An internationally acclaimed alpine skiing destination as well as a popular summer destination, Whistler attracts more than two million visitors per year.
Alpine skiing is a popular winter activity in many parts of the world and many visitors come to Whistler to experience the world class facilities it has to offer. The two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb combine to make more than 8,000 acres of skiable terrain. The mountains are serviced by 38 lifts giving skiers access to the beautiful scenery seen from the mountain tops and a huge variety of skiing levels.
During the 2010 Winter Olympics and Paralympics, Whistler will be hosting the alpine skiing events which will take place on Whistler Mountain. The brand new Whistler Sliding Centre on Blackcomb Mountain will be the venue for the bobsleigh, luge, and skeleton events.
