Consistently voted best ski resort in North America, Whistler lies around 120km from Vancouver and is home to two spectacular mountains connected by a pedestrian village; Whistler and Blackcomb. Purpose-built over the years, Whistler itself is an attractive, largely car-free, modern resort.
Shops, bars and restaurants are plentiful - if you can tear yourself away from the superb slopes, high open bowls and fabulous tree-runs. With no need for connecting flights to get to the resort, Whistler is a fantastic alternative to European skiing. British Columbia's abundant powder snow and superb terrain are why it is home to 90% of the world's heli-skiing operations. Whether you want to do a day or a week, nowhere beats it.
