Whistler's Named No.1 Ski Resort
The countdown to winter has officially begun! The peaks have already received their first dustings of snow and Whistler Blackcomb is gearing up for another exciting year.
Whistler Blackcomb’s official opening day is set for November 24, 2016 but with good early season conditions the resort has been known to open early. And good news folks! The resort has already seen the first signs of winter with snow reaching down to mid-mountain elevations!
For the third consecutive year, the SKI Magazine Resort Survey has named Whistler Blackcomb as the Number 1 Overall Ski Resort in North America! Whistler Blackcomb has held this title four times in the last five years and has also consistently scored high for terrain variety, off-hill activities, lodging and après. With approximately 15,000 people surveyed, the SKI Magazine Resort Survey is the most comprehensive survey of its kind so this isn’t just you local opinion piece.
For this 2016-2017 season, Whistler Blackcomb is rolling out quite a few of enhancements that we’re all pretty excited about. Some upgrades to the resort this season include; newly renovated patios outside of the Roundhouse Lodge and the Garibaldi Lift Company, and a much improved beginner experience in the Olympic Zone complete with two new covered carpet lifts, regraded terrain, an improved snowmaking system, and even a new gourmet grilled cheese hut!
All sources say this season is going to be another busy one for Whistler Blackcomb so you better book your winter getaway now! Make a reservation at Aava today!
