Ski & Snowboard Guide to Whistler Blackcomb: Intermediate Edition
Where the heck is Winky Pop? Or Bernie's Bumps? Or Calvin and Hobbes? Where does the Grey Zone end and CBC begin? How do you get to Teetering? Shall I bring trunks if I meet you at Hot Tub?
One of the great ironies about skiing and riding at Whistler-Blackcomb is the relative anonymity of the two biggest ski hills in North America. A number of years ago, I was struck with the results of Snow Country's annual reader poll. While Whistler-Blackcomb was their favorite and got the highest marks for terrain, almost no one could name their fav run on either mountain.
And it's a syndrome not unknown to locals either. I've lost track of the number of times someone's told me, "You've just gotta ski this run I found. Don't know what it's called but here's how you get to it." Whistler skiing books.
