Whistler is magnetic. From the unmatched alpine terrain to the endless options of the Village, its diverse offering of rugged West Coast beauty, passionate community and refined experiences make every visit unique.

The Mountain

The legendary ski destination is just a two-hour drive from Vancouver along the awe-inspiring Sea to Sky Highway. Located in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler is an international ski and snowboard mecca and a down-to-earth mountain town.

Whistler has one of the longest, most reliable snow seasons in North America. Every year, a record-breaking average of 11.7 metres (38.4 feet) of snow covers the iconic terrain of Whistler Blackcomb resort. Its side-by-side mountains are connected at their tops by the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, linking 16 alpine bowls, three glaciers, more than 200 runs and 8,171 acres of skiable terrain on a single trail map. The rugged beauty of the landscape, full-on alpine terrain and vast novice areas have kept Whistler on every passionate skier’s bucket list for over 50 years.

When your day on the slopes is done, enjoy easy access to the base village with accommodation, shops and an unbeatable après-ski scene located just steps away.

At the foot of the mountains lies Whistler Village, the beating heart of the valley. Here, the energy of a social community is palpable, driven by locals who bring their up-for-anything attitude to every shop, restaurant and gathering place. The Village is also a jumping-off point for outdoor adventure, with tons of options like ice-skating, tubing, spas, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ziplining and more than 160 km of groomed Nordic ski trails, to name a few.

True to its bold and cultured character, Whistler’s offering of accommodation and experiences let you indulge all the senses. From the cultural to the culinary, the educational to the entertaining, Whistler’s boutique shops, museums, restaurants, galleries, events, and festivals deliver countless options for all.
