In the ski resort communities of British Columbia, two giants dominate: Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. 8,100 acres of ski terrain dropping close to 5,200 feet entice both beginner and expert skiers to take advantage of some of the longest trails in North America; the extreme being the 7 mile ski run from Blackcomb Glacier to the Whistler ski resorts.Cross country skiers will be pleasantly occupied as well, with plenty of accessible backcountry on both mountains. After a long day skiing on the slopes, you can relax and enjoy the many attractive offerings in the central village, which instantly transports you to a world dripping with European flair and mystique.Not only a ski resort; Whistler's ski season is long enough for 18 ski runs in the morning and 18 holes of golf in the afternoon. No other ski resort but Whistler offers North American skiing, a European ski resort charm, and the ability to ski and golf, all on the same day!
The Magic Castle and Tree Fort are fun adventure play lands for kids to explore. The Magic Castle is located on Blackcomb Mountain in the Children's Adventure Park, which is accessible via Easy Out, just above the base of the Catskinner Chair. On Whistler Mountain, kids can hang out and play in the Tree Fort, located just off of Bear Cub trail near the Big Red Express chairlift. These outdoor play areas provide a little magic for families to find and explore while taking a break from skiing or snowboarding.

Our Mountain Safety Team has been steadily growing and improving for the past ten years. You can't miss our full-time and volunteer members in their bright yellow jackets. We are on the mountain each day patrolling the 'Slow Zones' and any other areas that could become congested.
- SLOW ZONES
Slow Zones are clearly identifiable by the banners and signs at the run entrances, and are clearly marked on the trail maps.
Our members are on the look-out for skiers and riders travelling too fast or displaying reckless behavior. Normally, a verbal warning will correct fast and reckless issues, but on occasion, skiing and riding privileges are suspended.
Our mission is to ensure that all guests and employees are aware of the Alpine Responsibility Code, thereby making our slopes safer for all. You can help the Mountain Safety Team by skiing or riding in control, by travelling at the same speed as others in Slow Zones, and by using common sense and courtesy while on our mountains.
Safety doesn't stop when the snow melts. Please read our Hiking Tips to ensure a safe summer mountain experience.
- HELMET USAGE
Whistler Blackcomb recommends wearing helmets for skiing and riding. Skiers and snowboarders are encouraged to educate themselves on the benefits and limitations of helmet usage. The primary safety consideration, and obligation under the Alpine Responsibility Code, is to ski and ride in a controlled and responsible manner.
- ADDITIONAL TREE WELL INFORMATION
Natural hazards such as tree wells occur within and outside of the ski area boundary. Whistler Blackcomb would like to remind all guests to ski and ride with care, obey all mountain signage, and ski/ride with a partner or group.
A tree well is a hole or depression that forms around the base of a tree while snow accumulates. A tree well incident occurs when a person falls, head first, into an area of deep snow around the base of a tree and becomes immobilized. The more the person struggles the more entrapped in the snow they become. The risks of a tree well accident or fatality can be reduced by following these basic practices:
Always ski or ride with a partner
Keep your partner in sight and stay in visual contact so they can see you if you fall
Stay close enough to either pull or dig each other out
