We had an amazing time during our trip to Whistler Blackcomb. We skied on both mountains while enjoying the views, did Olympic bobsledding on the fastest track in the world, went to the Scandinave spa, and enjoyed the delicious food in town. We can’t wait to go back some day!
As beginner skiiers who had never been to a major ski resort (what do you mean, you have to take a gondola for 25 minutes just to get to the trails?!), we were definitely nervous about our Whistler vacation. After a fantastic MAX4 lesson—which we absolutely recommend—and a full day on Whistler, we decided to take the Peak to Peak and give Blackcomb a try. We found the tree-lined trails on Blackcomb to be a bit more intimidating than the open runs on Whistler, but after a few passes, we came to prefer the atmosphere and natural beauty of Blackcomb. We’re definitely happy we got to experience both mountains, and can’t wait to go back!
