Whistler Blackcomb has a $345 million plan to make Whistler a "weather independent" resort with new year-round attractions for non-skiers.
The proposal includes a massive indoor waterpark, more biking, hiking trails and luxury accommodations on Blackcomb. These enhancements are to be rolled out in three phases in on-mountain improvements, to “further solidify and enhance the company’s reputation as one of the world’s greatest four-season mountain resorts.
Phase 1 - Will include a $90- to $100-million investment in the watershed located at Blackcomb base 2 area. The main attraction will be the indoor adventure center, dedicated to a water play area that will include slides, a surf zone, a kids' splash area and hot and cold pools. The building will also feature a family entertainment centre, food and beverage options, an eight-lane bowling alley and, in Phase 2, will incorporate WB's existing Day Lodge facilities. The Blackcomb Adventure Park, will offer a range of year-round family activities, such as a mountain coaster, rope course, winter tubing and the introduction of night skiing.
