The Fairmont Chateau Whistler is ideally situated at the base of Blackcomb Mountain - you can step right outside the back door and onto the lifts, offering ski-in/ski-out ease along with breathtaking views and spectacular quality and luxury.

With the Whistler lifts only 7 minutes away and several cross-country ski trails within an easy walking distance, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler is a skier's dream resort.  When you add in the Fairmont Hotels reputation for impeccable service and outstanding cuisine and luxury, it's easy to see why the Fairmont Chateau Whistler was named the #1 Ski Resort in North American by readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine.

Whistler and Blackcomb mountains offer more world class skiing than anywhere in North America.  For the 2004/05 winter season, Whistler Blackcomb invested $14.2 million in on-mountain improvements, introduced 1,100 acres of new terrain on Whistler Mountain, unveiled a fully redeveloped Creekside base, hosted the 2005 Snowboard World Championships, and launched a Superpipe on Blackcomb Mountain, lit for night skiing and riding.

With over 8,100 skiable acres, more than 200 trails, 33 lifts, 12 alpine bowls, and over 300 inches of average annual snowfall, Whistler Blackcomb is some of the best skiing or riding to be had anywhere.
