When it comes to location, The Westin Resort & Spa in Whistler takes some beating. Access to the incredible skiing that Whistler is renowned for could not be easier, as the hotel is literally at the base of both the Whistler and Blackcomb gondolas which whisk skiers up the mountain in minutes. The children's ski school is only 20m from the hotel, making it perfect for families with younger children. And just a few steps from the hotel brings you to the very heart of Whistler village, with its extensive range of bars, restaurants and shops.

But of course you must, as Whistler has so much to offer. The skiing is world class and the resort is, of course, best known for hosting the 2010 Winter Olympics. There are a multitude of activities to get involved in away from the slopes: zip trekking, snow tubing, dog sledding, heliskiing - try and fit in as many as you can as it's definitely worth it.
