Planning Your Ski Vacation

09/05/2020 | by harmonywhistler | Vacation Rentals

Planning your ski vacations in Whistler will be a little different this year, however, the most important thing is that the mountain will be open. With a little help from mother nature, we are all hopeful that 2020 / 2021 will be another epic winter carving up the slopes.

Whistler Blackcomb will be putting safety first, and thanks to COVID-19 this does mean limiting the number of guests accessing the mountains. With this in mind they will be introducing a pass holder reservation system. Not only will you need a pass but reservations will be required to access the mountains. This includes all season pass and day pass holders of all types. You will be able to view real-time availability and make reservations all in one place, on Reservations will activate your pass for the selected days; no need to bring anything but your pass to get access to the mountain. The reservation window opens November 6.


We are super blessed to have some of the largest terrain in North America. Based on this Vail resorts anticipate that everyone who wants to ski will be able to do so on most days. To keep the mountains we love open, they need to ensure social distancing and monitor the number of guests accessing the ski area keeping everyone safe and healthy.


Kindly note, face coverings will be mandatory to access the mountain which in most cases are part of your ski or snowboard attire anyway. With everyone’s patience and cooperation, we can all enjoy a healthy and happy winter.
