Video of the Magic Run on Blackcomb Mountain shows where you will find the ski-in/ski-out access to the townhomes of Pinnacle Ridge. Pinnacle Ridge is located at 4700 Glacier Drive which is the road leading from Blackcomb Way up to Blackcomb Base 2. The gondola at Base 2 will take you up to mid point or down to the “heart” of Whistler Village where the lifts are. My video, taken from the Magic Chair will show you the two access points leading from the Magic Run into Pinnacle Ridge.
The Magic Chair is an old, slow tortoise of a lift. This is a good thing because the Magic Run is the bunny hill, a place where beginners learn to ski and board. At the side of the Magic Run, those who are learning to ski/board have created chutes to increase their proficiency and confidence. These chutes meander down the side of the run parallel to the access points for Pinnacle Ridge. These chutes are not of concern for children, as the young beginners can be seen in snow plow position swooshing from side to side like liquid in a glass. Everyone having lots of fun. However, for the adult learning, it is important to take your time and navigate the way slowly into Pinnacle Ridge.
Starting off your day from Pinnacle Ridge one choice would be to ski down to the ten passenger Blackcomb Gondola. This ensures a protected and warmer trip up to the top of Blackcomb Mountain. From that point you can enjoy Blackcomb Mountain or catch the Peak to Peak Gondola over to Whistler Mountain.
