The Mountains
SKI Magazine Reader’s Poll has named Whistler Blackcomb the No. 1 overall best ski resort in North America. Whistler Blackcomb also received top marks in the terrain variety, off-hill activity and après categories - the resort truly has something to offer everyone.
With 8,171 acres, Whistler-Blackcomb is the largest ski area in North America.  The twin mountains offer over 200 named trails to explore, ensuring that skiers of all abilities will find plenty of terrain to test their skills.  Combine that with a vertical rise of 5280', and a 10-year average snowfall of 469", and it's easy to see why the readers of Ski Magazine often vote Whistler-Blackcomb as the #1 ski resort in North America.
Thrill seekers will want to experience the breathtaking views of the Peak To Peak Gondola, a marvel of engineering that passes 1427 feet above Fitzsimmons Creek. With a total length of 2.7 miles, the Peak To Peak connects Whistler Mountain to Blackcomb Mountain, and gives skiers and boarders faster access to the upper terrain on both peaks. The Peak To Peak holds the world record for the longest free span between towers, and  was named one of Canada's "Signature Experiences".  For the ultimate thrill,  wait a few minutes for one of the two silver glass-bottomed cars.

The Town

Whistler's award winning village was designed to encourage pedestrian traffic.  The Village Stroll, a stone pedestrian-only walkway provides easy access to the many boutique shops, restaurants, bars, and nightlife activities.  The village offers a multitude of dining & nightlife options.



We’ll be staying in the 2-bedroom/2-bath Model suites (800-835 sq ft) at the Delta Whistler Village Suites.  Conveniently located in the heart of Whistler Village, you're just steps away from shopping, dining, and nightlife, and a short shuttle ride from the lifts. Each European styled unit was updated in 2014 and has a full kitchen and a washer & dryer, along with high speed wireless internet.
