does whistler blackcomb count as one or two?

Canada: whistler/blackcomb and sunpeaks
NZ: Turoa, Whakapapa, Mt Hutt, Cardrona, Treble cone, ohau, dobson, rainbow
...some of them are club fields so dont know if they'd be classified as "resorts"

whistler and blackcomb are two different resorts.

Did you see that I posted Broken River on page two? I think that the club fields are classic! I love those places. But no fricken amenities thats for sure.

Actually Whistler Blackcomb is one resort. It's two gigantic seperate mountains. They are building an ariel tramway that goes from one mountain to the other. Your lift ticket is good at both, Intrawest owns and runs them both, same base village, etc. With the new tramway, you can fairly easily ride both in the same day now. They could easily be two resorts though.

Whistler Blackcomb - Official Ski Resort Website - Whistler, BC, Canada

Seems to me it's pretty much like Winterpark/Maryjane. The two are often mistaken for two different resorts when it's actually all one resort. Granted, Whistler Blackcomb is like 10X the size of WM/MJ, much more committing terrain, etc.

i think whistler - blackcomb are two resorts.

for sure a single lift pass can cover both areas.... but then you can get passes over here in eurolandia, that allow you to ride a hill in two sperate countries! eg chamonix and courmayeaur (france and italy) le thuile and la rosiere (italy - france)

and then there is les trois vallees.... about 5 seperate resorts.... espace killy (tignes and val d'isere) plus many others....

good think to link whistler and black comb by a car tho..... farking boring to download and reupload in a single day if one hill is cloud enshrouded or just cack!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

Even as a Cepo (Ceptic Yank) I've camped out at the Clubbies with almost no money. Cragie and Broken River are skid row with the richest rewards for sure. See some better Cragieburn pics here "Where there is a will, there's a way" It works best if you're solo...
