Ski one vertical mile, board down Night Pipe, golf a championship course, party at WinterPRIDE, get married on the mountain.
North America’s number one ski and snowboard resort—Whistler, BC—serves up more vertical feet, advanced lifts and varied ski terrain than any other resort on the continent. Add to that three glaciers, 16 alpine bowls and North America’s longest ski season—and you’ve got an epic ski vacation. On a dream day, ski the Symphony Bowl and 7th Heaven—both before lunch. The Peak 2 Peak Gondola whisks you 2.73 miles between Whistler and Blackcomb in 11 dizzying minutes. Canada’s premier ski resort is a year-round playground. Take a self-guided off-road adventure over 3,937 ft of park terrain at Whistler Mountain Bike Park. Keep your eyes open for black bears and other wildlife at the championship, Arnold Palmer-designed Whistler Golf Club. Learn to wakeboard on Green Lake. Any time of year, toast yourselves over a candlelit fondue dinner for two at a romantic chalet. If groomed corduroy, moguls, chutes and steeps are not in your vocabulary, you’ll still appreciate Whistler’s après scene. Rejuvenate at a day spa with a soothing hot oil, shiatsu or Swedish massage. Browse at over 200 shops and boutiques in the pedestrian-friendly plazas of Whistler Village. Play a game of celebrity spotting at any of Whistler’s fine-dining establishments—famous for their talented chefs and deep wine cellars. Whistler is the Host Mountain Resort of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, February 12-28, 2010 to March 12-21, 2010.
