Whistler is a located north of Vancouver and in winter is one of the largest ski resorts in North America. The hub of Whistler is a compact, chalet-style pedestrian village at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
The village only dates to the 1970’s but has already become a destination in its own right and has high-end international restaurants, shops, hotels and bars lining its main, stone-cobbled walking avenue. While it's most crowded in winter, Whistler is also a summer destination with lush, forested hills for mountain biking and hiking, white water rivers for rafting and a number of golf courses.
Don’t forget to take a ride on the Peak 2 Peak gondola which is among the longest and highest lifts in the world and that stretches horizontally between the tops of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
