Located two hours north of Vancouver, the Whistler seen today is half a century in the marking. The area was primarily a small town until Whistler Mountain opened as a ski area in the 1960s, since then Blackcomb Mountain was added, both which merged together to form Whistler-Blackcomb resort which encompasses 8,171 acres of mountain.
Now recognized as one of the top skiing destinations in the world, both the resort and surrounding architecture have won numerous awards - as well, it hosted the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games in conjunction with Vancouver which was the setting for many alpine, nordic and sliding events.
Whistler is not only a winter destination, summer sees thousands of tourists taking to the popular mountain biking trails on Whistler Mountain as well as hiking (or taking the gondola and the lifts) to the mountain peaks to admire the stunning views of the surrounding valleys and Cascade Mountains.
No matter the season, beautiful Whistler, British Columbia is one of the province's most visited attractions!
