The wonders of Whistler

Posted on: 03 February 2010 by Mark O'haire

Nestled in the spectacular Coast Mountains of British Columbia, award-winning Whistler features a mountain village unique for its alpine charm, relaxed West Coast ambiance and breathtaking scenery.

While Whistler is frequently rated the Number One Ski Resort in North America, the resort is just as lively in the summer.

Spend a perfect Whistler day exploring cobbled pathways, charming boutiques, and sunny sidewalk cafes.  Or take in the enchantment of summer festivities - colorful comedians, animated magicians and serenading musicians bring the streets of Whistler to life all summer long.  When the sun goes down, Whistler has something for everyone; delectable dining, intimate lounges, vibrant nightlife or a quiet evening amble under the stars. At the end of the day retire to the comforts of your cozy condominium or luxurious hotel suite.

The natural setting of Whistler offers a bounty of activities with unlimited options from alpine sightseeing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, heli-sightseeing, wildlife viewing, tennis and even, summer skiing and snowboarding. Five lakes and countless rivers dot the Whistler Valley, offering ample opportunity for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, river rafting or just relaxing and soaking up the sun on a warm sandy beach. 

Within this mountain paradise are four designer golf courses that have turned Whistler into a golf mecca, including Whistler Golf Club, the Chateau Whistler Golf Club, Nicklaus North Golf Course, and 25 minutes north of Whistler,  Big Sky Golf & Country Club.

For a vacation that is a world apart and above other vacations, choose Whistler.
