Whistler

Arguably the planet's top all-season resort

histler Blackcomb is consistently named North America’s #1 resort, and it’s not hard to understand why. Skiers and boarders can explore more terrain here than anywhere else on the continent, with the summits of two legendary mountains – Whistler and Blackcomb – connected by the spectacular PEAK 2 PEAK gondola. In summer, the pedestrian village is alive with hikers, mountain bikers, golfers and people watchers. Even the drive there will make your heart skip a beat: access from Vancouver is via the Sea-to-Sky Highway, which follows a stunning coastline for much of its length.
