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.
