Whistler, Canada /

The Mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb offer some of the most varied terrain in North America, with skiiing and snowboarding to accommodate any level of skiier.

A true winter enthusiast need not be confined solely to the pistes. Experience the thrill of driving a team of dogs over snow covered fields, the romance of a horsedrawn sleigh ride or as night falls, embark on an exhilarating snowmobile drive through forests of cedar and along frozen lakes. In the bustling village, a plethora of shops, restaurants, cafés and entertainment provide plenty of distraction for those wanting time away from the slopes. The village’s free Fire and Ice firework show lights up the base of Whistler mountain each Sunday. Ski Area Wide empty slopes, long runs and snow clad forests; every day in Whistler offers a new adventure. Start with a mountain-sized breakfast at the zenith of Whistler Mountain before claiming first tracks on a sea of untouched powder; over 8,000 acres of prime mountain terrain just draped in a fresh new carpet of magical snow, a skier or boarder’s dream. With an annual snowfall of 11.9 metres, over 200 marked runs, 16 alpine bowls and three glaciers, there is something for all abilities.
