Together Whistler and Blackcomb mountains have the largest ski area in North America, with just over 8000 acres of skiable terrain and more than 200 marked trails. Both mountains divide terrain and lifts relatively equally.
In addition to the pisted terrain there are a dozen huge Alpine bowls including three with glaciers. The area's lift system includes 13 high-speed quad chairs, four gondolas that are faster still, and there are five different base areas from which to access it all.
Despite having the most skier/'boarder visits of any North American resort, this powerful lift system has helped the resort win awards for also having the shortest lift queues. There's a vast choice of terrain of course, steep powder chutes, challenging mogul fields, secluded tree skiing, and endless smooth groomed cruisers. Runs are up to 11 kilometres (seven miles) in length on both mountains.
