The sister resorts of Whistler and Blackcomb offer more than 8,000 acres of skiable terrain, including 200 marked runs and countless powder stashes and cliff lines, 14 alpine bowls, three glaciers, an average annual snowfall of 465 inches, and one of the longest ski seasons in North America. The nightlife in the village can keep you just as busy. Locals like to head to Girabaldi Lift Co. Bar and Grill, located above the Gondola Building, which boasts amazing mountain views and live music. There's also Merlins and Dusty's Bar and BBQ, the oldest bar in the village. Both offer a festive vibe no matter what day of the week. The best part: The entire village core is pedestrian only — so no need to designate a driver.
Best For: The buddy trip.
