Whistler

Whistler tailor-made holidays

Introduction

The sprawling resort of Whistler is the largest ski resort in North America, with its charming alpine heart, Whistler village, nestled under the shadow of the Blackcomb Mountains. It offers spectacular skiing and snowboarding, but far from only catering to die-hard alpine adventurers, it offers cosy chalet-style cafes, spectacular wintery hikes and tobogganing. And when the thaw sets in, rugged peaks are the backdrop for verdant forests, gentle rivers and vast lakes, wonderfully explored with mountain biking, canoeing and hiking.

Spectacular ski slopes

This popular resort hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics and has the biggest vertical drop in North America, as well as countless trails on offer. Adding to its marvel are the stunning views from the chairlift that lead to slopes for intermediates, advanced or more extreme skiers. There's also boundless tobogganing trails and snow parks, and for those that like to enjoy excursions with their feet firmly planted on the ground , there's arts festivals, spas and cosy cobbled shopping lanes. 

Mountain trails and forests 

Winter is the heavyweight season in Whistler, but stick around for summer's melt and you'll witness a whole new act. Whistler's coastal curves, dense forests, and giant peaks are showcased in all their glory as ski slopes are swapped for biking trails, hiking routes, championship golf courses and a wide array of water sports, hosted by Whistler’s five lakes and countless rivers. A trip on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola affords panoramic views of glaciers, extinct volcanoes and snow-capped crags, 7,000 feet up to the top of Whistler Mountain.
