Once upon a time, only beginners rented skis, and the rental equipment was old and badly beaten up. But these days, ski rental programs are keeping up with the rapid improvements in ski equipment and rental shops are upgrading their inventory every couple of years to stay current. With these improvements, and the rising cost of transporting skis adding wild expenditures to already pricey winter vacations, some—even the very gnarliest skiers—are considering leaving their favorite skis at home and renting on site. Renting at the mountain gives you the option to demo the latest ski technology, including shapes and sizes you might otherwise be wary of buying at the shop. For instance, at Vail, Colo. That kind of promotion can be enticing, but is it for you?
Key holiday periods sell out fast. If you are new to the sport of skiing or snowboarding let the Whistler Blackcomb Snow School take care of the introduction. Whistler Blackcomb has one of the best learning areas in North America and that combined with their top pros will make your first experience a perfect beginning to life on the mountains. You will learn the basics including: Equipment and how it works Safety on the mountain How to move around on flat terrain How to stop How to turn How to ride lifts If you are looking for a smaller size class, we highly recommend our MAX4 Program maximum of 4 students in a class. Whistler ski lessons and snowboard lessons are MAX 4. Having a maximum of 4 people in a group lesson creates the perfect environment to build your confidence while you learn and discover the incredible mountains. Private Lessons can be booked for up to 4 participants of the same discipline and ability level.
From Whistler Mountain, experienced skiers and snowboarders will be able to enjoy the black and red runs covered with excellent quality light powder snow. From the top of the mountain, you will even be able to jump from small cliffs and set out along the vertiginous off-piste runs! Blackcomb Mountain offers an altitude difference of more than 1, metres! These two mountains offer exceptional quality skiing and lively debates can be heard discussing which is the best. Thanks to the Vancouver Winter Olympics, new infrastructure has been installed, such as bobsleigh and sledge runs, cross-country trails, a ski jump and a large snowpark!
