The latest resort rankings by Freeskier Magazine puts Whistler-Blackcomb on a pretty grand pedestal not only is Whistler number one, it leads the rest of the resorts by a long margin.
"Whistler was the consensus number one pick of our editors," said Patrick Crawford, Freeskiers managing editor. "The all-mountain skiing, terrain park and nightlife all deserve the hype they get, and no resort in North America can match the energy and progression at Whistler. Its the best resort on the continent for freeskiers."
Tremblant, Quebec, was the only other Canadian resort to get a mention in the top 15 list.
