British Columbia Hotel Reservations
Winter in Whistler is a Scenic Masterpiece
Take a break from the lively city of Vancouver, by traveling north on British Columbia Highway 99, also known as the Squamish Highway.
Travelers along this vital north-south thoroughfare will find the resort town of Whistler. This popular British Columbia town in the Coast Mountains, has become a large urban center not only in the province of British Columbia, but in the entire country of Canada.
This popular town of approximately 9,000 residents receives as many as two million visitors each year. The majority of visitors visit Whistler for outdoor recreation at Whistler-Blackcomb, North America's largest ski resort.
This impressive ski resort features the highest vertical skiable distance, more than two hundred ski runs and the Peak 2 Peak Gondola system, transporting passengers between Blackcomb and Whistler mountains.
Whistler-Blackcomb hosted the bobsled, luge, Nordic, skeleton and alpine events during the 2010 Winter Olympics. While on Whistler Mountain, be sure to capture a picture of the statue of Llanaaq, the mascot of the 2010 Olympics.
During the summer, Whistler Mountain Bike Park is home to an average of 100,000 mountain bikers ready to ride more than 47 trails.
