Whistler and Ski British Columbia

The first week of your itinerary will be spent in the wonderful resort of Whistler. Consistently voted the best ski resort in North America, Whistler is one of North America's most loved ski areas, with its incredible combination of large above-the-treeline open bowls, wonderful tree runs, cruising terrain, glacier skiing, chutes and gullies, backcountry guiding and fabulous heliskiing.

The action continues off the slopes with an abundance of activities on offer; from zipling to snowmobiling, snow tubing to dogsledding - in fact there's so much to do off the slopes it is worth taking a day off from skiing and trying some of these activities.
