  • What is the difference between Development and High Performance equipment?

    Development equipment is generally shorter and softer flexing equipment that is easier for those who are learning to turn and want to build confidence on the mountain. Typically, Development equipment is used on Green runs.

    High Performance equipment will help you get the most out of your Whistler vacation. If you normally ski or ride on Blue and Black runs, we can offer you equipment designed for racing, powder, park and all mountain conditions.
