Join one of our hotel ambassadors for an unforgettable introduction to the best skiing and riding at Whistler Blackcomb. Intermediate skiers will be directed to less congested runs from the top, longer laps, and breathtaking views. For advanced skiers, it’s like a backstage pass to hidden powder stashes, fabulous tree skiing, and backcountry adventures. Mountain excursions are weather and snow-dependent, and all skiers/riders must be at an intermediate level or above to participate. *Tour does not include lift passes.
