So here are a number of statistics to help persuade you that Whistler is the place for your ski holiday this season, regardless of whether you’re coming alone, as a couple of with a big group of friends and/or family.

Snow

Snow is pretty important for a ski holiday I’m sure you’ll agree. Thankfully Whistler usually gets loads of the good stuff – an annual average of almost 40 feet! For the 16/17 season, there are early signs of a potentially even larger amount of snow as the El Nina weather system looks to be coming into play. What’s more, Whistler’s massive snowfall all but ensures a really long ski season and we’re hoing 16/17 season goes on into June.

Amount of Terrain in Whistler

No other North American ski resort comes close to matching the size of Whistler Blackcomb’s ski area. With over 8100 Acres of skiing across both mountains, there really is masses of ski terrain for all types of skier and snowboarder. Plenty of easy green runs and numerous beginner/learning areas, multiple blues for intermediates looking to do lots of miles over their ski holiday and the most black and double black diamond runs in Canada for expert skiers looking to challenge themselves.
