Whistler Holidays

Between the two mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb and the vibrant village at their feet, there’s enough adventure here to last you a lifetime. Perfect for families, a Whistler holiday is an invitation to enjoy nature’s playground, with a whole host of outdoor adventure come snow or sun.

Whistler holidays in winter call visitors to experience the refreshing excitement of drifting down the snow-covered slopes. Why not take a lesson or, if you’re a seasoned pro, try your skill at heli skiing? Soar high above Whistler Village to slopes that only a helicopter can access. Feel the tranquility at the top as you look out over a snowy wonderland, before the thrill of carving your own waves into untouched snow. If skiing and snowboarding isn’t for you, strap on a pair of snowshoes and explore the winter scenery by walking. Whatever your choice of day time activity, experience Whistler’s après-ski scene come to life in the evening, with lively bars, pubs and restaurants teeming with people, and revel in the happy and contented vibe that comes with kicking back after a day on the slopes.

Summer Sun in Whistler

The summer season sees bikers from across the world flock to Whistler’s mountain bike trails. You don’t have to be an expert biker though; there are trails for every ability. If biking isn’t your thing, spend a lazy morning browsing the Farmer’s Market or take to the Peak to Peak Gondola and cruise high above alpine forest, enjoying the other-worldly views on the journey between Whistler and Blackcomb peaks.

Sitting only two hours south of Whistler, a trip to Vancouver makes a great addition to your Whistler holiday. Take the incredibly scenic drive along the Sea to Sky Highway to the city of Vancouver, making time to stop and take in the breathtaking views along the way.
