Whistler Blackcomb is now officially open for the 2022-23 winter season

With lots to look forward to, there have been some operations changes you should be aware of to get the most out of the winter season.  Keep reading to learn what you need to know!

La Niña is back! 

We already are seeing lots of fluffy white snow in the village, we can expect this to continue throughout the winter. Woohoo! See my past blog post on La Niña to learn more about this weather phenomenon.

Prepare for Crowds!

Tourism Whistler is protecting one of the busiest seasons on the books.  Hotels, tour companies, restaurants, and other key tourist industries in town have the most preseason bookings in history. 

Be sure to make reservations early, give yourself extra time to account for traffic, and buy tickets in advance to make your visit more enjoyable! Don’t take your chances this year, book in early!

Creekside Gondola Project Delay

The latest projects to replace Big Red Chair and the Creekside Gondola are NOT going to be ready for opening day.

Supply chain and shipping issues are responsible for this, but the main tow line is now at the base and is being installed. It is unclear when the project will be completed. Fingers crossed it’s done by the busy Christmas break!

Plan to upload from the Upper Village or Main Village until further notice- there is a shuttle from Creekside if you do plan on parking there with a 15-minute priority upload.

Pack snacks, water, and extra layers so you can be comfortable in longer lines than usual.

Are you coming to Whistler this season?
