Great snow esp when get away from main lifts. Runs not crowded
Awful lift queues; restaurants on mountain crowded and others closed

Full review

Great skiing, beautiful scenery, friendly people, empty runs in alpine zones , well groomed pistes, clean hotels, choice of food BUT lift lines ridiculous- wait in line and travel on slow lifts takes twice as long as you actually ski for; no ‘bubbles’on the lifts to protect from the elements which when compared to much of Europe is archaic; the worst were the restaurants- massively crowded on whistler side with some closed for end of season- a cynic might say they were just maximising profits by ramming everyone into one spot- even at half two in afternoon by which time they were really untidy and unpleasant. Blackcomb side much better and less busy or so it seemed. compared to four years ago a real disappointment - infrastructure needs a real upgrade. Wouldn’t rush back which is a shame because we had a ball last time
