Travel Tips from people who've been to Whistler
Whistler is my happy place! It can be yours too=)
1 1/2 hours from the heart of downtown Vancouver with an incredible scenic drive along the sea-to-sky highway the whole way there.
The resort features 2 amazing mountains: Whistler and Blackcomb. I heard a rumor that Blackcomb is less crowded because Whistler is the famous one for which the place is named after!! 7th Heaven on Blackcomb is the place to be for sweet powder.
When you're done for the day, the village is great for strolling with an amazing backdrop. Lot's of great shopping + food; I like the arts and crafts store and Splitz burger. They let you choose from a huge array of toppings!
The most beautiful ski resort (winter) or mountain biking (summer) this is just about a ski in ski our town lovely little quaint streets and nightclubs underground to lessen the noise. The hotel rooms come with fireplaces and the town is just lovely. Some adventure here like zip lining on cables throgh the trees up high in the trees or treking up on path and bridges through the high trees . Whistler will also hold some of the winter olympic games there was a luge track been built when we went through Nov 07. Only place I saw a bear in Canada , be careful as they come into town to eat out of the garbage cans
Whistler is a great place for skiing, but there are other options too. There is an adventure store in town that offers guided via ferrata tours. You get to do a small hike on a glacier then climb the via ferrata (iron railroad) up the side of a mountain. Steel bars are mounted into the mountainside. You are clipped in like a mountain climber and climb the bars up till you reach the top. Views at the top are fabulous! You can also buy tickets to go zip-lining. You get to go up into the tree canopies and zip back and forth across a canyon. Loads of fun!
