It is the unmistakable energy of this inspiring destination and recent Host Mountain Resort for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, that makes it truly special. Whistler’s vibrant Village, numerous outdoor activity options and two spectacular mountains connected by the world record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, combine to create a natural playground with expansive opportunities for adventure. Abundant snow blankets Whistler’s dramatic landscape including the largest amount of skiable terrain in North America. You’ll cherish the powerful connections you’ll create with the people and with the beauty of this incredible place.
The size of Whistler is staggering. With over 14 alpine bowls, four glaciers, 200 trails, and 8,171 acres of terrain the choice of where and what to ski on either mountain seems endless. Its peaks, at 7,100 to 8,000 feet at the top won’t leave you gasping, while you can still experience it all in one leg-burning run, dropping more than a vertical mile. Consistently rated the #1 mountain resort in North America and among the best four-season resorts in the world, Whistler is simply spectacular.
