Whistler Blackcomb combines two of the best ski mountains in the world all in one center, but until the new peak to peak gondola that one hill to the other had to go to the base of the mountain and then catch another lift upwards. This is obviously wasted valuable skiing time, so that would make the most of the skiers on the day of election. So this got me thinking, what I choose.
Unfortunately, the date, a mountain is quite limited, so I turned to a couple of friends that spent a season in Whistler Blackcomb that they prefer.
my friend John spent two seasons living in Whistler Blackcomb staff accommodation & Sylvia spent four seasons in Whistler and the Whistler favors.
John. – "Both mountains awesome so difficult choice probably skied Blackcomb more because they lived in the village, but all of the hills has its uses, depending on the circumstances, and the preference field.
to understand the differences you need to go back in history. Whistler was built in 1960 and runs are cut where ever seen an opportunity in the big run. So Whistler a more designed by the pioneering spirit of skiers for skiers.
Blackcomb on the other hand was designed with purpose and built a computer screen, so the trails and lifts connecting much better, making it ideal for skiers looking to cruise around and get plenty of runs .
a powder day is a difficult choice, but when it's cold and sunny, and 7th Heaven on Blackcomb offers Whistler Blackcomb only south-facing bowl that fixes several days to soften the cover.
intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders can head to the glacier, which is only open off Blackcomb fantastic powder skiing where fresh tracks can also be found hours a day.
a hard core terrain park lovers Blackcomb is the largest half-pipe and terrain park.
kids and kids at heart Blackcomb Adventure Centre to complete the Magic Castle, tunnels and fast turning kids friendly banks through the trees. Blackcomb ski resort is the home of the tubing park and night skiing.
The Case for Whistler
Sylvia – "After three seasons of living and working in the locals would prefer to ski where the locals preferred and most of my friends were in Whistler
Whistler generally higher. challenging terrain, including the awesome 50 foot cliff jump called Air Jordan. the back bowls of Whistler offer plenty of non-broad-piste skiing. and since the runs where cut skiers tend to get even better fall line and challenges.
I particularly love skiing trees and whilst both mountains a large tree skiing, off the peak chair in Whistler there is no comparison.
spring when the snow getting softer Whistler tends to hold heat better so Whistler is often a better option later in the season . "
Whistler Vs Blackcomb
So not very conclusive as both Whistler and Blackcomb amazing mountains and more than enough terrain and challenges to any level of skier or snowboard snow holiday happiness – I think that it all comes down to the day of the preferences and conditions.
Fortunately, the new peak to peak Gondola is the choice of which ski mountain just that little bit easier!
