Vancouver Canada Tourist Information and Travel Guide
Whistler BC is Canada's premier ski resort. Rated among the world's best ski mountains, the town was selected to host the 2010 Winter Olympics. Needless to say, skiing on Whistler Mountain and the adjacent Blackcomb Mountain is fabulous! The ski season normally begins in mid November and ends in May or June.
If you are not a skier or a snowboarder, a trip to Whistler Village is still warranted. One can take the cable car ride to the top of Whistler Mountain and do some hiking. Alternatively, there is a great golf course in the village and a network or paths and trails that are suitable for walking and cycling. Many excellent hotels and restaurants can be found in the village.
The drive from Vancouver to Whistler is about 1.5 hours. There are also tour buses available from Vancouver airport and downtown Vancouver.
