The icy cold weather of winter in the north freezes the lakes and brings snowfall for months on end. While much of the rest of Canada is grumbling about shovelling driveways, Whistler locals and visitors alike are gleefully checking the forecast and peeking out windows in awe at the bounty of snowflakes falling on the valley.
Ah, summer in the mountains: afternoons by the lake, hiking in the alpine, a barbecue and drinks on the patio … what could top that? And what place could be better than Whistler to enjoy it all — less than 90 minutes from Vancouver, with more options for dining, shopping, arts and culture, and outdoor adventure than any other mountain town in North America?
From art and dining to shopping and exploring historic neighbourhoods, there is something for everyone in Vancouver, the largest Canadian city west of Toronto and the country’s West Coast hub. If you only have a couple of days to explore Vancouver, deciding what to do and see in one of the world’s most beautiful cities will depend not only on what strikes your fancy, but on when you visit.
Nestled in a fertile, verdant valley surrounded by incredible mountain peaks, the community of Pemberton is a hidden gem in the heart of the Coast Mountains. Located just 25 minutes north of Whistler, Pemberton (known to locals as Spud Valley) enjoys a slightly warmer and sunnier climate. Offering favourable weather and a large span of level ground, the valley is a prime agricultural zone.
Not long ago, Squamish was one of British Columbia’s best-kept secrets as a tourist destination.
