Glide through miles of groomed trails or chop it up in the powdery backcountry. For the truly daring, Whistler offers multiple terrain park rails, ramps and halfpipes. With so many wintertime options, guests are certain to leave with a wealth of warm memories.

Need to brush up on the basics? Or maybe you want some expert advice on navigating moguls. Whistler Blackcomb Ski & Snowboard School can match you up to the appropriate skill level and get you carving down the mountain in no time. The variety of snow conditions provide you with a chance to work on a range of techniques with some of the best instructors in the world.
Step in for a half day with a group class, or for the ultimate learning opportunity, team up with a private instructor to hone in on specific performance issues. Weeklong ski camps are also available for an unforgettable learning experience.
When groomed trails just won’t cut it, it’s time to check out a guided backcountry tour. Skiers and snowboarders can enlist the help of a snowmobile guide to carry them into remote pristine snow. Riders are guaranteed 7000 vertical feet of mountainside, which equals an average of 6 to 10 runs, but guides are more than happy to carry you up all day long.
But for the ultimate adventure, fly up to remote mountain peaks with a heliskiing tour. Make a day of skiing or snowboarding down miles of untouched glistening powder. The extraordinary views and dramatic descents of the Whistler and Blackcomb ranges promise to give an experience to remember for a lifetime.
More than 17 miles of track-set cross-country trails weave through the Whistler Village area and mountainside.

Different routes are designed to accommodate beginning skiers to experts. Rental equipment and trail maps are available in outfitting stores throughout the village. The season typically lasts from November to March.
