Whistler is one of the snowboard resorts on every snowboarders bucket list. With over 200 trails spread across 8000 acres, it’s the biggest resort in Canada and boasts a silly amount of space to learn the basics.
One of the biggest draws for beginners visiting Whistler is the fact you can ride almost the whole mountain, from top to bottom, on green and blue runs so you don’t feel like you’re contained in just one area. This ‘whole mountain’ experience will do wonders for your confidence and with a bit of practice, you’ll be moving onto steeper terrain before you know it.
Unlike Europe, the ski patrol out here really do crack down on dangerous skiers and snowboarders, so there’s no danger of out of control teenagers cutting you up and ruining your day.
