Big Things Brewing in B.C.

In large cities, you’ll often hear the phrase “something’s always brewing,” but that saying could rightfully be applied to British Columbia these days. With dozens of craft breweries in Vancouver and Victoria plus one or more in nearly every small town, B.C. has become a destination for craft beer lovers.

The Alpine Loop trail system begins with the Alpine Walk trailhead located mere steps from the Blackcomb Mountain end of the Peak 2 Peak Gondola.

Bear Smart Tips

Bear Smart Tips

Black bears are constantly on the move in Whistler. They can be seen on the mountains, in the Village and in residential neighbourhoods. They are fast — as in covering 50 feet in one second. They swim and climb. Their intelligence is likened to that of the great apes — or a three-year-old child.
