Whistler has been consistently ranked the number one resort in North America for more than a decade. It is easy to see why, with it`s two spectacular mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, unparalleled ski conditions, four professionally designed championship golf courses, more than 90 restaurants, bars and night life spots, enough accommodation for a small country, hiking trails to the top of the world, outdoor adventures for every fear level, spas to pamper your every inch and without a doubt the largest, most insane mountain bike park in the world. Why would you want to go anywhere else when you could do it all in one place, in Whistler BC.
While there are many wonderful aspects of Whistler that even some of the locals don't know about, here is a small list of the main Whistler attractions:
If it is the night life or Apres-ski you seek, there is nowhere better than Whistler Village.
The village is easily accessible from everywhere in the town, either by foot, by bike, by free ski shuttle or by car. In the Lower Village you will find a variety of restaurants cater to every type of palate and budget. There is truly a very wide selection from international awarded restaurants to just little hang outs for a bite to eat. You will certainly find exactly what you and your party are looking for.
The Village is also the center of both the Summer and Winter events featured at Whistler. Don't be fooled into believing that the skiing events are the only attractions worth visiting because you would then miss out on the summer events, which are equally exciting. Whistler has some amazing mountain biking that really should not be missed.
So if you are waiting to experience the very best in skiing, mountain biking, restaurants and night life, accommodations, resort atmosphere, golfing, hiking, climbing, river rafting, wilderness adventures, horseback riding, outdoor music events and of course snow, there is no better place than Whistler BC.
No where else in North America can you find more down hill skiing terrain then at Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. With 8,171 acres/3,307 hectares of ski area and 200 plus runs, a 1609 metres/5280 feet vertical drop, 38 lifts, 5 snowboard parks, 2 super pipes, an 11 km run and a season from November to June there simply isn't a better place to come and enjoy the sport. Period.
The mountains also have a little of something for everyone. Try out the beautiful Sunset Boulevard running down the side of Blackcomb Mountain, which is completely suitable for even the most inexperienced skier to feel like they are on top of the world. Perhaps a runs off of the 7th Heaven Express are more to your liking, above the tree line so you are greeted with vast fields of snow, you can float down to the bottom of the chair in clouds of powder. Then test both your level of conditioning and your level of bravery by dropping into the double black diamond runs at Whistler Peak, it's like standing on the edge of a mountain and being able to ski off.
Even though people think of Whistler as a winter resort destination, it most definitely isn't. Summer is just as exciting in the Alpine with more and more activities becoming available each summer. Foremost on the list has to be the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. Where else can you rush down thousands of vertical feet of mountainside, enjoying technical switch backs and spectacular trail construction, only to be able to hop on a chair lift and do it all over again, and again. Do not miss this mountain bike extravaganza, it will be the best riding you will ever do.
While you are visiting, make some time to be around at the end of July for Crankworx in Whistler BC. 9 days, 1,500 athletes and 75,000 fans makes it the best mountain bike competition in the world!

There is just spectacular, luxury and ultra-luxurious. The accommodations are so special, there are architectural features that you could say have become part of Whistler.
