Reasons Why Whistler is the Ultimate Ski Destination—Do More Than Ski

Whistler in British Columbia is only 2 hours from Vancouver. It's a ski destination offering the perfect conditions from slopes that test your adventurous nature to ski resorts that are perfect for relaxing. But there is more; here are the top reasons why Whistler is a great activity destination.


The Conditions Are Ideal

The ski season in Whistler is almost endless, which makes the resort accessible for fun on the slopes during most parts of the year. To be precise, winter is an impressive six months and will stretch from November to May. March has the best snowfall coating the slopes with powder-soft snow for perfect skiing. However, if you like it a bit snugger, plan your holiday to Whistler in April when temperatures are a bit warmer, but the skiing conditions are still amazing. You may want to check out some of the great offers extended to tourists at hotels in Whistler BC. Most are simply too good to be true and promise stunning views coupled with all the comforts of a modern ski resort. Popular options like Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside will not disappoint.


The Surroundings Are More than Perfect

Not only is the snowfall impressive, but the surroundings also make Whistler stand out from most other ski resorts. There are over 200 trails spread across the 2 mountains that make up the terrain; plus, a total of 37 lifts mean there is no long wait for your turn to get to the slopes. The double-back diamond runs that Whistler promises are pretty phenomenal and are the biggest lure for adrenaline junkies who can easily test their limits on the slopes. There is of course a learner school if you are not as confident as some on the slopes. But if you are, why not leave the kids in the capable care of instructors and try out some of your aerial stunts because Whistler boasts over 40 jumps located within the terrain parks.


You Can do More Than Ski

Whistler is a ski resort with a difference because its attractions go beyond time on the slope. You can explore the little alpine village, snowboard, zip line or even ice skate. If you need more action rent a snowmobile and go explore the terrain. Conversely, you can choose to snuggle up with hot cocoa and enjoy the hospitality extended to guests at the comfortable ski resorts in Whistler.


Explore the Charming Village

The village is not to be missed if you want to experience it all. Plan a day where you visit the village to be a part of the local culture. The entire precinct is pedestrianised, which makes exploring by foot a pleasure. There is plenty to keep you occupied from shopping at local boutiques to browsing the big-name stores. There is plenty of entertainment too with bars and nightclubs for celebrating your achievements on the slopes.


Go On the World's Longest Unsupported Lift

Your vacation in Whistler is not complete until you have experienced a ride in the world's longest unsupported gondola. Check out the Peak 2 Peak gondola ride, which offers you a very freeing experience coupled with stunning 360-degree views.
