Frequently Asked Questions

What's new at Whistler Blackcomb?

Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass information

Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass information

What is the Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass?

The Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass is a new customizable set of pass products for the 2020/21 season offering expanded value and flexibility for guests who are looking to ski exclusively at Whistler Blackcomb. Guests purchasing the Day Pass in advance of the season will lock in an incredible discount of up to 50% over window lift ticket prices, while customizing their trip by selecting the number of days they plan to ski or ride – from one day to ten days – and whether to add unrestricted access during peak periods. The discount for the Day Pass increases with each additional day a guest plans to ski or ride. Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass purchasers can use their days anytime throughout the 2020/21 season at Whistler Blackcomb. The Day Pass is non-transferable and non-refundable.

What is the difference between the Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass and a lift ticket?

The Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass is a product that provides expanded value and flexibility over lift tickets. With savings of up to 50% as compared to lift tickets for guests purchasing in advance of the season, the Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass also offers flexibility to choose when you ski throughout the season and doesn’t need to be used consecutively, whereas lift tickets must be used on specific dates. The Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass is non-refundable and non-transferable, consistent with season passes.

Does the Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass include cancellation coverage?

Epic Coverage is included FREE (for all pass holders including Day Pass products) and provides refunds associated with certain personal events, including illness, job loss and injury. It also expands coverage to protect you from certain resort closures, such as any due to COVID-19. Beyond this coverage, all Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass products are non-transferrable, non-refundable and are bound by the Whistler Blackcomb Season Pass and EDGE Card Cancellation policy.

Will I need to reserve my ski days when I purchase a Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass?

Yes, Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass holders will be required to make a reservation before arriving at the mountain. Throughout the season, pass holders will be able to make as many week-of reservations as their pass and availability allow. In addition to week-of reservations, pass holders will have the opportunity to book up to seven Priority Reservation Days for the core season (December 8 - April 4), or as many days of access as they have on their pass if less than seven. The booking window for Priority Reservation Days will open November 6 and will be exclusive to pass holders until December 7.

Will I still be able to purchase a lift ticket when the ski season starts?

Yes, lift tickets will go on sale on December 8, with sales limited based on the number of spaces available for any given day after our exclusive pass holder reservation period. This season, lift tickets will be sold with a reservation for a specific resort on a specific date. Given the need to manage lift tickets sales, they will only be sold on Whistler Blackcomb's website and call centres. No lift tickets will be sold at the ticket window in resort – you may only pick up your pre-purchased lift ticket at our ticket windows. Guests will be encouraged to purchase in advance, though guests can purchase a same day lift ticket online or by phone, subject to availability, and then pick up the lift ticket at the ticket window.

Will I need to wear a face covering on the ski hill?

Yes, guests are required to wear face coverings in every part of mountain operations, which includes loading and riding in chairlifts and gondolas, when inside all buildings, and during all ski and snowboard lessons. No one will be permitted on the mountain without a face covering. We also strongly recommend that guests wear face coverings in all indoor and outdoor public spaces throughout our resort and will continue to encourage our community to make this a requirement. Being safe and successful this season will require everyone’s cooperation and we believe face coverings are foundational to making that possible.

Pass Holder Reservation System

For your safety, Whistler Blackcomb will be managing how many people are on the mountain this season and implementing a pass holder reservation system. Reservations will be required to access the both mountains. For the vast majority of days, Whistler Blackcomb anticipates they will be able to accommodate everyone who wants to ski or ride at our resort. This reservation system is designed to give you peace of mind knowing that you will have the space you need to feel safe and physically distanced, no matter what day you visit.

Reservation System FAQs

Why is there a reservation system for the 2020/21 ski season?

Why are Whistler Blackcomb implementing a reservation system?

For your safety, Whistler Blackcomb are managing on-mountain access this season. To ensure physical distancing is possible, Whistler Blackcomb will be managing the number of guests on-mountain. For the vast majority of days, it is expected that it will not be an issue for anyone to access our mountains. Reservations will be required every day of the season at every resort for all pass holders. Pass holders will have priority access to book their preferred days during the season, and lift tickets will not go on sale until Dec 8, 2020.

How are the capacity maximums determined by the resort?

Whistler Blackcomb will be assessing capacity based on a variety of factors to determine the capacity across each of our resorts by taking into account factors such as operating plans, local regulations, weather conditions, size of resort, historic visitation numbers and our own operating experience to estimate the number of guests we can accommodate for safe physical distancing. Capacity maximums will vary based on the above factors and may change based on certain other factors, including government regulations or operational ability.

How will the reservation system work?

Do I have to make a reservation to be able to use my pass?

Yes, this season, Whistler Blackcomb will be implementing a reservation system for every day of the season. It is possible that at some point in the season we may decide that we no longer need the reservation system. However, with so many uncertainties, we believe it is prudent to have this system in place now. The reservation system is designed to provide confidence to pass holders to know when they will be able to use their pass. Pass holders will be required to make a reservation, whereas for lift ticket purchasers, the reservation will be automatically included as part of their purchase. When you purchase a lift ticket for this season, it will include a reservation for a specific date, and therefore there is no need to make any further reservation.

When will I be able to make my reservations for the season?

2020/21 pass holders can start making reservations online beginning November 6, 2020 for the Core Season (from December 8, 2020 to Easter, April 4, 2021). For Early Season (all days prior to December 8, 2020), Whistler Blackcomb will release reservation inventory for the upcoming week based on conditions and terrain availability. Lift tickets will go on sale December 8, 2020. When you purchase your lift ticket this season, it will include a reservation for a specific resort and specific date, and therefore there is no need to make any further reservation. We will not be selling lift tickets during Early Season. The best value for early season skiing and riding is a Whistler Blackcomb Day Pass (save up to 50% off daily lift tickets).

How do I make a reservation?

Pass holders will be able to make a reservation online at epicpass.com by logging in to My Account or over the phone. Additional information will be provided by early November.

How many days can I reserve at one time?

Every pass holder will be offered Priority Reservation Days for the Core Season for the number of days of access on each of their passes, up to 7 Priority Reservation Days. As pass holders use their Priority Reservation Days, they can book additional reservations, maintaining up to 7 reservations (or however many days of access are remaining on their pass(es)) at a given time.

In addition, pass holders will be able to make as many week-of reservations (or however many days of access are remaining on their pass) within a week of their desired ski or ride day, subject to availability and their pass access on that day.

Pass holders will be able to make as many reservations in Early Season as available, based on capacity and pass access. Reservations will be made available on a weekly basis for the upcoming week of skiing, and these reservations do not count towards pass holders Priority Reservation Days for the Core Season. It is expected that for many days throughout the season, pass holders will be able to make a reservation within the week of their desired date.

Do pass holders get first access to reservations?

Yes. In the Early Season, pass holders will be the only guests on the mountain and lift tickets will not be for sale. Pass holders will have exclusive access to make reservations for the Core Season from November 6, 2020 through December 7, 2020 to reserve up to 7 Priority Reservation Days or the number of days available on their pass, up to 7 days. During this window, there will be no daily lift tickets sold for the Core Season, giving pass holders priority access.

What do I need to bring to the resort on the day of my reservation?

Booking a reservation will turn on and off your pass access for that day, so there will be no need for pass holders to bring anything but their pass and they will be able to access the mountain as usual. If you purchase a lift ticket this season, it will include a reservation for a specific resort and specific date, and therefore there is no need to make any further reservation. As a result, you only need to bring your lift ticket as you normally would to access the mountain.
