Whistler Blackcomb Trail Map Guide

Skiiers and snowboarders can choose from six different types of routes along the Whistler Blackcomb trail system. The first route is the Powder Stashes Route. This route is amongst many trees and it is the perfect place to be on a snowy day. A few choices for this route are Upper Gear Jammer, Expressway to Where’s Joe, Arthur’s Choice, and Lower Excelerator Zone.

Family and child friendly skiing

The Family Certified Route is for beginners and children. Kids get to show off their skills to their parents as they zip around the slopes and practice their pizza’s and french fries. Make sure you take you kids to Rendezvous Nintendo Game Lounge, The School Yard, Magic Castle, Enchanted Forest, and the Tree Fort. There’s a ton of great places for kids that are a bit on the slow side, though keep your head on a swivel. Kids are known for taking out peoples legs by accident. You’ve been warned!

Ski Olympic Trails

On the Gold Medal Route, skiers get to frolic in the snow in the same places where the 2010 Olympians did. Everyone will want to see the Roundhouse Olympic Display and the Olympic Rings while getting the chance to ski either the Men’s or Women’s Olympic Downhill routes.

Intermediate ski routes

Intermediate skiers will find quite a bit of variety on the slopes in the Size Matters Route. Everyone can ski slopes from peak to peak, however they may feel the burn afterwards. Skiers can hit the slopes on the Blackcomb Glacier, Whistler Peak, and Peak to Creek before heading to Merlin’s Bar and Grill or Dusty’s Bar and BBQ for a drink and much needed fuel.
