Take a hurtling trip down the slopes of the skiing capital of British Columbia. The town formerly known as Alta Lake received the name of Whistler, after the whistling sound of the hoary marmots that call the area home, in hopes of the winter Olympics coming to Canada. Hotels in Whistler are all nearby Whistler Blackcomb, the largest ski resort in North America, which has something for everyone, from the best Olympic pro to the earliest beginner. And not to be outdone, the accommodations in luxury hotels in Whistler are world-class, providing close and cozy rooms near all that Whistler has to offer.
Out and About in Whistler
If you are a skier, Whistler is the location for you, and its center is less than 3 miles from the airport. Whether you own skis, need to rent them, or want to pick up a new sport like snowboarding, anything and everything is available to you just a short trip from the many Whistler hotels. It's not all skiing, though. In the summer, the resort switches gears into a mountain biking park, and the many local golf courses ensure plenty of summertime fun. If you're there during warmer months, you might even consider a night's stay at one of the hotels near Alexander Falls, just a short drive away.
Eating and Drinking
The food in Whistler is just as good as the snow. In Whistler Village, you can taste the best of Italian, Japanese, and American cuisine, or simply relax for a drink in the hotel bar. Whistler hotel deals may even have some dining packages available, so be sure to ask. Get yourself to the snow and enjoy the sights and sounds of beautiful British Columbia.
