Ski & Snow / Whistler, Canada

The acclaimed ski resort sits on the rugged west coast of Canada, just a short drive from Vancouver – a direct flight makes it the perfect alternative to European skiing. Formed by two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, there are endless challenges on both peaks including extensive off-piste and back country skiing with a guide. The blissful variety and scope of the area provide an intermediate’s pic’n’mix of long cruising runs mixed with steeper challenges; superb heli-skiing terrain can also be appreciated by good intermediates. At the foot of the slopes, Whistler’s traffic-free village is awash with upscale boutiques, restaurants and bars. The scintillating scene is bedecked with thousands of colourful lights and further enhanced by winter events including the annual World Ski & Snowboard Festival and the weekly Fire and Ice Show – a skiing and firework spectacular. Carrier features some of the best hotels in Whistler, such as: The Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Four Seasons Resort and Residences Whistler and The Westin Resort and Spa.

Snowfall

Whistler and Blackcomb are two side-by-side mountains which offer some of the best skiing in the world. This ski resort has one of the longest ski seasons in North America and next season is expected to be a strong La Nina which brings excellent snow fall in Whistler and Blackcomb. La Nina means that temperatures will be lower than average with abundant snowfall.

Best experiences in Whistler

  • Play a round of Glacier Golf - take a heli-trip out to a nearby glacier where you can try your hand at teeing off on the ice.
  • Ski in Whistler with a member of the Canadian Winter Olympic Team and enjoy your very own Olympian experience.
  • Let The Adventure Group take you on a Superfly Dinner Tour; ride in a snowcat up to the mountain top for a private group dinner, then soar back to the valley below on four incredible side-by-side ziplines.
  • Indulge and relax in the hot baths and refreshing waterfalls at the Scandinave Spa. Immersed in a spruce and cedar forest on the edge of Lost Lake and Spruce Grove parks; unwind in this unique Whistler day spa whilst you look out onto incredible mountain vistas and Whistler Blackcomb's valleys.
  • Whistler for families is excellent; whilst you enjoy your luxury family ski holiday, you can take your little ones to the Magic Castle on Blackcomb and Tree Fort on Whistler. The fun adventure play lands provide a little magic for families to find and explore whilst taking a break from skiing or snowboarding.
  • Whistler has a reputation for unsurpassed heli-skiing and boarding. A thrilling adrenaline-filled experience suitable for good intermediate skiers and above, travel by helicopter to make fresh tracks on otherwise inaccessible vast powder fields and glaciers.
  • Suspended high above the valleys and peaks of Cougar Mountain, launch yourself into the sky and feel the rush of the mountain air as you speed at up to 100 kilometres per hour on the longest tandem ziplines in Canada; not for the faint of heart, the new Superfly zipwire has side by side ziplines so you can take a friend along for the ride - or for moral support - through the skies above British Columbia's backcountry.
  • Take the option of floating through Whistler's forest canopy on a treetop adventure course.  With over 70 challenges from suspended bridges, Tarzan swings, ziplines, tightropes and more, you can get your adrenaline rush at a more sedate pace.

 

When is the best time to visit Luxury Whistler Holidays?

The best time to visit Whistler is in the winter months. With plenty of powder, an array of winter sports choices and extraordinary festivals, it is suitable for both skiers and non-skiers alike. Whistler is currently going through La Nina so be sure to pack plenty of layers and a warm winter jacket. The best hotels in Whistler tend to get fully booked quite far in advance for the winter season; we recommend you book your next luxury ski holiday as soon as possible.
