With its two mountains – Whistler and Blackcomb – culminating at over 2000m, and a vast skiable terrain, Whistler is one of the world’s most famous ski resorts, a real paradise for snow sports.
It is here that the trials for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games will take place, the Games having been awarded to Vancouver, which is located two hours away by car. If you dream of being transported by helicopter to explore terrain that has never been touched by humankind, Whistler will win you over. The conditions are amazing: over the last twenty years, the average annual snowfall has been 430 cm. From the spring onwards, nature lovers can wind their way through the tracks that connect the valley’s numerous parks and lakes, take a refreshing dip in the water and then stretch out on a sandy beach, breathing a sigh of contentment. The region is magnificently preserved and ideal for all sorts of activities (sailing, kayaking, climbing…) and the village itself is a little work of architectural art. You will find everything there, including nightclubs where atmosphere is guaranteed. So, you’re sporty and you love nature? Welcome to Canada, welcome to Whistler!
