British Columbia boasts one of North America’s number one ski and snowboard resort and the host Mountain Resort of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic & Paralympic Winter Games! Whistler B.C. serves up more vertical feet, advanced lifts and various ski terrains than any other resort on the continent. In addition to that, add on three glaciers, 16 alpine bowls and North America’s longest ski season and you have yourself one epic ski vacation.
You can ski the Symphony Bowl and 7th Heaven, before having a quick lunch whilst taking in the breathtaking scenery that surrounds you. The Peak 2 Peak Gondola can whisk you 2.73 miles between Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain in a dizzying 11 minutes. This premier ski resort is a year-round playground. Once the snow begins to melt you can try out a self-guided off the road adventure over 3,937ft of park terrain at the Whistler Mountain Bike Park or learn to wakeboard on Green Lake. However, if moguls, chutes and steeps are not in your vocabulary, you can still appreciate Whistler’s après scene. You can indulge in a candlelit fondue dinner for two at a romantic chalet or rejuvenate at a day spa with a soothing hot oil, shiatsu or Swedish massage.
