The best resort on the continent. I've been all over UT, CO, MT, CA, WA & OR and Whistler Blackcomb beats them all. The powder's not as dry & light as UT or CO but there's more of it. This place has, by far, the best village and apres anywhere in the US or Canada. It also has the largest amount and widest variety of terrain of any resort--couloirs, cliffs, cornices, groomers, glades, wide open bowls, terrain parks, moguls, pillow lines, backcountry, everything!The parks are good but not as well maintained as Mammoth or Bear Mountain in soCal. Whatever you want out of a ski resort you can find at Whistler/Blackcomb. If I could only ski one resort for the rest of my life Whistler/Blackcomb would, without a doubt, be the one.
