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.
Is a huge, diverse and beautiful place. Uphill access is incredibly good. The weather and conditions are often not great but there is always snow to find. ... Full Review
Spent the week of March 4 - 11 at Whistler Blackcomb. Sunshine all but one day, grooming not the best I've seen, but still quite good. Lines were short if you know how to play them (e.g., don't go to the Whistler Gondola first thing in the AM, use Fitzsimmons chair instead.) Afternoon lines were non-existent. Yes, prices are high, but Whistler is a premier resort, not a podunk mountain. Staff was friendly and helpful. Lifts and gondolas operated dependably with one short delay experience (15 min one day at the Crystal Express lift.) Village has many places to eat from cheap to very pricy, you just have to do some research. Many British and Aussie skiers as well as Canadians. Scenic beauty from the higher mountain slopes is hard to beat. I will return.... Full Review
I’m done with the crowds in Colorado, I like Telluride but it’s too hard to get to, Utah’s too big of a pain in the butt to buy a bottle of wine. California’s has way too many borders. I like the Whistler vibe the towns fun, and I love the side of the mountain.... Full Review
At one time a great local mountain for the Vancouver region. Now, Vail and rich shits have over priced the experience for those that made this the mountain it once was. ... Full Review
The line ups are insane here and at $220+ a day it's not worth it anymore. Vale are trying to force the working man out and cater to the rich clientele. Lifts are a joke a theres always huge lines. I'm pretty sure they want you to stop skiing after an hour and spend money in their shops and bars.... Full Review
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
