SKI Magazine’s resort survey has ranked Whistler Blackcomb the number one Overall Ski Resort in North America for the third year in a row. Their top scores were of the terrain variety and off-hill activities. They ranked number two in lodging and après and number three in lifts, dining and terrain parks.

“This is such great news for Whistler Blackcomb and for all of Whistler,” says Barrett Fisher, president and CEO, Tourism Whistler’s. “There is nothing quite like being recognized by an industry leader like SKI Magazine and their readers—our guests.”

SKI Magazine readers rank the top 50 North American ski resorts in 18 categories that review every part of a resort experience.

“Whistler would not be what it is today without these collaborative efforts,” says Fisher. “Awards like the SKI Magazine number one ranking recognize Whistler Blackcomb and celebrate Whistler as North America’s number one ski destination.”

When they announced the award this year, the magazine called Whistler Blackcomb the crown jewel of North American ski resorts due to the its appeal and variety of natural resources available to guests. Whistler Blackcomb is scheduled to open for the new winter season on Nov. 24.

Located at the base of Arizona’s highest mountain, the 12,633-foot Humphrey’s Peak, Basecamp at Arizona Snowbowl has 26 newly renovated cabins and rooms that are the closest lodging to Snowbowl’s ski lifts. 

Everything is new in the cabins and rooms from the plank flooring, southwestern throw rugs, furniture, bedding, big-screen TVs, and accent art, including photography of the slopes at Snowbowl. 

 

The Texas Restaurant Association (TRA) led a coalition of business groups and their communities to drive support to the industry, for SB 8, the federal pandemic relief bill that included $180 million for local hospitality and tourism businesses. 

 

The first property of the Limelight Hotel brand, Limelight Hotel Aspen has undergone a full makeover and will begin welcoming guests back at the start of the 2021/22 ski season in November 2021. Located next to Wagner Park in downtown Aspen, the upgrades include all 126 guestrooms and suites and public spaces such as the Limelight Lounge, conference room, lobby and bar. Guests and groups will notice a new arrival experience, expanded seating for dining, and relocation of the lounge’s stage area to better accommodate events.
