Welcome to Whistler, British Columbia
Located just a two hour drive north of Vancouver along the gorgeous Sea-to-Sky highway, Whistler was rated the number one resort in 2015 by Ski Magazine. It is a magical destination with endless year-round recreation activities and opportunities for rest and relaxation.
Ski or snowboard Whistler’s exceptional high alpine peaks and bowls on Whistler and Blackcomb, the site of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games. Cross-country ski, snowshoe or toboggan at either Lost Lake Park or Whistler Olympic Park, located in the Callaghan Valley. Take the family on a snowmobile ride… up to a mountain cabin for fondue or take them on a horse-drawn carriage over snow-covered hills, while beautiful snowflakes fall from the sky. Whistler is a true winter wonderland!
In summer, take to the mountains for a day hike or thrilling mountain bike decent, or grab your golf clubs and head to the green on one of Whistler’s three championship golf courses. Suspend almost 1,500 feet above the Fitzsimmons Creek, on the Peak to Peak Gondola, the longest and highest lift in the world, zip-line between mountain peaks or bungee jump over the Cheakamus River.
Whistler Village also provides an amazing shopping experience — in the pedestrian-only village stroll — with shops, restaurants, spas, ski lifts and centrally located accommodation. And don’t forget Whistler’s vibrant restaurant scene and nightlife. As a top resort destination, Whistler brings you the best of the great outdoors and the big city.
