With these two additions, Whistler Blackcomb is officially 100 per cent open, offering 8,171 acres of terrain and a mile of vertical,” says Stuart Rempel (Dave, Doug Mac?), Whistler Blackcomb’s vice president of marketing and sales.

With winter in full swing at Whistler Blackcomb, an array of products, services, and experiences accompany the acreage and vertical, all adding to the mountain experience.
