Whistler Blackcomb, B.C.

Whistler Blackcomb is the undeniable king of North American skiing, with the most skiable terrain in the entire continent. So it can easily cater to pretty much every appetite. Families will love the wide boulevards that define the pedestrian village, with loads of lodging, dining and non-ski activities as well as one of the best ski schools around. The terrain for entry- and mid-level skiers and riders are equally inviting.  Experts, meanwhile, can dive deep into the resort’s plentiful powder by trying to dominate the double-blacks of Blackcomb Mountain before traversing over to Whistler on the Peak-2-Peak tram. Grommers and freeskiers will find heaven here as well, with some of the highest-rated terrain parks going.  And if you’re appetite leans toward the luxe and pampered, Whistler delivers that as well, with top-notch accommodations, day spas and haute cuisine. Other resorts should have it so good.
