Two majestic mountains, a vibrant pedestrian village, year-round activities of all kinds and terrific nightlife and dining choices – that’s Whistler Blackcomb for you, truly a Canadian sports and outdoor paradise.
Not only the largest ski-resort in Canada but also one of the most well known in the world, Whistler, with its unique mountain lifestyle, offers an array of sports activities for all seasons. Naturally skiers and snowboarders race to those beautiful mountains but there are also four championship golf courses, a superb mountain bike park, opportunities for hiking, zip-lining and horse-riding, snowshoeing, ski jumping and much more. Try paddle boarding in the summer and tobogganing in the winter. There are fantastic music concerts and festivals in the warmer weather and on July 1, the Vancouver Symphony will perform to celebrate Canada Day.

The nightlife in the village has a great vibe; classic cocktail spots, cozy pubs, nightclubs, après ski bars and of course, dining of every kind imaginable. The pedestrian-only village – the heart of the resort - is great for people-watching, shopping and enjoying every kind of weather. Whistler has it all, no matter the season.
