A year round travel destination, the Village of Whistler and the surrounding area attracts more than 2 million visitors annually.
Set in the beautiful Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is among the premier travel destinations of Canada, and co-hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic Games and Paralympics.
During the winter months the slopes of Whistler (2,182 metres/7,160 feet) and Blackcomb (2,284 metres/7,494 feet) Mountains are the playgrounds of skiers and snowboarders who can choose from multiple runs on over 8,000 acres of well groomed terrain. Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains combine to make the largest skiable terrain in North America.
After navigating the slopes, skiers can enjoy a hearty meal at either the Roundhouse Lodge on Whistler Mountain or the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain. ...More information below photos...
