Whistler

What You Need to Know Before You Go

Whistler is a mountain town in British Columbia and the main tourist hub of Whistler Blackcomb, one of the world’s great ski resorts. Combining 2 mountains and 3 glaciers, there are more than 8,000 acres of skiable terrain. Winter sports fans can enjoy a fantastic range of activities from November to April, but Whistler is not just for winter – this alpine playground is a popular spot throughout the year. In the warmer months, you can enjoy hiking through the forests, swimming in the crystal-clear lakes, and many adventure sports like mountain biking and ziplining.

Whistler Village is a charming, pedestrianised zone that has plenty of dining and boutique shopping catering to the many visitors that pass through. For incredible views, don’t miss the Peak 2 Peak gondola that moves between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. If you’re looking to relax, consider treating yourself to a Scandinavian-style spa session or simply find yourself a peaceful spot and enjoy the majestic natural landscape.
