Whistler is Canada’s premier year-round destination. Located in the spectacular Coast Mountains it is a short drive up the Sea to Sky Highway north of Vancouver. It features rugged beauty and outstanding skiing terrain. Blending the charm of an alpine village with the amenities of an urban centre, the pedestrian-only village offers fine dining, vibrant nightlife, eclectic boutiques and luxurious accommodation.

Nestled in the formidable shadow of the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains the village, in winter, is dusted in snow assuming a frosted, Christmas-card appearance. Contrastingly, summer visitors now outnumber the ski-season crowds. Outdoor enthusiasts are lured by the scenic panoramas that can be enjoyed when hiking, biking or other popular extreme outdoor adventures.

The two majestic mountains are an impressive back drop providing epic skiing and snowboarding in winter. Whistler Blackcomb is rated as the number one ski destination in North America featuring incredible scenery, endless powder filled bowls, impressive ski slopes and legendary après ski entertainment.

Four championship golf courses, world-class shopping, restaurants, bars, hiking trails, spas and the world-famous Whistler Mountain Bike Park will keep any visitor spoilt for choice no matter what season. Thrill-seeking travellers will love the Peak to Peak Gondola, the world’s longest and highest gondola ride stretching 4.4 kilometres between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.

Fresh clean lakes, natural wildlife habitats and a charming village all make up the stunning location of Whistler which was recently voted number two destination to visit in 2017 – so pack your bags and adventure awaits!

And the lucky Canadians have the hottest leader in the world!
