A short journey up the 'Sea-to-Sky Highway' from Vancouver, Whistler is British Columbia's (and arguably North America's) leading winter resort. Whistler was a major venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics but, in keeping with many of North America's finest, summer also sees Whistler throw off the winter-wear and blossom as a playground for hikers and bikers. To the skiing first: on the two mountains of
Whistler and Blackcomb there are groomed runs for every standard of skier – more than one could cover in a week – plus tree runs, steep couloirs and superb backcountry (North American speak for off-piste) experiences in areas such as the Flute Bowl. Snowboarders are also well catered for, with well-maintained parks, half-pipes (one floodlit) and some excellent free-riding. Whistler also makes an excellent family ski destination, and beginners are in the safe hands of the international ski school. The good news is that we know Whistler inside and out, and appreciate that this is less a ski resort and more of an all-round winter playground, with all kinds of activities on offer. We can arrange snowmobile adventures and heli-skiing or, for more peaceful pursuits, guided snowshoeing tours and cross-country skiing along trails through breath-taking alpine scenery.
