Top Family-Friendly Ski Resorts in North America

7 of 9
WhistlerBlackcombSkiResort

Whistler Blackcomb (British Columbia)


Whistler Blackcomb is the biggest ski resort in North America, with an astonishing 8,171 acres of traversable terrain. Its location in the Canadian Rockies ensures powdery snow throughout its long season. New for the winter of 2009 is a peak-to-peak gondola, which ferries skiers a distance of two miles, at an altitude of over 1,000 feet. The resort is likely to be much busier during the winter of 2010, when it will host the Olympic Games.
