In 2010, the world was introduced to Whistler Blackcomb’s inherent natural beauty, and the resort’s cascading slopes have continued to attract visitors from across the globe ever since. 

Resting just 125 kms north of Vancouver, Whistler is every alpine enthusiast’s dream.But why should visitors make their way to the mountain mecca? Here are three reasons why Whistler Blackcomb holds the crown as North America’s top ski resort: 

The endless slopes

Whistler Blackcomb is the largest ski resort in North America. With more than 8,171 skiable acres in bounds, you could spend an entire season on the slopes and still have unexplained left to explore. Serviced by 37 lifts, that carry you up the mountains and into the sky Whistler Blackcomb boasts twin summits that are connected by the majestic Peak2Peak Gondola. 

The après-ski culture

The après-ski in Whistler Village is a culture in itself. When the sun goes down, the village comes alive. Whether you feel like cozying up by a warm fire and reliving the magic of the day, or dancing the night away at one of the village’s nightclubs; Whistler’s après has something for every taste. 

There’s something for everyone

Even if skiing isn’t your thing, you’ll find your adrenaline fix in Whistler. The resort offers activities from snowmobiling to zip lining, and even an opportunity to relive a part of Olympics history by hurling yourself down the skeleton track? We all remember Jon Montgomery’s celebratory pitcher at the base of his run, otherwise known as the most Canadian moment ever. Well, now’s your chance to recreate the rush and feel like a champion for the day.
