Whistler Mountain Resort
Whistler, British Columbia, Canada is best known for being home to Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains – the continent’s two greatest vertical-rise ski mountains with the largest terrain of any ski area in North America, huge alpine bowls, expert grooming and ski runs that last forever. No wonder people keep coming back.
Perhaps not so well known is Whistler’s accessibility. Whistler is only two hours from Vancouver along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway and five hours from Seattle, Washington. Travel to the resort is easy via air, car, limousine or bus.
This year-round resort is ever-popular for the abundance of activities on offer. It’s impossible to get bored with skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing to entice during the winter months and mountain biking, golf, hiking, rock climbing and water sports all available during summer.
Whistler Resort, part of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, also includes a vibrant pedestrian village. Whistler Village joins the base of the mountains and is filled with restaurants, patios, cafes, bars, shops, galleries, and spas – all surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of Whistler Blackcomb.
Boasting the longest unsupported lift span in the world at 3.024 kilometres (1.88 miles), it’s also the highest lift of its kind at 415 metres / 1,361 feet.
There is plenty to do in Whistler, at any time of the year, on and off the mountain, and no matter what the weather is doing. Check out the upcoming events.
