Who Should Go: Skiers and snowboarders of any level.
Why We Love it: We might have an affinity to this because, we are from BC. But in realness, there is a reason for why this place boasts itself as a prominent ski & snowboarder destination. Whistler offers not one but TWO peaks for skiers to conquer: Whistler and Blackcomb (who said options were a bad thing anyway?!)
With some of North America’s longest vertical drops, largest terrains, and runs a-plenty, Whistler is a notable destination with acres and acres of runs.
Skiers need not trek far to get there neither, as it’s a brisk two hours from Vancouver. The base of Whistler is a hub for a variety of non-skiing activities. The village hosts a plethora of accommodations, restaurants, and nightlife. For those wanting to sneak in a few last minute runs, the slopes are conveniently located beside the village.
