Whistler Blackcomb Announces Winter 2022/23 Opening Day
Whistler Blackcomb has announced that lifts will begin spinning for guests on Thursday, November 24, and with one of the longest ski and ride seasons anywhere, the resort anticipates remaining open through May 22, conditions permitting. Construction continues on upgrades to the Creekside Gondola and Big Red Express, both of which are on-track to open in time for this year’s ski and ride season.
As travel restrictions ease and international guests return, Whistler Blackcomb looks forward to welcoming back visitors from around the world. The upcoming season sees the return of more robust on-mountain dining and Ski & Ride school options. Guests are encouraged to purchase their lift tickets or Epic Pass product in advance, as the number of lift tickets will be limited each day in order to prioritize the guest experience.

Construction of New Lift and Gondola Out of Whistler Creekside
Creekside is closed for bike park access in Summer 2022 due to a major construction project to upgrade the Creekside Gondola and the Big Red Express Chairlift for the Winter 2022/23 season. The project allows for exponential growth of the Creek Zone trail network in years to come. Stay tuned to Whistler Blackcomb’s social channels, as they will highlight all the big construction moments, listing daily trail closures and re-routes as needed for construction.
