Badges are calculated once a day, shortly after 5pm PST

For Whistler Complete, Blackcomb Complete and Did It All - WB Complete it may take a little longer to calculate/process these badges, so may be 'awarded' a little later than completed.

On occasion RFID gates may not be able to scan your pass due to data signal loss, bad scans, weather etc. If this is the case we suggest you visit other lifts on the mountain to continue your goal/challenge/adventure.

*Currently Franz’s Chair and our magic carpets do not have RFID gates installed, so are not included in any Badge challenges; nor can they count towards any vertical or lift stats.

*Horstman t-bar is now fully functioning and is required to count towards any of the relevant Badge requirements.
