The sun is shining, the lakes are warm, it’s the perfect time to … go skiing and riding. The Horstman Glacier lets you experience the best of both worlds – work on your tan AND get your ski/ride fix at the same time.
Glacier Opening July 20, 2009
Blackcomb Mountain’s Horstman Glacier is open for sun-filled days of skiing and snowboarding in the summer. Be sure to pack sunscreen because the rays are hot.
In order to access the glacier, skiers and snowboarders must upload on the Wizard and Solar Coaster Express chairs. You then transfer to a bus which travels along Expressway to the base of the 7th Heaven Express express chairlift.
Once at the top of the 7th Heaven Express, you access the Horstman Glacier. Skiers and snowboarders take the same route to get back down, or can use the ski out from the glacier to the top of the Solar Coaster as long as snow conditions permit.
Recommended for Levels Intermediate & Above
The summer glacier experience is recommended for intermediate to advanced skiers and riders and offers a perfect opportunity to improve your park and bump skills.
