Awesome place to ski and snowboard. The scenic views from the peak of the mountains are amazing. When snow is fresh, and the sun is out, this is one of the best places to ski and snowboard in the world. Check out whistler bowl, seventh Heaven, and don't miss doing the peak to peak!
Incredibly beautiful scenery and only getting better with the winter months coming. Only downsides being the cost of living here. Due to it's ever growing popularity, Whistler suffers due to a lack of housing and even more so affordable housing in order to keep up its appearance. It would highly benefit from greater staff housing but this would just make it even busier with the reduction in house prices so... go whilst you still can!
Brilliant place. Good piste, park, we had POW! good restaurants (do your research though). Low altitude! Recommended!
World renowned skiing. You can easily spend a week here and never ski the same area day after day. If the weather isn't what you like, just venture to another lift. Try the peak to peak gondola. Wander the village for shopping and food. Try some other activities like mountain biking, trail running, snowmobiling, etc. Only downside is downhill prices are up to $150/day at the gate now. Get an edge card and/or buy online to bring the price down a little.
What can I say, it’s Whistler. Everyone has at least heard about it and it has something for everyone. I’ve only been for the skiing but I really want to come back for the biking as well. Truly an awesome place. Also the cinnamon buns at the Chic Pea are delicious.
