WHISTLER

 

About Whistler

Whistler Blackcomb is rated as the #1 ski destination in North America and we're not surprised. With incredible scenery, endless powder-filled bowls and an impressive ski area to suit all ability levels - Whistler really does have it all. Not to mention, legendary après and one of the longest ski seasons. Whistler Blackcomb has over 8000 skiable acres, and with the introduction of the PEAK 2 PEAK gondola you no longer have to choose just one mountain; you can try both in one day! With a short 11 minute ride and breathtaking views the PEAK 2 PEAK is a must do, plus you’ll be able to claim you’ve been on the highest chairlift in the world.

Nestled at the base of the mountain is the pedestrian only village, which is alive with colourful shops, cosy restaurants and plenty of après ski fun. In fact, the village boasts 90+ restaurants and over 200 shops.  Other activities include snowmobiling, horse drawn sleigh rides, snowshoeing, dog sledding; zip-lining and heli-skiing/boarding – we’ve got plenty more up our sleeve, just ask any of our team!

Whistler is located just two hours’ drive from Vancouver via the scenic Sea-to-Sky highway. Spend a couple of days in Canada’s ‘most liveable city’ to round-off the perfect Whistler trip.

  • Family friendly

Accommodation

Whistler has accommodation to suit all budgets including family condos, 3-star suites and 5-star, full service hotels. Whistler Village is the largest and most central area to stay; this pedestrian village is a 10 minute walk from end-to-end and has access to a large number of restaurants, bars and shopping areas. Upper Village and Creekside offer a quieter stay with local amenities. All three areas have easy access to the ski lifts using the Whistler Blackcomb Lift Pass.

Accommodation for peak season (Christmas – end of January) books out far in advance, we’d recommend booking in accommodation at least 6 months prior to departure.
