Right now Timberline Lodge Ski Area is the only mountain running lifts in North America but that will change tomorrow as Whistler/Blackcomb currently preps its Horstman Glacier for summer skiing and riding.
Stating tomorrow, June 20, adults will be able to access two t-bars, terrain parks, and mostly intermediate terrain for the price of $65 a day or $485 for a summer season pass. The Horstman Glacier is also home to freestyle as well as race camps and although these groups reserve some terrain, there is plenty of skiing to go around on the glacier.
Operating hours are 12-3pm daily, with first chair going up at 11am. Other amenities include access to the Horstman Hut, first-hand views of some of the best on-snow athletes in the world, and sunburned nostrils. Skiing and riding will go until July 27th, so grab some tanning oil to amplify a sick goggle tan this summer.
Whistler made news this week when it announced that it will blow snow on the Hortman Glacier to prevent further melting of the ice.
