Under two hours’ drive from Vancouver along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway, Whistler is the perfect four season destination for active vacationers who want it all.
Winter and early spring offer some of the world’s finest alpine and Nordic terrain, lit by the afterglow of Olympic glory. Whistler Blackcomb offers some of the most fantastic skiing in North America with over 8,100 metres of ski terrain ranging from beginner to expert. Sleigh rides, snowshoeing, skating and snowmobiling are great, family-friendly alternatives to a day on the slopes.
Spring, summer and fall feature outdoor fun on five lakes, four championship golf courses and the largest lift serviced mountain bike park north of California, providing access to a seemingly endless variety of biking terrain—from high alpine single-track to paved cruiser paths. Heli-hiking, fly fishing, glacier scrambling and rock climbing are also popular ways to work up a healthy summer sweat.
The area lakes are perfect for canoeing, swimming, fishing, paddleboarding and relaxing on the sunny beach. Local rivers are a white-water rafting enthusiast’s dream. For some high-flying fun, zipline from tree to tree and experience the old growth forest from a new perspective.
Whistler offers unparalleled golfing with four championship golf courses designed by four of the world’s top course architects. It is consistently rated the number 1 destination for golf in Canada and should easily make the cut for a golf getaway.
