One of North America’s giants, with more than 200 trails spread between its two peaks - Whistler and Blackcomb mountains (linked by the ‘Peak2 Peak’ Gondola) - tower above a spine of peaks that rise from British Columbia’s fjorded Pacific coastline in the heart of the impressive west-coast mountains just 75 miles north of Vancouver. The resort has become the pride of Canada’s Pacific North West. The mix of chalet-style apartments, inns, lodges and condominiums and pedestrianised streets is easy on the eye and conveys more than a little Alpine ambience. Skiing in Whistler - whether you stay in Whistler Village or adjacent Blackcomb - you’ll have resort facilities virtually on your doorstep. Whistler ski resort has frequently been ranked as the number one all-round ski resort in North America by independent surveys and it’s easy to see why - rising one vertical mile from the village, both mountains offer superb skiing – on piste and off - on a wide variety of terrain, suited to all abilities. Even skiers who don’t have the confidence or the ability to ski Whistler’s bowls can ride up and take a look: an easy circular tour called Burnt Stew Trail wanders the rim of the whole area.
