More Information on the Ski-in Ski-out Access

The ski-in ski-out access is via Merlin’s, a blue (intermediate) run that leads down to the base of Blackcomb Mountain.

Confident beginners could walk across the blue run to a green run, the Yellow Brick Road. Rather than ski down, first time skiers and boarders may prefer to catch the shuttle bus down to the Blackcomb base area. Families accessing ski school or child care at the Blackcomb base area may also want to catch the shuttle bus to get there.

If riding on Blackcomb Mountain it’s easy to ski-in to the hotel via Merlin’s run. To return “home” from Whistler Mountain, get off at the mid station of the Blackcomb Excalibur gondola and traverse across to the hotel.

More Reasons to Stay at the Coast Blackcomb Suites

Thankfully at Coast Blackcomb Suites, there’s no long tedious walk in your ski boots whilst lugging your equipment just to get to the slopes. It’s so easy to pick up your skis or snowboard from the hotel valet service, walk about 5 metres, click in, and schuss down to the Merlin chair lift. At the end of the day, ski-in, drop your equipment with the valet, and then head for the pool and hot tub. Sounds perfect eh?
