Whistler is famous across the world for its «champagne powder». Even during the summer you can indulge in winter sports on the glacier at Blackcomb Mountain.
Whistler, British Columbia’s chic sport winter centre, has for years been North America’s best-known prize-winning ski area. Almost every year it wins numerous prizes: for the best services, the highest quality standards, the exceptional nature of the tourist attractions and sometimes even for the best snow- the so-called “champagne powder”.
With an average of nine metres of snowfall a year, 200 slopes and three glaciers with a height difference of 1600 meters, Whistler can never be boring. Choose between superbly prepared slopes, empty plateaus, steep humpbacked slopes or natural deep snow. Good skiers, for whom this is still not enough, can take part in guided ski tours outside the ski area. Enjoy deep powder snow all day long on broad open slopes and steep tree covered descents. Even more ambitious skiers and snowboarders, for whom this is still not enough, can fly by helicopter to the empty mountain chains of the Chilcotin Mountain, where they can enjoy breathtaking descents in solitude.
Skiing is possible at Whistler even in summer. If you still want more after a successful game of golf on the internationally famous courses or an adventurous trekking tour, the high Horstman-Gletscher on Blackcomb Mountain offers highly demanding slopes year round. Whistler Village, only 125 kilometres north east of Vancouver, has a lively, car-free pedestrian area with many restaurants, shops and bars. In the evening, you can plunge into Whistler’s pulsating nightlife. A wide range of restaurants, shops, discos and concert locations await you in a superb setting.
