Whistler, BC: A Winter and Summer Wonderland


Whistler, BC

There’s a saying that no two days at Whistler are the same and it’s true. You can be skiing the mountain slopes of Whistler one day and mountain biking through the BC forest the next. Although people say Whistler is the place to be in the winter, it would be unfair to say the summer is any less amazing. You cannot imagine how green and and lush the forest and mountain trails are in the summer.

Whistler Village is the place to be when you are looking for places to stay. Thankfully there are a wide variety of Whistler cabins for rent. The lovely thing about Whistler village is that there are no cars allowed. It is a pedestrian village. Bonus: The Blackcomb and the Whistler Gondola all meet at the Village.

It’s Addictive

Whistler is one of those places that sucks you in and you can help but getting caught up in the enthusiasm of the plethora of outdoor activities. It has really become an international destination and not just for skiing.

If you want to do something really extreme or you want to go and do something low key like kicking back at the lodge by the fire then Whistler is the place to be.


Whistler took part in the Winter Olympics as an Official Olympic venue during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Fantastic Olympic legacies like the Whistler Sliding Centre, Whistler Olympic Park and Whistler Medals Plaza, as well as the Mountain Bike Park and the record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, make Whistler a world-class, year-round destination.

The Whistler sliding center still has their Bobsled, Luge and skeleton track. The track is also the fastest track in the world. It is the biggest rush you can ever have. When you are on the track you can’t see anything just the rush of the speed. And the G force and the last turn takes your breath away.


One of the shows that you don’t want to miss is the fire and ice show. The atmosphere is that of a festival. You get the opportunity to watch with your families, friends and colleagues. It is just a fast paced high energy show. It is definitely a feast for the eyes.
