Canada’s number one ski resort has been voted ‘best ski resort in North America’ by
renowned ski magazines for several years. In the host village of the alpine events of the
2010 Vancouver Olympics, you will find excellent skiing and many non-ski activities that
will keep you busy when you are not out on the runs.
Consisting of Blackcomb and Whistler Mountain, the resort offers endless skiing options,
many of them ski in/ski out. Enjoy groomed runs with great skiing for families and
beginners, challenge yourself in off-piste bowls or practice some tricks in the terrain
parks. You can also learn to ski or improve your technique at the resort’s excellent ski
school. While you are skiing, your kids can spend the day at day care, ski school or in ski
camps. They will love the resort!
End your day browsing through the shops in the village’s pedestrian zone. For dinner
choose from a wide array of options from inexpensive pub food to renowned fine
dining. After you have refuelled your energy you can hit the bars and join the crowd for
the legendary après-ski. On a ski-free day enjoy activities such as dogsledding, ziplining,
snowshoeing or a snowmobile ride. If you would like to relax your sore muscles check
out the Scandinave Spa with its superb spa treatments.
The choice of where to stay is yours: stay in the heart of it all in Whistler Village, only

access to Blackcomb Mountain or in Creekside, a cozy village with lift access to Whistler
Mountain.

Return transfers from Vancouver Airport or downtown hotel
Your six day winter adventure begins with your transfer from Vancouver to your
accommodation in Whistler.
The following day is yours to explore the resort. In the evening enjoy a sleigh ride under
the stars from underneath the blankets of your canopied sleigh. On the tour you will
make a stop at a cozy cabin to warm up with hot chocolate by the fire.
Begin the following day with a snowmobile tour into the depths of the valley nestled
between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain. This ride for families and first timers follows
wide mountain trails and includes a perfect mix of easy riding and spectacular scenery.
On day 4 step into a dog sled behind a team of energetic and lovable huskies. Experience
the tranquility and beauty of the Soo Valley as you glide through an old growth forest
alongside the frozen Soo River. This afternoon ride the gondola up Whistler Mountain
and strap on your snowshoes for a trip through Whistler’s most pristine old growth forest.
After all the adventures of the last days day 5 is free to relax and make more discoveries
on your own before your transfer takes you back to Vancouver the next day.
