Nestled in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is Canada’s favourite year-round destination. Consistently ranked as the number one mountain resort in North America, Whistler offers an escape into nature and a unique, relaxed mountain lifestyle. Be warned; once you arrive, it is going to be very hard to leave.
The dramatic landscapes of Whistler’s surroundings are famous across the world; two side by side mountains providing access to stunning alpine terrain. A vibrant base village leads to kilometres of hiking and biking trails, meadows full of brightly coloured wildflowers and lush forestry. Welcome to paradise – soar to the skies onboard the world-famous gondola to really appreciate the stunning scenery you have found yourself in.
If you are looking for a destination that offers adventures to challenge and move you, look no further than Whistler. Home to the best skiing in Western Canada, it is natural that thousands of people visit every year in search of the promised powdered slopes. The village is home to countless sports that will allow you to make the most of the colder weather, from ice-climbing to winter zip-lining, dog sledding to snowboarding. Keep your eyes peeled for the forest dwelling black bears as you explore the terrain.
If you visit outside of ski season, Whistler will still be waiting to welcome you with open arms. The quaint pedestrian village is anything but quiet. With four award-winning golf courses, world-class shopping, lively bars and an ever-growing number of original events and festivals, you will never be short of something to do.
As well as adventure, Whistler provides rest and relaxation to those with a deep appreciation for the finer things in life. Stay in the most deluxe 5-star hotels - such as the Fairmont Chateau Whistler or the Four Seasons Resort Hotel - and make use of the luxurious services on offer. Après-ski is a way of life here, so enjoy decadent fine-dining with mountain vistas and the finest champagne after a long day on the slopes. Whether you want to get up close to the landscape or you simply want to relax and soak up the scenery, Whistler can provide everything you’re looking for and more.
