Whistler is one of the finest outdoor sports destinations in the world — a mecca for ski, golf, and mountain bike enthusiasts alike. Two spectacular mountains come together as one fantastic resort, with a brilliantly-designed pedestrian village catering for every recreational need. There continues to be an audible buzz about the location since the site proudly co-hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 2010.
Whistler recently introduced a brand-new attraction to its repertoire: the gravity-defying “Peak2Peak” Gondola. Spanning the valley between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, this record-breaking transportation system is an 11-minute journey from one peak to the other, providing incredible panoramic views of the surrounding area. The two mountains provide thousands of acres of terrain for even the most discerning of snow athletes, yet many runs are suitable for all abilities. From new beginners to hot doggers, everyone is sure to have a wonderful experience on the slopes of these mountains. Blackcomb has fast, fun rolling cruisers down its front face, terrain parks, and thrilling off-piste descents on its back side. Whistler has wide-open, go-anywhere terrain, including the 11-km (6.8-mile) “Peak to Creek” trail, the secluded Harmony Bowl and a series of steeper bowls with bumps and narrow chutes through the trees for the ultimate exhilarating experience.
The entertainment in Whistler can’t be beat: Whistler Village offers enticing restaurants, kicking nightlife, and quality accommodations with legendary service standards. Whistler is a treasure trove of arts and culture, and has a rich and fascinating history to explore along with first-rate hotels. With over 200 shops and art galleries and over 100 first class restaurants, eateries and bars, you’ll need tons of energy to explore everything in the area. Whistler also proudly hosts many world-class special events and unique festivals throughout the year.
