So there is a definite divide amongst whistler’ites’ to as which is the better mountain. Whistler OR Blackcomb?
Since I have been a ski bum in both areas and worked all over Whis from Alpine to Creekside, I will weigh the PROS and CONS of each mountain correctly and as accurate as my Frenchy-ness will allow. From the best places to get hooked up like a local, go tower hunting, and pretend like you are a handicap, when you really just want first chair on opening day on Blackcomb!
Super sweet groomers, Red Chair (early season), Peak to Creek, you can ski with your mom there, Round house has a bar dedicated to our Aussi and Sepo Friends. Jordan’s is always entertaining, tons of traversing just like I like it, keep them snow-boarders away. $$ spots to act rich and park underground and pop right onto the slopes!
Is pretty much cooler in every way. Terrain is better, you can live in Alpine and closer to Pemberton, Lots of Cliffs and Rocks, You will bump into every Pro Skier in town skiing BLACK bcs it is the place to be, CBC trees, DOA, Best Slackcountry in the Universe. Glacier Lodge has the best “tower hunting” system. Long shitty flat groomers after skiing the best line of your life off spanky’s or ruby, Most cougars ski on Whistler so you can party at the Longhorn and never see them on the mountain, HA! The Glacier Windlip, Pillows, and the longest tree runs of your life, pretty much make Blackcomb the winner.
