(Note: The following details are as of the spring of 2022 and subject to change.)
All About the Edge Card
Edge Cards are usually available for purchase at Whistler Blackcomb from late March until early December each year. The passes are only available to residents of British Columbia and Washington State. The cards are a good deal for folk looking to ski more than once a season at the mountain. Whistler isn’t inexpensive, so every little bit can help!
Purchasers can choose between three options for the Edge Card. There are 2-day, 5-day and 10-day pass options as well as a choice between unrestricted and restricted cards. Restricted passes do not include access to the mountain on holidays and other special events. Current blackout dates for these passes are from December 26th to 31st, 2022, on January 14th, 2023, and from February 18th to 19th, 2023.
Edge Card Price Comparisons
Compared to previous years, 2021/2022 Edge Cards are priced around 20% cheaper. The aim of the price reduction was to get folk to choose prepaid seasons’ pass options over the regular day tickets. In 2022/23 the prices are a little higher than last year, but still cheaper than what they were in 2020/21.
Prices for a restricted pass in the 2022/2023 season are as follows:
- 2-Day Restricted Card – $188
- 5-Day Restricted Card – $394
- 10-Day Restricted Card – $678
Prices are slightly higher for the unrestricted Edge Card
- 2-Day Unrestricted Card – $213
- 5-Day Unrestricted Card – $428
- 10-Day Unrestricted Card – $738
In addition to the days of skiing or snowboarding, Edge Cards have a few other benefits. Passholders who buy a 5 or 10-day card by April 21st, 2022 get unlimited early-season skiing for the upcoming season (early-season skiing runs until December 9th, 2022). They also receive one Peak 2 Peak 360 ticket for the summer of 2022. As well, passholders receive 15% off any lift tickets purchased for additional skiing days outside their pass days during the season.
When travel restrictions ease, Edge Card-holders are also able to use some of their days at other Vail Resorts in the United States. 2-Day passholders cannot use any days (since they only have two days), but 5-Day passholders can use up to 2 days at other resorts while 10-Day passholders can use up to 3.
