Fresh on the heels of a massive expansion and upgrade to the learning area on Whistler Mountain, Never Ever Days are back at Whistler Blackcomb. On December 10 and 11, 450 (225 on each day) beginner adult skiers and riders (ages 19 and up), will receive a one day Max4 lesson, lift ticket, ski or board rental, and après at the Garibaldi Lift Company (GLC) for only $25. Participants in Never Ever Days will be taught at the newly improved learning area at Olympic Station, where they will have access to freshly graded terrain and two new covered carpet lifts. Registration opens on December 5 and it sells out very quickly every year.
Now in its sixth year at Whistler Blackcomb, the program geared towards bringing adults who have never tried skiing or snowboarding into the sport has spread across Canada. The Canadian Ski Council is working with over 70 ski areas across the country to offer Never Ever Days throughout the 2016.2017 winter season. For a full list of participating ski areas, please visit https://www.skicanada.org/never-ever-days/.
“We are so proud that a program pioneered at Whistler Blackcomb is being taken on by ski areas across Canada,” says Bartosz Barczynski, General Manager of Adult Ski and Snowboard School at Whistler Blackcomb. “Enticing new people into winter sports is important for our business and can be a challenge with adults. Never Ever Days have been a proven success for us and we’re thrilled to be able to share it with people from all over the country.”
Each participant in Whistler Blackcomb’s Never Ever Days will receive a $25 voucher which can be applied to an incredible comeback offer with Snow School. For those participants keen to continue learning to ski/snowboard after their Never Ever Days experience, the $25 voucher can go towards an additional two-day lesson, lift ticket and rental package, essentially making their initial day free.
Guests can find out more information about the Never Ever Days program and register on December 5 to participate at https://www.whistlerblackcomb.com/snow-school/never-ever-days.
As an additional effort to welcome more newcomers this season, Whistler Blackcomb will continue to run Discover Whistler Days, offering 25 per cent off select adult, youth and kids group lessons. The dates of Discover Whistler Days are November 23 – December 16, February 25 – March 12, April 1 – 9, and April 18 – 23.
