Whistler Blackcomb resort has done an excellent job managing the large snow base from the main Winter season. Skiers and snowboarders still enjoy going right to the base of Blackcomb mountain on the managed snow track. Being able to go from the top of the 7th Heaven area down to the base of Blackcomb Mountain is a great experience. Whistler Blackcomb resort is open for the Spring season until May 28, 2012. Purchase your mountain lift tickets when you book your vacation accommodations from ResortQuest Whistler.
