Whistler-Blackcomb/Justa Jeskova

North America’s biggest and most popular resort is also has two of the continent’s three biggest verticals. Spread out over Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, the drops on both peaks are nearly a mile—which the resort uses to good effect, advertising a 5,280-foot vertical. The dive down Whistler Mountain starts at the peak (7,160 feet) and heads all the way to Creekside via the intermediate-rated Peak to Creek trail. The Blackcomb drop starts a little higher, at the top of Blackcomb Glacier, and ends a little lower at Blackcomb Daylodge.
