Legendary Whistler Blackcomb is widely regarded as one of the top four-season resorts in North America.
The resort appears regularly in "Best of" lists from around the globe, winning for its incomparable skiing and boarding, as well as for its hotels, restaurants and golf courses. Whistler became even more world-renowned as the site of the alpine and Nordic venues for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Blending the charm of an alpine village with the amenities of an urban centre, the pedestrianized Whistler Village offers fine dining, vibrant nightlife, eclectic boutiques, revitalising spas and luxurious hotels.
Whistler is great for families too – it was chosen as 2 out of the Top 10 Family Vacations in Canada in the Travellers Choice 2011 Best Family Vacations on Trip Advisor. Catch events like the TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival in April, and Cornucopia: Whistler`s Celebration of Wine and Food in November.
