      Impeccable conditions for experts and freeriders!

      When expert skiers and freeriders look at the trail map, they might expect to find their paradise at Whistler Blackcomb – and they won’t be disappointed. With so many black diamond and double black diamond runs, one of the biggest challenges is deciding which one to take.

      On Whistler, freeriders will be best served in the area around the Peak chairlift. We especially recommend the Whistler, West and Bagel bowls. If you’re still not worn out after those, give the nearby Dusty’s Descent, Big Timber or Homerun (all of which run back down to Creekside’s base terminal) a go. Further highlights on Whistler are the Flute Bowls, which you can access via a ca. 20 minute trip on the Symphony Express chairlift.

      There are countless opportunities to hit some ungroomed slopes on Blackcomb Mountain. Our double black favorites (including Garnet Bowl, Sapphire Bowl and Diamond Bowl) can be accessed by taking Spanky’s Ladder at the upper terminal of the Glacier Express. Those in the Jersey Cream Bowl, such as Couloir Extreme, deliver the ultimate powder challenge – assuming a good snowfall, of course.

      A number of short black diamonds throughout the rest of the ski area are also great options to get your powder or glade fix. If after all of that you’re still left looking for your next challenge, you may want to look into the Whistler Blackcomb’s Heli-Skiing packages. More information can be found here:

      A real gymnasium. Generally a solid reliable snow-pack. Pull yo' pants up.
