After a long summer, many people are dying to ski in Whistler. But is Whistler ready for the skiing season? The answer is no. While autumn has ushered in cooler temperatures, it is still quite warm in Whistler. The skiing season usually starts just after the third week in November and lasts until the end of March. The two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, offer every type of skiing possible for both amateurs and professionals. Together, these two mountains have over 200 marked ski trails and more than 8,000 acres of terrain.
Ski in Whistler
When you first get to Whistler, you may be overwhelmed by the size and complexity, but don’t worry, there is a free orientation tour which gives you an in-depth guide to the place.
Because there are so many trails that start and end at different points over the mountains it is important to have a plan. So before you get to Whistler, get a map of the place. And when you get to Whistler spend some time studying the interactive map of the two mountains to know what trails you want to ski and which village you want to start out from.
Have you ever skied before
If you have never skied before, do not worry; each year thousands of people visit Whistler and many have never skied before. Whistler has many professional skiers who are available for advice and help. If you want private lessons you can book half a day or a full day private lesson with the pros or you can book a spot with the Max4 group, which ensures that you will get all the necessary advice on skiing.
Whistler is usually jam-packed so it is important to avoid popular holidays and long weekends. The best times to visit are in December and early January when the crowds are thinner. Because the days are short, it is important to get to the slopes early. The first lifts start around 8.30 am. This will give you the entire morning to ski, then take a lunch break and ski through the midday.
And if you do not have any ski equipment, do not worry. Whistler offers all types of rental equipment at an affordable price. When you rent you also get expert advice on where to ski and how to make the most of your day at the resort. Finally, do leave ample time for a snack. Queues at most diners and restaurants in Whistler tend to be very long.
