Whistler Awards & Accolades

January 16, 2015 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Uncategorized

Whistler Blackcomb & Whistler Resort Continue to Win Awards.

Awards from magazines, websites, TV stations pour in from around the world in 2015.

Whether you put a lot of faith into awards or not, you must admit that there’s some merit in paying attention to big trends or patterns.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for a decade, you must have noticed a fairly conspicuous trend at Whistler Resort. Trend might even be an understatement. An avalanche of sorts, really.

OK, I’ll just come right out and say it, already… Whistler Blackcomb wins tons of awards and accolades.

Whistler Blackcomb has been ranked number one on an Active Times list of the 50 best ski resorts in North America. The New York–based magazine had readers vote on 103 nominated resorts out of more than 600 ski areas across the continent.

Here are the winning B.C. spots, with their ranking:

Whistler Blackcomb (No. 1)
Big White Ski Resort (No. 18)
Revelstoke Mountain Resort (No. 22)
Red Mountain Resort (No. 31)
Fernie Alpine Resort (No. 39)


“With the most ski-able acres on the continent, Whistler Blackcomb is the full package of adrenaline, good snow-conditions, stellar dining and accommodation and proximity to the city (122 km).”
