Whistler Travel Guide



Whistler is a resort town in the province of British Columbia, Canada. Named for the hoary marmots that live in the area, it is incorporated as a district resort municipality, and has a permanent population of approximately 9,965. Over two million people annually visit Whistler, primarily for its world-famous snow skiing and Mountain biking.

Whistler is located on Highway 99 north of Squamish. Whistler has a large village which is pedestrian only in the middle of what is called the village. Intrawest runs both Whistler and Blackcomb. Whistler also enjoys astronomical real estate prices. As of December 2005 Rooms in hotels with 1 bed, no kitchen and a washroom sell for over 100,000 CND$ Remax Sea to Sky as of December 14th 2005 had 254 Listings. Only 3 were under 100,000, two were parking stalls and one was a timeshare.

Whistler, 56km beyond Squamish, is Canada's finest four-season resort, and frequently ranks among most people's world top-five winter ski resorts. In 1996, for the first time ever, Ski , Snow Country and Skiing magazines were unanimous in voting it North America's top skiing destination. Skiing and snowboarding are clearly the main activities, but all manner of other winter sports are possible and in summer the lifts keep running to provide supreme highline hiking and other outdoor activities (not to mention North America's finest summer skiing). Standards are high, and for those raised on the queues and waits at European resorts, the ease with which you can get onto the slopes here will come as a pleasant surprise.
