Skiing doesn’t have to be expensive. 

That’s why Whistler Blackcomb is offering students the coolest study break ever: an unlimited skiing and riding pass for just $599 (regularly $1,999). Experience the ultimate adventure and hit the slopes until May 23, taking advantage of North America’s hottest resort, and all just a short trip away from campus.

B.C. or Washington state post-secondary full-time students (from a pre-approved list) have special access to this awesome pass, which you can buy online. Please take note of the full eligibility terms and conditions under Eligibility and Registration.

With over 8,100 acres of legendary terrain, which is 100% open, Whistler makes for the perfect adventure and a great escape from your regular study grind. If you’re feeling nervous about tackling the mountains for the first time or if you want to refine your skills, the resort offers student pass holders a $50 off select group lessons, adult camps, or clinics

Of course, every excellent ski session needs the perfect finishing touch – in this case, stellar venues that take you seamlessly from the slopes to the best bars and restaurants. After a day of skiing you’re guaranteed to be thirsty, so check out Dusty’s Bar & BBQ at the Creekside base and grab a pint of beer. Some on-mountain restaurants also offer 20% off food and hot drinks, so don’t miss out on the deals.

If you’re opting for another casual venue, Whistler has you covered with a long list of selections, like Garibaldi Lift Co. in Whistler Village, or dance the night away with live music and daily drink specials at Merlin’s.
