Whistler and Blackcomb are two side-by-side mountains which offer some of the best skiing in the world. This ski resort has one of the longest ski seasons in North America and next season is expected to be a strong La Nina which brings excellent snow fall in Whistler and Blackcomb. La Nina means that temperatures will be lower than average with abundant snowfall.
