2022 Whistler #1
SEPT 15-18, 2022
The newest addition to the 29029 family, Whistler is consistently ranked the #1 ski resort in North America. Gaining almost 4,000 feet of vert per hike, this is the longest ascent of the 29029 mountains, meaning just 8 ascents are needed. Ascend through breathtaking old-growth coastal rainforest terrain to emerge on top of one of the most iconic mountains on the continent. Note that all Whistler #1 participants will be staying at the 4-star Fairmont Hotel in Whistler village, directly across from the base area!
The Blackcomb Ascent Trails are three interconnected hiking trails that wander through breathtaking old growth coastal rainforest terrain on singletrack trails. This route includes scenic forested sections that cross bridges over small creeks while also hiking up ski hills from Whistler’s valley bottom to the alpine on Blackcomb Mountain.
