeping daily, to help you make the most of your time in Whistler. Conveniently located near the heart of Whistler village, you are no more than a 5 minute walk away from world-class dining, trendy shops and spas, golf and of course skiing, snowboarding, biking and hiking on Whistler Blackcomb. Two separate bedrooms with a queen bed in one and two twins in the second bedroom. Two full baths, living room, dining room, balcony and fireplace.
