"Hi, how do I ski back to the hotel?" This question often arises among first-time guests at our establishment. With over 200 ski runs sprawling across the mountains, finding your way back at the end of a day's skiing can be challenging. That's precisely why we've crafted this blog – to ensure that no matter where you explore on the mountains, returning to your cozy suite is a breeze.
While you can easily find our hotel's address online (4899 Painted Cliff Rd), do you know which ski run our hotel sits upon? We proudly claim the highest position on the Lower Merlins run. When you're skiing down Blackcomb Mountain, the first prominent building you spot on your right? That's us!
Skiing Back to the Hotel - From the Beginner Zone
For first-timers, the beginner zone is within an arm's reach – the entire green area marked on the map above is designed for learning. Smooth slopes and easily accessible lifts (Magic Chair and Magic Carpet) all lie within a Slow Skiing Zone. The proximity of this learning area to the hotel isn't just convenient but provides a reassuring sense of familiarity for novice skiers. Imagine stepping out of Blackcomb Springs Suites and within moments finding yourself on the bunny hill, where the Magic Chair eagerly awaits. This proximity allows for effortless navigation back to the comfort of the hotel after a day of mastering the gentle slopes. Just get off the Magic Carpet, ski across the slope, and you'll be back at the hotel within minutes.
Skiing Back to the Hotel - From Anywhere on Blackcomb Mountain
A significant advantage of skiing Blackcomb Mountain is that nearly all ski runs (except the village run) lead back to the same place – the base of Blackcomb Gondola. For novice skiers, there's a green run from the mountain's peak to its base – the Green Line. Follow this run, and it'll bring you back to the hotel. Intermediate or advanced skiers seeking thrills can take the blue Lower Cruiser run, located right above the hotel. Descend this run, and you'll spot the hotel sign awaiting you at the end.
