Consistently voted best ski resort in North America, there’s a lot to love about Whistler. Here’s our top five reasons…
1. The skiing
The skiing in Whistler is in a class of its own and justifiably considered one of the best ski destinations in the world. With over 8,000 acres of terrain, it’s one of the largest ski areas in North America and offers a huge variety – from gentle slopes and wide groomed cruisers to tree skiing, backcountry, steep alpine bowls, couloirs and terrain parks.
From après to zip-lining, Whistler has more activities than you can shake your ski pole at including a new “Escape Room” which is seriously fun at every age and sure to test your brain skills.
3. Food & Nightlife
From five-course dining to burger shacks, relaxed fireside lounges to dancing on the tables; Whistler provides a massive range of dining, après and nightlife options. With so much to choose from, we recommend joining one of the Whistler Tasting Tours where you enjoy each course in a different venue with a local food and wine connoisseur.
4. Fun for all the family
The terrain suits all abilities, there’s an abundance of off-slope activities and fantastic ski schools; Whistler is a great choice for families. Ski schools cater for kids from as young as three and there’s also an excellent set up for teens too.
Being only two hours from Vancouver, Whistler is extremely well connected. Why not spend a few days exploring Vancouver or perhaps combine your ski vacation with some sun in California?
