The Winter Side of Whistler

The Winter Side of Whistler

Whistler locals and visitors have been obsessed with skiing for half a century, ever since the first lifts opened in 1966. Since those early days, the town’s repertoire of winter sports and activities has expanded enormously. Tubing is a wonderful place to start, as the whole family can enjoy whizzing down the hill on inflatable tubes. Simply head up to Whistler Blackcomb’s Coca-Cola Tube Park, located at the Base II Zone on Blackcomb Mountain. It’s easily accessed from the Village at no cost via the Excalibur Gondola. Be sure to wear warm winter clothing, and for your comfort, a pair of goggles.
Brewmasters' Picks

Brewmasters' Picks

Summer in the mountains calls for crisp, cold beverages on the patio. The craft brewing scene is on fire in British Columbia, and with three taphouses right here in Whistler, there is no better place to soak up the suds scene.

Downhill Shifts Into High Gear

Downhill Shifts Into High Gear

Whistler has a reputation as one of the world’s premier destinations for mountain biking. As the popularity of the Whistler Bike Park began to explode, the town’s status as a mountain biking mecca was secured. This year, Whistler Blackcomb has ambitious plans to add more new trails to the Bike Park, putting more shovels in the dirt than ever. In 2017, downhill mountain bikers will see roughly 12 kilometres of new trails under construction in the recently opened Creekside Zone, not to mention some key additions in existing areas of the park, says Brian Finestone, Whistler Bike Park manager.
Whistler Golf

Whistler Golf

Golf course design is a combination of art, craftsmanship and engineering that melds form with function. A good golf course should be enjoyable, memorable and challenging for all levels of players. The course design should take in and use as much of the natural surroundings as possible; and the design should offer the player strategic options on various shots throughout the round. Based on these criteria, four of the courses in the Whistler area check all the boxes.

In 2017, as Canada celebrates 150 years since Confederation, it’s interesting to note that in large measure, the post-European-settlement history of what is now one of the world’s most popular mountain resort towns parallels the larger story of the West, said Brad Nichols, the Whistler Museum and Archives’ executive director and curator.

Fear of failure: It’s an anxiety that holds many of us back from creative adventures — like painting an iconic landscape, composing a quirky song, making a risky film or writing our life’s story. Rare is the soul who lives an artistic life fearlessly, yet joyfully and with a generous, open heart. The Sea to Sky community was blessed to have such a creative voyager live and work amongst us for many years — artist, DJ and filmmaker Chili Thom.
