Reviews for Whistler Blackcomb
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Vail have fucked whistler over. Queues are enormous. Lifts break down very often. There is no chance you can go up with whistler gondola without it stopping. Embarrassing. And there is no competition. Go somewhere else.... Full Review
looks like Vail wants to ruin the resort. they put you to sign a waver and send you in a unmaintained terrain full of traps. the numbers of collarbone fractures in skiers falling and hitting a frozen mogul tripled in last 2 years. everywhere unmarked ditches and creek holes. Lift personal is new and unprepared, last year one lift run half of the season on diesel engine because the mountain was saving money on fixing electrical engine. Experienced groomers with 20+ years were fired and the new groomers are too few and have no clue what and how. More than 50% of ski school was not hired and new instructors that have no idea of instructing are sold to you consumer for very large prices for a submediocre service. A lot of facilities are closed early, toilets are miserable and not all open, food is frozen and heated/served by amateurs for a way too large price in paper plates. cutleries are not cleaned properly. the fun and SAFE spirit is gone. looking forward to see Vail gone from the management of this beautiful resort....

I was in Whistler in the week of 01/23/2022 to 01/228/2022, I took a week like few times I have. Sun, blue sky, heat, few people. The snow was still good, as it hadn't snowed for a week.... Full Review
The grooming seems inept. Why would they groom down the powder on the main runs just before opening time? Take great powder day and ruined it completely.
And then why on icy days not even groom The main runs so that it’s dangerously icy?... Full Review
terrain is well maintained, staff is excellent along with facilities. can be crowded on the bottom but mountain is so enormous that the crowd thins out at the top. village is near and so accommodations is perfect. lots of things to do after a long day in the mountains. (PUBS) watering holes... Full Review
I’ve been looking and refreshing the Whistler Blackcomb website for ski lift tickets for my boyfriend and myself for January 1, 2021. I was told to keep refreshing and so I did. I managed to find a pair the first time and proceeded to the payment and once the payment was processed the date for the lifts was incorrect and dated for December 29th. I called and spoke with the customer service rep to get a refund and was told that it would take 3-4 business days and so I should keep trying. I kept on refreshing the page until I found a second pair so I proceeded with the same steps and got the same outfome. I’m not to sure why it would process and then change the date to a date that I didn’t want. I called in once again spoke with Nisha and she had mentioned that there was nothing that they can do and no way possible I would receive my refund within the same day. I asked to speak to her supervisor and she hung up on me. At this point I’m very fed up. It was the companies error and the way that the situation was handled was not adequate. I spoke with the supervisor and got the same treatment and it’s ridiculous that they give no compensation either on their part.... Full Review
We are Park City Utah locals. We've had many frustrations with Vail since they purchased Park City. It's truly lost it's locals feel and seems to be driven more by greed than customer service. However, since we live there we have continued to buy the EPIC passes. We just came to Whistler to use our EPIC passes and can now see the same poor service here at Whistler. Key lifts down for maintenance. Biggest lift lines we've ever seen. They won't honor my sons EPIC Pass here because his is a youth pass in Park City and we were actually able to get it at a discount. We flew all the way here to use our EPIC passes and now have to pay over $100 per day out of pocket for his ski passes this week. Zero flexibility in offering him any assistance or discount. Voids any savings we achieved by buying him a youth pass in the first place. Nothing but greed from this company. No customer service or appreciation of customer loyalty. IKON passses for us next year. We will see how that goes moving forward. Going to have to drive by Park City each day to go ski at other resorts but it's worth it to us at this point.... Full Review
The mountain is staffed with 90% young people who are on a gap year. The experienced instructors are being driven away, the groomers walked off encases, and they struggle to keep the lifts operating. The top of the mountain did not open until mid January. We are hear for the season and will Nepotism repeat. We are a family of 15 skiers. The snow school experience has been good, the max 4 program is well run and provides a good value.
