Why Don't You

Why Don't You

Whistler’s awe-inspiring scenery is the backdrop for an exceptional variety of activities. Why don't you try some of these unforgettable Whistler experiences. Maybe you want to Zip across the valley or Saddle Up! How about letting a professional photographer take you up the mountain and help capture those memories? How about "Flight-Seeing" in a heli tour? Thrill seekers can shoot down the sliding centre's unfrozen track!
Squamish

Squamish

Are you “hardwired for adventure”? If so, Squamish might just be calling your name. The community of 18,000, located forty minutes south of Whistler, is fast becoming a tourist destination in its own right. The New York Times listed Squamish among its “52 Places to Go” for 2015, not just in North America, but the world. CNN Money also named Squamish the “best mountain town” to visit in the summer of 2014.

A popular saying in Whistler is: “It’s not what you do, but what you have time to do!” Whistler’s stunning forests and mountains have diverse biking trails offering something for everyone: whether a casual pedal, a singletrack cross-country adventure or the momentum, thrill and challenge of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
The Winter Side of Whistler

The Winter Side of Whistler

I’ve lived in Whistler for seventeen years and the first snowfall in the valley still lifts my spirits and makes my heart beat faster. I’m still overcome by that magical, childlike sense of awe when I wake up and peek out the blind, expecting a dark palette of brown and green, and discover a bright world dusted in pristine white. I feel extraordinarily lucky to live in Whistler. “Snow days” typically start in November and occur randomly all winter through April.
What We Love Now

What We Love Now

Experience these Whistler treats that we love now! Summer time is gelato time: treat yourself to a luscious cone, created from scratch by Lucia Gelato using only the freshest, most natural ingredients. Sample premium extra-virgin olive oils and specialty vinegars at Olives on Tap and create a perfect pairing for your summer salads. Fulfill your love for chocolate: savour all-natural, handcrafted confections created from the finest ingredients by the Chocolate General Store. Take a journey to Italy: share a freshly prepared, authentic Neapolitan-style pizza baked in a 900-degree wood-fired oven at Pizzeria Antico.
Vancouver Hotel Cuisine

Vancouver Hotel Cuisine

If your idea of hotel dining is a beige room serving beige food to weary travellers, then prepare to let Vancouver blow your mind. Some of the city’s most elegant restaurants are situated inside hotels, with many of its top chefs serving up world-class West Coast fare.

Local ecologist and founder of the Whistler Biodiversity Project, Bob Brett is a passionate lover of the Whistler area’s flora and fauna. He was instrumental in the creation of Whistler BioBlitz (an annual one-day count of Whistler’s species of animals, plants, insects and fungi), and the fall mushroom festival, Fungus Among Us, both organized by the Whistler Naturalists Society.
Where Water Falls

Where Water Falls

Over the course of more than a few frustrating nights in 1996, Tony Greenfield went to bed struggling to think of an idea for how best to share his experience of the natural wonders of British Columbia encountered while working as a silviculturist (i.e., a forester). No inspiration came, until one eureka night when he awoke from a restless sleep, sat bolt upright, and whispered a single word into the darkness: “Waterfalls!”
