Live Whistler Blackcomb Lift Status

Whistler Blackcomb Winter Season Dates: Live Lift Updates

Whistler Blackcomb have lots of great tool on their website, but the live lift status page is one of the best. From this page you can see the status of every lift in the resort. We use this tool (via the Whistler Blackcomb app) religiously on powder days to see which of our favourite lifts are getting ready to open.

Have you ever noticed large groups of people leave a lift line all at once on big powder days? What do they know? Where are they going?

There’s a good chance that when you see this mass exodus from a lift line it’s because those people have been watching the live lift status, waiting for one of the alpine chairs to “crack” (that’s what the locals call it when an alpine chairlift opens after a big storm). Then when the Whistler Blackcomb app updates the status from standby to open, all those who were watching and waiting will head to the chair in hope of getting the first fresh lines.

If you want to stay ahead of the crowds on a powder day make sure you download the Whistler Blackcomb app for your smartphone.
