It may be August, but the summer heat shouldn’t deter guests from thinking about winter — especially those who want to ensure they get the most bang for their ski vacation buck. Whistler Blackcomb, North America’s top ski destination, has invested in a major lift expansion for the upcoming winter season with Whistler Mountain’s Harmony high-speed quad chairlift being replaced with a new Doppelmayr high-speed detachable six-pack chairlift capable of transporting six people on each chair. Blackcomb Mountain will see a lift enhancement with a new high-speed quad chairlift which will replace the existing fix-grip triple chair in that zone.

Opening for the winter each November and offering spectacular snow and sun conditions throughout the spring (not to mention glacier skiing and riding in the summer), Whistler has one of the longest ski seasons in North America and averages nearly 12 metres of snowfall annually.
