Whistler Blackcomb-Canada


Whistler Blackcomb: The Grand and the Beautiful




The founding father of the Whistler Blackcomb was Franz Wilhelmsen. It was his vision which was supported by the resourcefulness of the businessmen from Vancouver that today Whistler Blackcomb is where it is today.

It was a dream much like a fantastical visitation which Franz Wilhelmsen had almost 50 years ago – it was about hosting the Winter Olympics which was due in less than a decades time back then. There were not many supporters of the idea and when they stumbled upon the London Mountain their skepticism grew. It was a difficult terrain and demanded a lot of work. Their fears materialized and the plan had to be dropped for the 1968 games. But the ones who knew Franz Wilhelmsen were certain that his spirit did not go down.



The Whistler Blackcomb Mountains were developed and they soon achieved an iconic standing in the British Columbia region. People have always believed in this vision and precisely because of this reason and the active spirit that all the runs could be constructed. There is no other town-mountain like combination than anywhere else in the world. Many of the great skiers of the past generations and those who are coming uphold Whistler and Blackcomb mountain quite close to their heart.

Safety



The Whistler Blackcomb Resort area is extremely cautious of the various safety concerns. Therefore they go on and follow while also prescribing the Alpine Responsibility Code which further is prescribed by the Canadian Ski Patrol System. It lists the following 10 points which every individual must observe:

Always stay in control. You must be able to stop or avoid other people or objects.
People ahead have the right-of-way. It is your responsibility to avoid them.
Do not stop where you obstruct a trail or are not visible from above.
Before starting downhill or merging onto a trail, look uphill and yield to others.
If you are involved in or witness a collision or accident, you must remain at the scene and identify yourself to the Ski Patrol.
Always use proper devices to help prevent runaway equipment.
Observe and obey all posted signs and warnings.
Keep off closed trails and closed areas.
You must not use lifts or terrain if your ability is impaired through use of drugs or alcohol.
You must have sufficient physical dexterity, ability, and knowledge to safely load, ride and unload lifts. If in doubt, ask the lift attendant.
The same institution also requires you to observe the following – Nordic Skier’s Responsibly Code which is basically in addition to the ones that are mentioned above:

Ski in indicated direction and observe all signs
Ski to the right when passing or skiing a double track.
Descending skiers always have the right of way.
Don’t litter. Pack it in, pack it out…and respect private property.
Don’t obstruct the trail. Move off the track quickly if you fall or while taking a break.
Yield the track to faster skiers or skiers saying “track” by stepping off to the right.
It is truly your responsibility to know your code and being safety cautious. You will have to be safe and also ski in a controlled & responsible manner, after all, there is a kind of implied brotherhood that you become a part of.

Additional Safety Tips




Respect the Slow Zones posted on both mountains – they are meant for your own safety.
You also must identify certain meeting points with your group(s) in case you become separated from your companions. All group members are critically advised in this matter and they should know where to meet just in case separation occurs.
Furthermore, try and avoid the main runs during the times of holidays and busy weekends. Explore other areas of the mountains such as the Garbanzo Zone on Whistler and the Crystal Zone on Blackcomb. Crowded runs require all guests to slow down and be considerate of others, especially beginners.
Skiing and riding along with a companion at all times are necessary. You can carry a whistle and be particularly cautious while you are skiing or riding in the dense trees. There are tree wells and they can be a considerable matter of risk. For more information, you can log on to – www.deepsnowsafety.org.
Getting up early and eating a proper breakfast followed by a hearty lunch early or later in the afternoon is a mandatory practice.
You can ski or ride down early to avoid the end-of-the-day rush.
Please at all times stay within the bounds no matter how tempting that snow may be. Also kindly keep off the closed trails and out of closed areas. Furthermore, the trails and areas are closed for the safety of the visitors. Obedience even while you might just be observing the vast expanses is something that the resort appreciates and requests as well. All the posted signs and warnings, markings and fences are in place for the benefits of the guests. On the other hand, ignoring these messages may put yours and everyone else’s safety at greater risk, particularly those who follow tracks past boundaries and beyond warnings. As a deterrent, the Whistler Blackcomb area decrees that all those who violate closures will lose lift privileges.
Think about where you stop on the hill – Take a rest on the side of the run. Do not stop under rollovers where you can’t be seen from above or around blind corners on cat tracks.
Visibility can be compromised by falling snow or fog. Guests are encouraged to slow down or stop when these conditions exist. Terrain above the treeline makes poor visibility even worse. Use the colored discs (piste markers) to your advantage when visibility in the alpine is poor. Tree-lined runs also provide better definition.
Always look up before starting downhill. Yield to others.
Skiing or riding have to be conducted only while you are in control. You must always be able to quickly stop or turn to avoid objects or other skiers and riders. Take particular care in congested areas. Slow down and look ahead. Be aware of your surroundings.
Take note of the conditions. When the snow surface is hard and fast, it is easy to ski/ride at high speed, increasing the risk of serious injury if you fall and slide. Collisions with fixed objects or other guests become much more dramatic. make round, complete turns to control speed.
Cold temperatures increase the likelihood of frostbite. Dress warmly, bring extra layers and keep an eye on exposed skin. Go inside immediately if the skin begins to turn white.
The risk of sunburn is increased at altitude and from snow reflection. Protect your eyes with goggles or glasses and always wear sunscreen and a hat. Drink lots of water to stay well hydrated.
Ski boots do not offer good traction when walking on snow so exercise caution around our base areas and when turning corners.
Snowcats and snowmobiles may be encountered during operating hours. Give these vehicles a wide berth.
Terrain Parks – Park riders should progress through jumps and features by increasing the challenge and difficulty gradually. Ensure landings are clear before proceeding and don’t attempt maneuvers that are well beyond your ability.

About the Helmet




The Whistler Blackcomb resort area does not mandate but critically suggests that guests must wear a helmet while they are just around the mountain area. However, it is mandatory for everyone to be wearing appropriate helmets once anyone has stepped on the slope or has commenced their engagement with the skiing or the other related sports activities on the mountain. It is also prescribed under the Alpine Responsibility Code.

About the Tree Well




It is important to talk about the Tree Wells that occur within and outside the ski area boundary. Now, you might be wondering as to what is a tree line – well, they are like a depression or loosely described as a hole. They are a usual occurrence typically around the base area of a tree and the opening is covered by the accumulated snow. Therefore they become increasingly dangerous. Numerous people have gotten into accidents because of these tree wells and precisely because of this reason that the resort area has now marked them with signs. They are quite a serious natural hazard and Whistler Blackcomb at all time reiterates their existence to all their guests and requests them to at all times ride while being cautious of their surroundings and generally avoiding tree lines.
