Owner description: Whistler Blackcomb is consistently ranked the No. 1 ski resort in North America with over 8,171 acres of terrain. As a true four season resort, Whistler Blackcomb offers skiing and snowboarding in the winter and downhill mountain biking and alpine hiking in the summer. Guests can even enjoy summer skiing/riding on the Horstman Glacier in June and July. At Whistler Blackcomb, there is something for everyone all year long.

I spend a lot of time at Whistler/Blackcomb, both on and off the hill, but my favourite time of year is when the sun is high and hot in the sky and the only snow in sight is on the glaciers. As more and more travellers are learning, there really is no 'off season' at Whistler anymore, but the summer is a bit quieter and the village ambience is different. So what can a summer visitor do at Whistler – lots but here is my list of favourites: Hike, bike the Valley Trail or around Lost Lake. If you don't have your own bike, there are plenty of places to rent one. More avid bikers will want to check out the downhill and single tracks on the mountain, but families and people like me will prefer the valley. Lost Lake is a wonderful place to take a dip and there's a place for those who prefer swim suits and those who prefer to float in the buff.
The weekend market in the Upper Village Plaza outside the Chateau is wonderful – fresh veggies from the Pemberton Valley, fresh bakes goods, clothes, artisans and much, much more. Bike on over, pick up something yummy and have a picnic at Lost Lake!

Not too busy, loads of varied runs, lots of fun, sociable people, polite lift lines, very few cigarette butts in the snow, reasonable on-mountain food, big effort made to re-cycle litter and cafe garbage on the mountainside - well done!

Hubby and I went skiing for the first time ever and were very apprehensive. But the gondola trip took half of our fears away and our awesome instructor did the rest! The backcomb ski school is a must do when in whistler and you have never skied before, they are very supportive and have a mountain of patience to teach even the clumsiest persons like me how to stay on their feet ;)
