Skiing Whistler Blackcomb
Whistler Blackcomb receives lots of press about its big mountain features, but the resort offers plenty of terrain to be tried by every family member and skill level. The Whistler Blackcomb Snow School, among the best in North America, is for seasoned skiers looking to sharpen their turns or for kids as young as toddlers who want to strap into a snowboard for the very first time. Teen and tween small-group lessons are equal parts instruction—in the terrain parks and beyond—and socializing. Nonskiers are welcome on the Whistler and Peak 2 Peak gondolas and have the village to themselves during the day. More than 25 on-mountain restaurants make a snap of setting up a rendezvous for big groups.
