Whistler Blackcomb open for business – Get your skis on, it’s great out there!

The sun is shining, the snow is great and more than 90 per cent of Whistler Blackcomb terrain is open. It’s still more terrain than any other ski resort in North America.

The only closed runs are in the area of the race course on Whistler Mountain along with the training runs on both mountains. With immaculate grooming and plenty of room on the slopes, now is the time to make the most of the Olympic mountains in your backyard. Everything from ski lessons to on-mountain restaurants are also open.

If you’re glued to your TV watching Olympic events, don’t worry, you won’t miss a thing on the mountains. With Whistler Blackcomb’s special viewing pods located alongside the Men’s and Ladies’ race courses on Whistler Mountain, you can catch Olympic action. You can literally feel the wind from the racers.

For the women’s courses, skiers have been enjoying viewing pods along Wild Card and Franz’s Run. Pods along Orange Peel and Express Way offer a glimpse of the men’s courses. For a detailed map of these locations, please check out whistlerblackcomb.com/olympics.

With the Ladies Super G scheduled for today and the Men’s Super Combined for Sunday, there is plenty of action.

A reminder that the Creekside Gondola is closed to the public during the month of February but residents and guests can access the lifts in Whistler Village or the Blackcomb Base with the enhanced BC Transit system.

The popular Peak to Creek run remains open throughout the Games as a ski-out to Creekside. Please note: Peak to Creek is only a ski out during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games time as there is no upload from Creekside base when the Creekside Gondola is closed ( February 1 to March 1, 2010.)

So grab your gear and get out and enjoy the beautiful blue skies and slopes. Take our word for it, you won’t regret it.
