Cheap Whistler Lift Tickets – $85

Cheap Whistler Lift Tickets

ski whistler

I always go to 7/11 to buy lift tickets before heading to the hill, there is one in Squamish on the way up

Courtesy of http://www.whistler-vacation-tips.com/cheap-lift-tickets-for-whistler.html, a cheaper way is offered:

The tickets are sold by the Students’ Union at Capilano University in North Vancouver. I called them the other day to clarify some of the details and here they are:

Cost

As I mentioned earlier, the cost of the tickets are $85 including tax. That’s $11.26 cheaper than comparable 7-11 Whistler tickets which sell for $96.26 including tax. They do not sell any Senior/Youth or Children’s tickets. If you want these type of tickets I recommend trying our Ticket Wizard or going to a 7-11 store.

Availability

These cheap lift tickets for Whistler are available to anyone. In other words you do not have to be a student of the university. I was also told that there were no restrictions on the number of tickets that you can purchase at one time either.

Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort Opening Date

Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort Opening Date

whistler opening date

Scheduled opening day for both Whistler and Blackcomb mountains is November 27, 2016

Whistler Mountain opens Nov 24, 2016 closes Apr 23, 2017
Blackcomb Mountain opens Nov 24, 2016 closes May 22, 2017

Opening dates are VERY tentative, and can be changed drastically, depending on snow dumps!

Historically, Whistler almost always opens between November 20-27th

As of today, Whistler snow report shows -2 degrees celcius at the very peak (2180 mretres) and upcoming Whiter;l Village temperatures around 18-19 degrees

Winter is still a few months away!

This Sept-November period is an amazing time to visit Whistler, bt – with cheap room rates, smaller crowds (though Whistler is NEVER empty with nothing to do) and restaurant deals as they try and bring inANYBODY to keep the staff occupied and generate revenues!

Cheap rooms, cheap food, still sensational views, and smaller lineups – and depending on when you come, still great weather as the resort moves from Summer to Winter operations.

Whistler Ski Area is Almost Impossible to Imagine!

Whistler ski area is amazing. Larger than 4700 football fields with more than 200 unbelievable runs to thrill you. But it is so very beautiful and vast you really must see it to put it into the right perspective.

Whistler ski area is easy to say. But it is so very beautiful and vast you really must see it to put it into the right perspective.

Probably the best view would be from a helicopter, and tours can be arranged.

Another way to see the mountains is to ride the gondolas up to the mountains and walk or ski around. To experience every trail run in a week you would need to ski 30 trails each day.

Let’s look at it this way. Whistler ski area, if it were a country would be larger than Vatican City, Monaco and Nauru (south sea island country) combined with plenty of acres left over.

Imagine if you will, a neat little house with a nice green lawn, flower beds and a beautiful rose bush with American Beauty roses framing the home, on a city lot in Washington DC.

Now imagine a solid row of identical houses stretching from that little home in Washington, all the way to Peoria Illinois, a distance of 714 miles. That is the size of the Whistler ski terrain available.

The more than 200 runs on the two mountains take skiers all over the ski area. Beautiful little valleys, wide open areas way up there well above the tree line. Each run is unique.

At The Peak, a skier may plunge down a diamond run or opt for the easier 11 km (6.5 mile) long intermediate run to the right.

An extensive inventory of top quality skis and boots await skiers at Whistler ski rental shops. The whole family can be outfitted.

More than 9.14 meters (30 feet) of snow falls on whistler each year, beautifully plastering the trees and creating an amazing winter wonderland.

No less than 34 lifts take skiers up and away quickly, this avoiding long line-ups. You ski down a nice run, spot a lift with a bit of a line-up. No problem. Simply continue to the nest one. They appear to be everywhere.

The restaurants are very popular on the mountains. You should have some way to identify your skis or snowboard, because with hundreds of skiers descending upon the ski racks at once, it may be tough to find yours

The Whistler/Blackcomb Canadian Ski Patrol do an amazing job at ensuring the skiers and snowboarders go home safely. However, accidents will happen and they are there to look to your every needs.

Of course, if your family is similar to ours, we love to meet and socialize and what better place to do so than the Whistler ski area trails.

Words alone cannot describe the mountain layout. There are two wonderful whistler ski maps available. One for the adults and a fantastic one for the children. They are both interactive and the best maps I have ever seen.

Whistler operates from late November to late June. Glacier skiing runs until Late July.

Blackcomb mountain has a vertical drop of 5,280 feet, the highest in North America.

Whistler mountain has a vertical drop of 5,020 feet.

If you are feeling a little timid about your skiing abilities, and possibly thinking a whistler ski vacation may be a little too daring for you, never fear. My wife Irma and I had very little ski experience at first. Especially Irma. An hour on the bunny hill and I talked her into trying one of the easy beginner slopes. In no time she loved it. We were both 56 years young at the time.

Whistler ski area. You will love it and it will love you.

Joe and Irma Mac Millan have enjoyed the Whistler Mountain and valley area of British Columbia for many years. They have camped, hiked and skied the mountains and fished and kayaked the rivers and lakes. Their website Whistler-Outdoors is a must visit for anyone considering a trip to Whistler as well as the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. They invite one and all to take a look.
