Whistler – Winter Sports Mecca of the World
Located in the spectacular Coast Mountains of British Columbia, and just two hours north of Vancouver, Whistler is Canada’s premier, year-round destination.
Consistently ranked the number one mountain resort in North America, Whistler features two majestic mountains, epic skiing and snowboarding, four championship golf courses, more than 200 shops, 90 restaurants and bars, accommodation galore, hiking trails, spas and arguably the best mountain bike park the world. Whistler has everything you will ever need to have the time of your life—and so much more.
There are many things to do in the Village, the heart of Whistler. Stay in a centrally located hotel, walk the Village Stroll, indulge yourself at one of many places to eat and browse the unique shops. The Village is located at the base of the lifts, making access to Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains convenient for skiing, snowboarding and sightseeing. Whistler Village is big enough to have all the amenities expected of a world-class resort, yet small enough for you to feel its unique mountain culture and distinctive hospitality.
Whistler took part in the Winter Olympics as an Official Olympic venue. Although the 2010 Olympic and Paralympics Winter Games have come and gone, Whistler’s spot on the world stage was firmly established. Fantastic Olympic legacies like the Whistler Sliding Centre, Whistler Olympic Park and Whistler Medals Plaza as well as the Mountain Bike Park and the record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola make Whistler a world-class, four season destination.
