In the crown jewel of winter surveys, Ski Magazine’s 20,000 skiers and snowboarders from around North America have voted Whistler-Blackcomb the best ski resort in North America. Now on its 26th year, the Ski Magazine list of top 60 resorts is to come out later this month in local newsstands. Blackcomb-Whistler ranked highly in several individual categories ranging from Terrain Variety to On-Mountain Food and Digital Presence.
Looking to continue improving its standing in the ski/snowboarding community; Whistler Blackcomb has various enhancements ready to launch for the 2012-2013 Winter Season. New to Whistler mountain this year is an enhanced start area with the introduction of ‘Wonder Routes’ designed as a network of trails and tours for new visitors to the mountain. Corresponding to the introduction of Wonder Routes is also Whistler Blackcomb’s new digital campaign called “Wonder Reels”.
Whistler Blackcomb Mountain Improves Digital Experience…
Whistler Blackcomb’s mobile app called, The Whistler Blackcomb Live, will get new features this season that include weather whistler alerts such as fresh powder updates for guests, speed and vertical tracking, and the ability for skiers and snowboarders to track their runs via GPS. New social enhancements to the app will also allow skiers and snowboarders to take and share photos on Facebook and Twitter.
To improve their on-mountain services, Whistler Blackcomb is upgrading its feet by purchasing three new park cats. The new equipment, meant to replace their aging seven snow cats, is designed to provide consistent high-quality Whistler mountain experiences for guests.
