- As most other resorts ramp down and close for the season, Whistler Blackcomb kicks spring skiing into full gear. Spring skiing continues on Blackcomb Mountain through Sunday, June 8. With a current snow base of 265cm and 3,000 to 2,500 acres remaining open for May and the first week of June, spring is shaping up to be as epic as the rest of the season.
Started from Monday, April 21 access to Blackcomb Mountain will be from Excalibur Gondola in Whistler Village. The lifts open for skiing will be Excalibur Gondola, Excelerator Chair, Jersey Cream Express, 7th Heaven Express, Glacier Express, and Horstman T-bar. Crystal Chair will open on weekends, but the skiing and riding in the Crystal Zone will remain open, accessible by Glacier Express, seven days a week as the ski out allows. Mountain hours of operation are 9am to 4pm with the last upload from the valley at 4pm.
Wizard Chair and Solar Coaster Chair will be closed for maintenance through June 8, reopening on June 9 for glacier skiing and sightseeing June 9 through July 27 on Blackcomb Mountain.
Blackcomb Mountain will have an exciting new terrain park through to the end of May in the Jersey Cream area featuring a mix of small, medium as well as large jibs and jumps built for the Orage Masters. The Nintendo Highest Level Park is closed to accommodate Peak 2 Peak construction, as such there will be no XL jumps requiring an extra pass.
Throughout the spring, the most current lift and operations schedule will be available on
, the Snow Report and the Today on the Mountain. Check in regularly for the most up to date operation information.
