Canada: Whistler Sightseeing & Transfers


Canada: Whistler Sightseeing & Transfers

story by: Inspire Canada & Alaska

As host for alpine and Nordic events at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, Whistler clearly has world class credentials for the quality of its skiing and snowboarding. Whistler and Blackcomb mountains have more than 200 marked trails between them – paradise for lovers of winter sports. However, this village is a destination for all seasons. When the snow has gone, out come the mountain-bikers to tackle the adrenaline pumping rides in North America’s largest bike park and golfers head for scenic championship courses. Try ziplining above the forest, hiking in the wilderness or take it gently and board a gondola or chairlift for panoramic views of glacier-topped mountains and alpine lakes. Whistler Village’s après ski scene matches its world-class ski runs and boasts a vast array of restaurants and boutiques, some specialising in First Nation art and jewellery.
    Squamish Lil Wat Cultural Centre in Whistler is dedicated to the history and culture of local First Nations showcasing traditional singers and dancers. You can spend a good day here – watch the artists weaving and carving, explore nature on the Cultural Forest Walk, visit the gift shop and taste indigenous food at the café. There are also outdoor exhibits and displays within the centre.
