The survey, which is in its 29th year, included over 15,000 entries from all over. As one of the ski media’s highest honors, Vail Resorts CEO Rob Katz is undoubtedly stoked on the ranking as they look to add the BC giant to its epic pass after this season.
“We consider SKI Magazine’s No. 1 ranking three years in a row a massive victory towards making that a reality. Whistler as a community is dedicated to providing an outstanding guest experience and it’s nice to see the public opinion reflecting these efforts.”– Dave Brownlie, President and CEO Whistler Blackcomb
While the resort’s overall win will likely grab the headlines, Whistler Blackcomb also claimed #1 in Terrain Variety and Off-Hill Activities. They came in second for après and lodging.
