Are you considering taking your first ski trip this winter? If you're looking for a place that's exciting and highly but also appropriate for beginners, then you should plan to ski in Whistler! Read on to find out why Whistler is the ideal resort for beginner skiers.
Whistler Blackcomb is the biggest ski resort in North America and is considered one of the best ski resorts in the world. It is immensely popular- largely due to its scenic and diverse terrain. With all of its accolades, you would think it would cater exclusively to professional-level skiers, but this couldn't be further from the truth! While Whistler does have plenty of terrain for advanced skiers, there are also many runs specifically for beginners.
Whistler's size and reputation give it a few advantages that beginner skiers will appreciate. One advantage is that the ski school at Whistler Blackcomb is extremely well organized and is staffed by incredible skiers. It is easy to find classes that suit your schedule and experience level!
Another huge advantage of skiing Whistler Blackcomb is that the beginner areas are well-groomed and wide-open! Most important of all, the beginner runs are plentiful. Since the resort covers 8,100 acres, green runs can be found in a range of locations, at various altitudes. Unlike at some smaller resorts, beginner skiers can tackle runs that go on for miles, or ski close to the mountain's summit! Some runs are designated as slow zones, so beginners can feel more confident skiing in an area with a speed limit.
If you're bringing the kids on the trip, then you'll love Whistler Blackcomb's family zone. This area is a designated place for families looking to practice their ski skills.
What are you waiting for?! Come visit Whistler and build your confidence on the slopes! You'll be a pro in no time!
