Average time to visit

British Columbia benefits from some of the most regular and the deepest snowfalls anywhere in the world. The average seasonal snowfall at 1600m (5000 feet) is a spectacular 25 meters (75 feet), four or five times the average in most areas of the Alps. Winter temperatures average about 0°C during the day and -6°C overnight in the village with snow typically on the ground from Dec into April. Summers days can be quite warm, with temperatures reaching the high 20s.

Spend a week in fabulous Whistler, enjoying top-notch skiing in one of the world's best ski resorts, followed by a few nights' rest and recuperation on the Pacific coast of Vancouver Island.

  1. Fly to Vancouver

  2. Days 1-7: Whistler and Ski British Columbia

    Starting your journey from Vancouver you will head up to Whistler by road on the Sea to Sky Highway, by day this road transfer is one of the most scenic roads in British Columbia, following the coastline to Squamish and then up to Whistler. Staying in the world renowned Whistler you will have an abundance of experiences available to you, from the first class ski terrain, off mountain winter sports and vast choice of restaurants. It is arguably the best ski resort in North America, offering extensive ski terrain, from high alpine bowls, deep powder and mile-long cruising groomers. Those looking for a romantic and peaceful stay consider staying outside of the main village in Creekside where you have views across Nita Lake.  

    The abundant choice of activities in Whistler include snowmobiling, ziplining, dogsledding, or even try a moonlit snowshoe cookout one evening. Shops, bars and restaurants are plentiful - if you can tear yourself away from the slopes!

    Accommodation: Nita Lake Lodge Ski (6 nights)

  3. Days 7-7: Ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Vancouver Island

  4. Days 7-10: Tofino

    From Whistler, you will drive to Horseshoe Bay for the ferry to Vancouver Island and the far Pacific Coast where the Wickaninnish Inn nestles on rocks, facing the out over the mighty Pacific Ocean.

    As the Westerly winds arrive and the storms roll in, snuggle in front of your fireplace and watch the 20-foot breakers explode against the rocky shore. Look out for the grey whales on their migration from Baja to Alaska - they meander past the Tofino shores, stopping to rest with their new calves and bulk up in the nutrient rich waters.

    Go beachcombing along Chesterman Beach for nature's bounty. For more indulgent relaxation, book a spa treatment at the Ancient Cedars Spa or spend a day at the mineral hot springs, Hot Springs Cove, waves permitting!

    Accommodation: Wickaninnish Inn (3 nights)

  5. Fly home from Tofino


  • Riding the Peak 2 Peak Gondola

    Riding the gondola between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains is an exhilarating experience that everyone should try on their vacation - the views are spectacular. Combine with a hike to Little Whistler Summit (approx. 2 hrs round trip hike).

  • Walking trails in the Pacific Rim National Park

    Close to Tofino and Ucluelet , the Pacific Rim National Park has some excellent designated walking trails in spectacular forest and beach settings.
