Thanks to the ideal conditions on Blackcomb’s Horstman Glacier, you can even ski and snowboard during the summer. This makes it one of the best ski resort areas in North America! Other popular pastimes include hiking, snowshoeing, snow tubing, and mountain biking.

The Peak 2 Peak Gondola provides an elevated and exciting ride between the two mountains encompassing Whistler Blackcomb resort.
