  • So what's it like?

    Canadian skiing at its best, perfect for all abilities

    Host of the 2010 Winter Olympics and consistently ranked number one ski resort in North America, Whistler is hard to beat. Sitting side by side Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain each boast over 100 runs and are blessed with 10 metres of snow in an average season. The slopes run down into the village where you will find lively après-ski just steps away, with nightlife running into the early hours. The village offers a wealth of shops and a range of dining and accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets.

    Ski information

    Beginners

    Beautiful scenic runs gently meander down the mountain and finish off at the village so a well earned 'pick-me-up' will definitely be the order of the day.

    Intermediates

    Enjoy skiing on slopes groomed to velvety perfection and beautiful long cruising runs, not to mention the incredibly spectacular scenery. Take the Peak chairlift to the top of Whistler mountain and enjoy the blue Peak to Creek run.

    Advanced

    The 12 massive high alpine bowls offering endless off-piste challenges and oceans of powder. The 3 glaciers ensure 100% guaranteed snow all season. Recommended is the Blackcomb Glacier, accessed by Spanky's ladder and Whistler, West, Bagel and the new Flute bowls for some powder skiing.

    Nightlife

    Probably the best après-ski and nightlife of any Canadian resort • lively post ski drinks at the GLC or Longhorn at Whistler base, Merlin’s at Blackcomb and Dusty’s at Creekside - which is where the locals go • for something a little more refined an après ski drink around the fire pits at the Fairmont is worth it and the bars at the Hilton and Four Seasons are very nice • later on the Brew House is where to head if there’s a hockey match on but all the bars within the village are pretty good • for clubs Mojos and Garfinkel are always popular

    Activities

    · Heli-skiing and sightseeing · Cross-country skiing · Sleigh rides · Snowshoeing · Snowmobiling · Zip trekking · Excellent shopping · Spectacular mountain-top sightseeing · Trips to Vancouver and local ice hockey matches

    Eating out

    A huge range and types of restaurants and all of which are really well priced • if you’re after cheap and cheerful then there’s plenty on offer, the Spaghetti Factory or Longhorn Saloon are popular • for really good Canadian fare (ribs, wings, nachos etc etc!) head to the Brew House • the Mongolie Grill and Sushi Village are good fun • massive range of fine dining restaurants, personal favourites would have to be the Aubergine Grill at the Westin and Sidecut at the Four Seasons
