Whistler Travel Guide
Welcome to Whistler!
Situated in the middle of Sea to Sky Country and only 176 km (109 mi) from Vancouver, Whistler is one of North America's premiere resort destinations. During the winter months, Whistler becomes an alpine paradise, with Whistler Blackcomb and its legendary ski resort being the centrepiece. The resort's global significance is evident as Whistler Blackcomb has been tabbed as the site for a majority of the alpine events at the 2010 Winter Olympics. After a day on the slopes visitors can ski directly into Whistler Village, home to a variety of fine restaurants, local shops, decadent spas and specialty boutiques. Often thought of as a winter playground, Whistler also flourishes during the warm summer months. Whistler Blackcomb transforms into a world-renowned mountain bike park and the surrounding area is littered with championship golf courses. Other summer attractions include fishing tours, white-water rafting and an abundance of hiking trails and natural parks.
Hotels & Motels
The Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside is the closest resort to Whistler Village Gondola and Blackcomb Excalibur Gondola and offers the finest ski-in / ski-out location in the Village.
Located in the Coast Mountains of BC, Whistler Blackcomb is famous for its challenging terrain, animated village life and west-coast friendliness.
