Last week’s post covered Passover vacation at Whistler Mountain, but Whistler is only half of the famed Whistler Blackcomb ski range. Blackcomb Mountain is located north of Whistler Mountain and is taller than its counterpart, with a peak elevation of 5,280 feet. Though the very top of Blackcomb Mountain isn’t serviced by lifts, it still features a skiable vertical of an impressive 5,133 feet. The horizontal measurements are similarly amazing; the mountain’s largest skiable run is seven miles in length. Overall, Blackcomb Mountain boasts 3,414 acres of skiable terrain that can be explored and enjoyed as part of Pesach on the Mountain’s Passover program.
Blackcomb Mountain is geared especially to those with some experience under their belts, with 30% of the trails designed for experts and 55% of the trails geared towards skiers in the intermediate range. However, approximately 15% of the more than 100 trails on Blackcomb Mountain are suitable for beginners so that even visitors with less experience can enjoy both mountains in the range. In addition to the multitude of available trails, Blackcomb Mountain also boasts three parks, a super pipe, and a snow cross track. To get up Blackcomb Mountain, you can choose from one of the 17 available lifts, which combined can transport more than 31,000 up the mountain each hour.
