Mobile Pass Technology at Whistler Blackcomb for 2024/25 Season

Whistler Blackcomb announced that hands-free Mobile Pass and Mobile Lift Tickets technology will go live at the resort for the 2024/25 ski and ride season within the My Epic app. This innovation will allow guests to skip the ticket window and buy their Pass (or lift ticket) online, then activate and store it in the My Epic app. When they arrive, they can get scanned, hands-free, straight from their pocket via low energy Bluetooth technology designed for low energy use. With this enhancement, the My Epic app will provide guests a one-stop app, offering lift access, real-time resort updates, personalized stats, account information, and more.

What's New in the Village and Valley

Rejuvenated Rainbow Park Now Open

The rejuvenation project is nearly complete and has transformed Rainbow Park into a more accessible, green and enjoyable space for everyone. One of the standout features of the rejuvenation is the expanded and improved beach and docks. Visitors will now enjoy a larger, more welcoming beach area with additional seating and picnic spots, and accessible pathways to ensure everyone can enjoy the beach and lake. Reduced parking will be available until mid-July and while the main rejuvenation is complete, some work will continue through the fall. There will be no further Valley Trail closures at Rainbow Park during this period. Learn more at whistler.ca.
