Whistler - An Overview
Whistler is one of the greatest places in the world, let alone ski resorts.
You'll find Whistler just an easy – and breathtakingly beautiful – scenic 2 hour drive north of Vancouver. Nestled in the stunning setting of the majestic Coastal Mountain range, Whistler is consistently ranked North America’s number one mountain resort with two incredible mountains to enjoy epic world class skiing and snowboarding.
The pedestrian-only village of Whistler is always switched on and buzzing, no matter what time of the year it is. It offers so much more than you could ask for from a ski resort, with more than 200 shops, 90 restaurants and bars, nightclubs, spas and an endless of non-ski activities too, Whistler is a holiday destination in itself. And as if that wasn’t enough, there are also 17 on-mountain restaurants to choose from too – so you really are spoiled for choice!
Mostly just called Whistler, the resort consists of two Ski Mountains; Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain. With the recent addition of the amazing Peak2Peak Gondola you can ski both mountains in one day, and cross between the two easily - and enjoy awe-inspiring views across the valley and down to the village as you cross.
Combining your passion for ski and snowboarding with your love après, dining and nightlife, whilst enjoying some of the most spectacular views you will ever experience in your life – Whistler is the perfect choice for you
Accommodation & Facilities
We reckon that Whistler has the best après ski on offer. The energy in the resort is buzzing and there is always something to do, a band to see, a new place to eat or a DJ in town to enjoy!
You can choose to stay in the Whistler Resort, Blackcomb or the original town of Whistler Creekside, and each location is fully equipped with supermarkets, restaurants, bars and shops, so you really have everything on your doorstep!
We have a huge number of accommodation options for you to choose from. No matter what size of group you are travelling in or what kind of hotel, lodge, cabin or apartment you would like in any area in Whistler – we can do it for you.
Great for Kids
The kids will also absolutely love it here too as you will find one of the best snow schools around.
The resorts have implemented a GPS tracking system so that every child that is out with an instructor can be tracked so that there is no danger of them being split up.
The GPS leg bands also allow them to record how far they have skied, how much vertical they tackled and where they visited on the mountain – great for the kids and the adults!
And their daily report cards will have them building their confidence as well as their skills on the mountain in no time!
For the non-skiers and those wanting to spend some days off the mountain, there is a wealth of activities on offer to choose from. You can choose from a relaxing day in the spa, to an adrenaline pumping adventure on an Eco Zip Trekking tour.
Whatever you fancy, it is on offer at this marvellous resort!
