SLOPES OF MANY ACCLAIMS AND OLD GROWTH FORESTS
Long known for its pristine powder and legendary resorts on both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, this Canadian mountain town and its renowned landscapes are straight out of a Slim Aarons photo. And with 8,000 acres of skiable land (the largest on the continent), it’s no wonder Whistler Blackcomb was chosen as the home of the 2010 Olympic Games.
Walkable, charming and friendly, the village of Whistler (located at the base of the two mountains) is chalet-style and is lined with restaurants, bars and shops. There is a great “Made in Whistler” scene, with items like hand-glazed pottery and wooden art pieces.
The area is increasingly growing its arts and culture scene, and Audain Art Museum is one recent development. Modern and striking, the 56,000 square foot museum is home to a private collection of old First Nation masks, works of post-war Canadian artists and internationally-recognized contemporary artists.
Whistler’s lower elevations showcase a coastal climate. There are spectacular glacier-fed lakes and old-growth rainforests where you can hike among giants on the endless mossy carpet.
Vancouver lies two hours to the south.
