It’s tempting to let legend speak for Whistler, the renowned ski resort that became even more famous as the site of the alpine and Nordic venues for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. But the rumours about this mountain town are so incredible, they may seem too good to be true. Let it be known: Whistler is every bit as good as you’ve heard.
A mere two-hour drive from Vancouver along the scenic Sea-to-Sky Highway (Highway 99), Whistler blends the charm of an alpine village with the amenities of the most sophisticated urban centre.
Its pedestrian-only, picturesque village offers fine dining, vibrant nightlife, eclectic boutiques, revitalizing spas and luxurious hotels.
On the mountain, 3,307 hectares (8,171 acres) of terrain beckons skiers and snowboarders between November and May. Or, try snowshoeing, snowmobiling, dogsledding, ziplining or perhaps a sleigh ride, complete with hot chocolate.
In the summer, hundreds of kilometres of bike trails (including lift-serviced ones) will entertain any level of cyclist, while its hiking trails are perfect for picnickers. Whistler’s golf courses will challenge even the lowest handicaps, while its rivers and lakes are perfect to explore with a paddle in hand. For adventure that is decidedly untamed, you’ll find an abundance of wildlife here — ideal for viewing. From a respectable vantage point, of course.
Can’t decide? Sit back on a sunny patio, winter or summer, to people-watch, and let the magic of Whistler come to you.
