Whistler

4.4
Home to one of the largest ski areas in North America, former logging town of Whistler provides activities and entertainment for avid nature lovers and adrenaline seekers. In an area offering hundreds of shops, dozens of restaurants and bars, as well as many spas and hotels, it's not surprising that vacations in Whistler appeal to an every-growing number of tourists from distant corners of the world. Consistently listed among Canada's top ski resorts, Whistler is also an ideal choice for warm-weather activities, boasting championship golf courses, hiking trails, and the largest downhill bike park in the world. Most visitors begin their Whistler holiday by driving the "Sea-to-Sky Highway" from Vancouver, a scenic roadway leading through historic mining towns. Whistler is in British Columbia.

Where to stay in Whistler

Whistler caters to guests with a wide selection of accommodations, although budget travelers might struggle to find more affordable options. If you visit Whistler during the ski season, stay in the southern section of town, closest to the main ski lifts. You can also beat the crowds of the town proper and stay farther south in Whistler Creek, where the shores of Alta Lake meet the Creekside gondola. It's worth booking early no matter what time of year you visit, as the town can get incredibly busy even during summer.
