Nestled in the spectacular Coast Mountains less than two hours from Vancouver, British Columbia, Whistler is Canada’s premier year-round destination and Host Mountain Resort for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Distinguished by impressive twin mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, and surrounded by forested valleys, rivers and lakes, the resort offers countless outdoor adventures. Skiing and snowboarding are the biggest draw, but golf, mountain biking, and a long list of other winter and summer activities bring people here, and bring them back again and again. The mountains blend seamlessly with Whistler Village, a vibrant town center with every amenity for the traveller: diverse accommodations, local and international cuisine, shops, arts and cultural centers, wellness spas and entertainment venues. Much of the village is pedestrian-only.
Whistler is consistently rated one of the world’s top year-round destination resorts, and has received international recognition for its visionary and innovative work as a sustainable community.
