Accolades Credited To Whistler Blackcomb's Incredible Terrain And Dedicated Staff

 WHISTLER, BC November 7, 2013 - The annual resort rankings are in and Whistler Blackcomb is proud to be the recipient of four "best overall" awards and 12 "category wins". These consistent results continue to position Whistler Blackcomb as one of the leading ski resorts in the world and a must-visit destination on every traveller's bucket list.

 "Our success is credited to our prime geographical location which results in great snow and an incredible variety of terrain, but what really makes the difference is our people," says Stuart Rempel, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Whistler Blackcomb.  "Our staff strives every day to provide the best and most memorable experiences to all of our guests and these awards are proof of that effort. We constantly aim to improve our physical assets as we respect our natural environment. The addition of the Crystal Ridge Express and the Harmony 6 Express chairs this winter will heighten the guest experience by moving people around the mountain more efficiently to their favorite zones.  We're confident these expansions, along with our focus on guest service, will allow us to remain at the top."
