Where is it?
The resort destination of Whistler is nestled below the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in the Whistler Valley, north of Vancouver, British Columbia. In recognition of its world-class status as a ski resort, the cosmopolitan Village of Whistler will co-host the 2010 Winter Olympic Games with Vancouver. Enchanting Whistler continues to be the fastest-growing municipality in BC, and has been recognized as the Top Ski Resort in North America for the past decade.
Something magical happens when you arrive at the summit of the small valley that contains Whistler. A cluster of small lakes is gathered here, reflecting the outlines of the mountains high above, including Alta Lake, the great divide in the Sea to Sky corridor. No other lakes have scenery quite like this to mirror.
When you let your eyes rise from the reflection to admire the real thing, the contours of the ski runs on Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains pattern the forested slopes. Above the tree line, you can still see remnants of the most recent ice age in the glaciers that encrust the highest peaks. Take a deep breath of the freshest air imaginable, and prepare for a magnificent playground called Whistler.
Whistler is a four-season destination, offering the greatest vertical drop on the continent, more than 7,000 acres of skiable terrain in winter, and endless outdoor activities in the summer. These include downhill & cross country skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, downhill and mountain biking, swimming & shopping.
