Whistler BC, Canada is best known for being home to Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains - the continent's two greatest vertical-rise ski mountains with the largest terrain of any ski area in North America, huge alpine bowls, expert grooming and ski runs that last forever.

Perhaps maybe not so well known is Whistler's accessibility. Whistler is only two hours from Vancouver along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway and five hours from Seattle, Washington. Travel to the resort is easy via air, train or bus.
This year-round resort is ever-popular for the abundance of activities on offer. It's impossible to get bored with skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling and snowshoeing to entice during the winter months and mountain biking, golf, hiking, rock climbing and watersports all available during summer.
Whistler Resort, a site of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, also includes a vibrant pedestrian village. Whistler Village joins the base of the mountains, and is filled with restaurants, patios, cafes, bars, shops, galleries and spas - all surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of Whistler Blackcomb.
It's often a jam-packed events calendar which draws people to Whistler. There's Whistler Pride and Ski Festival (formerly WinterPRIDE), one of the biggest and best Gay Ski Weeks in North America, World Ski and Snowboard Festival in April, Cornucopia in November and the Whistler Film Festival in December - all events consistently attract visitors from around the world. Of course, everyone should be lucky enough to experience a Whistler Christmas at least once.
