ALLTRACKS courses all take place at Whistler Blackcomb, Canada.

Whistler is at the epicentre of the modern skiing and snowboarding movement and offers the best combination of terrain size and huge snowfall to be found anywhere. You will not be disappointed by the off-slope options either as there are so many things to do in Whistler and events to attend throughout the Whistler ski season.

When it comes to quality of service, the benefits of operating exclusively at one single resort are obvious, but we always knew it had to be a special place. Whistler delivers and more! If you’re looking for a ski or snowboard trip of a lifetime, it’s got to be Whistler.

SNOW: JOIN THE POWDER CLUB

With almost 40 feet of average annual snowfall, Whistler blows all but a handful of world resorts out of the water for reliable skiing and snowboarding conditions.

In Whistler, it snows big. With more and more people wanting to improve their deep snow technique and enjoy the pleasure of powder riding, Whistler is the ideal resort.

Located in the mighty Coast Mountains that stretch along British Columbia and Alaska, Whistler is the first major resort to get hit by the prevailing Pacific storms, generally bringing the most intense snow and deepest powder days. We can get as geeky as you like about snowfall, so if you want to discuss further, please get in touch and we’d love to talk to you about it.

TERRAIN: SIZE MATTERS

Whistler Blackcomb boasts some 8100 acres of resort terrain, and has access to some of the most exciting backcountry skiing in Canada, which provides limitless options – an important consideration when taking an extended course.

The scale of terrain only tells half the story. The sheer diversity is what really sets Whistler apart. From world class tree riding, huge open powder bowls, steep couloirs, long pistes, glaciers and world class freestyle facilities – Whistler has it all.

The ski area is made up of two distinct mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, linked by the mighty Peak2Peak Gondola. As they say in Whistler, “it’s awesome squared”.

Both mountains offer a mile of vertical drop making for long runs through diverse terrain. The upper half of both mountains is generally open, alpine terrain with a combination of powder bowls, chutes, wide groomers and moguls as well as amazing scenery.

Lower down, you hit some of the best and extensive tree skiing anywhere on Earth. When it’s dumping snow, the trees on the lower half of the mountains provide shelter, visibility and keep the snow in great condition protected from the sun and wind.

When the weather calms, the upper alpine terrain offers a great contrast with fantastic open bowls and spectacular vistas.

THE VILLAGE: FRIENDLY, REAL & ENERGETIC

The resort itself is an energetic and friendly place.

Unlike many Canadian resorts, Whistler village is right at the base of the ski area and not a long bus ride away, making for a fantastic ski resort atmosphere.

It is not a resort that shuts down outside the ski season and is home to thriving permanent community of skiers, snowboarders and others who love life in the mountains.

This is an especially important consideration for people considering a longer course as you really do feel part of the wider community and enjoy the benefits and facilities that come with that.

There are plenty of things to do in Whistler, as it is home to Canada’s best après ski with a diverse collection of mountain stores, cafes and restaurants, a cinema, theatre, gyms, climbing centre and much more.

There are countless exciting events that happen in Whistler throughout the season that really do add to the overall enjoyment of your experience.

Highlights include the annual Whistler Film Festival, the Arc’teryx Deep Winter Photography Competition and the World Ski & Snowboard Festival.

Accommodation in Whistler

During your time in Whistler we want you to have a comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Alltracks provides homely Whistler accommodation in well located, comfortable chalets and condos which you will share with other guests.

We strongly feel that being in a chalet or condo makes for a much better experience than a motel, hostel or hotel as you truly have a place to call home.

Although exact facilities vary from place to place, you can be sure that our Whistler accommodation is of a good, homely standard and will have a comfortable sitting room, well equipped kitchen, free WIFI internet and TV.

Room Choices

There are various room choices. Most people opt for a twin room (occasionally bunks), sharing with one other person, but you are welcome to book your own single occupancy room (for an additional fee) if you wish. Similarly, if you are happy to share a triple or quad room, these are available on some courses at a slightly lower price.

If you would like to chat about specific Whistler accommodation locations and room choices, please do get in touch. We fully appreciate that where you stay is important.

If you would like to arrive early or extend your stay, we can generally provide that (for a cost), but please do let us know in advance as places do often get fully booked.

ACCOMMODATION LOCATIONS

Whistler is a large resort, which is what makes it such an ideal location for an extended visit. Although the exact chalets/condos can vary for each particular programme, our accommodation is in a few select areas of Whistler.

As you can see our accommodation is NOT in the outlying areas of Creekside, Alta Vista or Alpine Meadows like our competitors. Our accommodation is in Whistler Village, Montebello, White Gold, Whistler Cay Heights, Village North, Upper Village.
