Consistent with last season, Whistler Blackcomb will limit lift tickets every day throughout the 2023/24 winter season to preserve the guest experience for Pass Holders. If tickets are sold out online, guests will not be able to purchase them at ticket windows. Passes, including Whistler Blackcomb Day Passes, will not be restricted beyond any peak dates excluded on a restricted pass. There will also be no impact to guests who enroll in ski and snowboard lessons that include lift access, or to Pass Holder benefit tickets. 
Whistler Blackcomb is scheduled to open this week on November 23. Six resorts across Vail Resorts’ portfolio of mountain resorts – Vail, Breckenridge, Keystone, Park City, Stowe and Okemo – have already opened for the season with the right combination of snow, cold temperatures, snowmaking, and hard work by the company’s passionate team members. The season will continue through the spring, with Whistler Blackcomb and Breckenridge planning to stay open into May.
Debuting at Whistler Blackcomb this season, the Fitzsimmons Express will be replaced with a high-speed, 8-person chairlift – the first of its kind across Vail Resorts’ North American resorts. The upgrade will help reduce lift line wait times out of the base at Skier’s Plaza in Whistler Village, increasing uphill capacity and improving circulation in the mid-mountain area. 
Guest experiences at Whistler Blackcomb will include The Gondola Gallery by Epic: an outdoor art installation and film series that celebrates the unique backgrounds of skiers and snowboarders. Vail Resorts commissioned artists to create art-wrapped gondola cabins as a visual representation of the different ways skiers and snowboarders experience the mountains. These one-of-a-kind art installations are an invitation and a message of inclusion to all.
Whistler Blackcomb is located on the unceded territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) and Lilwat7úl (Lil’wat Nation). In celebration and appreciation of the history, art and culture of the Squamish and Lil’wat people, WINGS OF THUNDER, created by Chepximiya Siyam’ Janice George and Skwetsimeltxw Willard ‘Buddy’ Joseph, and RED, created by Levi Nelson, will wrap two of the cabins of Whistler Blackcomb’s Peak 2 Peak Gondola.
Images of the final artwork and the film series at Whistler Blackcomb will be released in the spring of 2024.
