Whistler

Whistler

Whether you are visiting Whistler and the Sea to Sky Corridor for the first time or you are a seasoned regular, no matter where today’s adventure takes place, there is one given: spectacular scenery will surround you. Although Whistler has the reputation of being North America’s top four-season resort and the heart of Sea to Sky Country, there is no question you will be equally entranced by the natural beauty in and around the neighbouring communities of Squamish and Pemberton.
Audain Museum

Audain Museum

Few travellers will have the chance to explore Canada from coast to coast to coast to witness the country’s raw beauty. This winter, however, locals and visitors have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the vastness of Canada’s landscapes — in particular, mountain landscapes — from the artist’s perspective. To celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary of confederation, the Audain Art Museum features Stone and Sky: Canada’s Mountain Landscape until Feb. 26, 2018. The collection of artworks is a special exhibition that explores Canada’s alpine landscapes through photographs, watercolours, drawings, paintings and prints.
Adrenaline-Fuelled Adventures

Adrenaline-Fuelled Adventures

While Whistler has epic scenery, luxurious spas and first-class dining, many visitors don’t come here solely with the intention of relaxing or being pampered. Whistler was born out of a spirit of adventure, and if you’re looking to push your limits with some truly challenging and exciting activities, you’re in the right place.
Whistler Eco-Mecca

Whistler Eco-Mecca

Inspired by Whistler Blackcomb, Vail Resorts’ makes ‘Epic Promise’ toward sustainability. Arthur De Jong, Whistler Blackcomb’s mountain planning and environmental resource manager, has long been forthcoming about Whistler Blackcomb’s (WB) failures and shortcomings on the environmental front. It was one of those failures that led to a long string of successes — one that has seen it rise to the status of industry leader.
Where There's Smoke

Where There's Smoke

Cooking with smoke is a red-hot trend that reminds us of crackling fireplaces and toasting our frosty toes. Beyond traditional barbecue (which we love and have lots of in Whistler), smoke flavours penetrate a bevy of fine restaurant dishes, from steak medallions and potato tartiflette to carrots and carbonara.

Tips for finding your way on Whistler Blackcomb

The numbers speak for themselves: With more than 200 marked runs and 37 chairlifts spread across 8,171 acres of terrain, there is a lot of skiing and snowboarding to enjoy on Whistler Blackcomb. Deciding to visit is the easy part; figuring out where to begin is where it gets tricky. When it comes to navigating the mountains, there are a few key tools available to help steer you in the right direction — and toward the best ski runs.
Taste and Indulgence

Taste and Indulgence

Whistler has you covered for tasty food & drink and unique gifts. Indulge in a classic Australian dessert with a “peaked” lamington at Peaked Pies; treat yourself to decadent fudge from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory; pick up a custom gift basket to thank that special person at Blackcomb Liquor Store; order a hand-made pet bowl for the furry family member, from White Dog Studios.
SQUAMISH An Emerging Four-Season Destination

SQUAMISH An Emerging Four-Season Destination

Located halfway between British Columbia’s two top destinations Vancouver and Whistler, Squamish has undergone an evolution of its own over the past two decades, becoming a popular base for outdoor activities. Once known as a forest-industry town and rest stop between the two better-known destinations, the community of 20,000 at the head of the fjord known as Howe Sound has become a mecca for rock climbers, wind sports enthusiasts, hikers, mountain bikers and those looking to be inspired by the spectacular scenery.

My Whistler

My Whistler

At the age of 7 or 8, Dean Nelson knew he was “different” from most other boys, but didn’t tell his parents. He was still “very ambiguous” about his sexuality until 1993, while he was working at the then-new Holiday Inn Sunspree in Whistler, one of the sponsors of what was called Altitude at the time, a.k.a. Gay Ski Week. After coming “out” around that time, he started helping at some of the events. With the festival in need of rescuing, he and a group of friends took a leap of faith by taking over in 2006.
