Tailor-Made Whistler Ski Holidays
Whistler ski trips, by Whistler locals
Ski Whistler like a local
Our team lives and works right here in the heart of Whistler village, and love sharing the love we have for our incredible home with likeminded skiers and boarders. Our decades of experience living here means that we can help you experience Whistler, like a local. Worried about lift lines or expensive lift passes? Want to know the snowiest month to visit, or which properties have the best hot tubs? Mabey Ski is here to answer all of your questions and help plan the ski trip of your dreams, from magical family getaways at Christmas, to adrenaline fueled adventures with friends.
This itinerary is just an example of one of many Whistler ski vacations we have organised in the past. We take the time to talk to you and listen to what you want from your trip to Whistler, in order to create the perfect, all-inclusive bespoke adventure, from the moment your plane touches down at Vancouver airport.
Bespoke ski trips for those of you looking to explore Whistler, like a Whistlerite. With your on-the-ground concierge team, every part of your trip will be taken care of, from accommodation and transportation to restaurant reservations and recommendations.
Flying into Vancouver, the skiing starts in Mabey Ski's hometown of Whistler, BC – 2 hours north of Vancouver.
We have created unique Whistler trips for honeymoons, 50th birthdays, young families taking their first trip and everyone in between! Just bring an appetite for adventure and we'll do the rest.
We off trips to Whistler from December through to May each year - see below for more information on which months are our favourite to ski Whistler.
Arriving into Vancouver International Airport (YVR), we will arrange for a private SUV, minibus or scheduled transfer service to collect you right from the international arrivals terminal. The drive to Whistler takes around 2-2.5 hours from YVR and is up there with one of the most spectacular drives in the world, with sprawling ocean, dramatic mountain backdrops, cityscapes and much more. Local tip: sit on the left hand side of the vehicle on the way to Whistler from Vancouver for the best window view, and on the right side on the way back! Once you have arrived in Whistler village (the downtown area), your driver will drop you and your bags right at the door or your property, where either a Mabey Ski representative or your accommodation managers will meet you and help settle in.
With the most terrain of any resort in North America, there is not shortage of terrain for all levels of skier. With one of the best ski schools and guiding programs on the planet, as well as a huge array of different runs, bowls, glades and glaciers, Whistler is the place to push your boundaries and take it to the next level. Learn how to ski tour in the backcountry with one of our expert ski guides, or take a steep-skiing private clinic (along with lift line priority privileges!) in the resort. Don’t forget to stop in at our favourite spot, Christine’s on Blackcomb for their famous burger or hoisin duck salad.
On the mountain we can help arrange lift passes, ski lessons, ski guiding, clinics, coaching, heli-skiing and much, much more.
Off the mountain
There is almost as much fun to be had off the mountain as on it, so why not try out some of our favourite off-the-beaten track activities in Whistler, like the Yukon Breakfast tour, where you snowmobile up to a remote, alpine cabin where a chef is waiting and ready to serve up buckwheat pancakes, hearty scrambles and fresh coffee – definitely the best way to wake up in Whistler in our opinion!
For a splash of culture, check out the Squamish Lilwat Cultural Centre in the upper village – we can arrange private or group tours of this incredible display of First Nations craftsmanship and history. Don’t forget to try the traditional Bannock in their café.
Looking to relax and soothe those sore muscles, take a few hours at the Scandinave Spa, complete with hot tubs, saunas, steam rooms, cold plunges, solariums and everything else you need to unwind from a long day’s skiing.
Pre-arrange activities with one of our team, or just text us when in resort and we can help arrange any of these last minute too, availability permitting.
Any expectations – which were already high – were exceeded. The perfect balance of inspiration alongside practical. Hands down one of the best trips we’ve ever been on!
Mabey Ski arranged an incredible trip for our family holiday. The attention to detail was second to none. The whole experience was enchanting. It fulfilled our desire for adventure
My husband and I booked our entire Whistler trip through Mabey Ski (a very belated honeymoon). I can honestly say they were absolutely fantastic, we didn’t have to think about a single thing, everything was taken care of and organised to perfection. Thank you for making our trip extra special!!
