Whistler Terrain Parks

Snowboarder Half PipeDid you know that Whistler Blackcomb features over 99 acres of Terrain Parks which include a 22 foot superpipe maintained by a Global Pipe Cutter, a snowcross track, and more than 150 features?

In their ongoing effort to push the boundaries of free style skiing and snowboarding Whistler Blackcomb has recently made up grades to their Nintendo Terrain Parks. This has involved revamping a series of jumps ranging from 40 to 80 feet and moving the large jump line, previously located in the Habitat Terrain Park on Whistler to the Nintendo Highest Level Terrain Park on Blackcomb.

These recent changes allow riders of the highest level to continue to train and push their airel skills to the next level.

But for all you beginners and in betweeners out there have no fear as the Whistler Blackcomb staff continue to modify and tweak the Chocker, Habitat and Big Easy Terrain Parks as well. These Parks are located on both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain and range in difficulty allowing skiers and snowboarders of all levels to advance their Terrain Park Skills.
