Advice for Visitors to Canada
Located 120 kms North of Vancouver, Whistler is Canada’s premier
skiing destination. Once you take off your ski boots you may discover
that Whistler has more to offer than just skiing, even if it boasts some
of the best skiing in the world! You can also enjoy hiking and white water
rafting. Whistler offers world class accommodations, dining and recreational
facilities such as the Whistler Blackcomb Resort, a resort that
offers skiing year round: downhill and heli-skiing in the winter and glacier
skiing in the warmer months.
What to do
Park is a popular destination for outdoor enthusiasts. It offers the
opportunity to view wildlife in its natural environment as well as botanical
delights such as Alpine flowers. There are numerous hiking trails available
through the park, whether you want to hike for a few hours or a few days.
A good hike to take is the Black Tusk Trail: you can hike all the
way to the Black Tusk Meadows. If golf is your game, there are
several great courses in Whistler including, Nicklaus Northern Golf
Course which is nestled in a forest, and the Chateau Whistler Golf
Course. Lost Lake is also another destination for avid walkers and
hikers alike. It is a beautiful lake located fifteen minutes outside of
Whistler and a shuttle will take you straight there from Whistler. Bring
along a picnic and enjoy a lazy summer afternoon.
Just for kids
Looking for somewhere to take the kids? Look no further than the Meadow
Park Sports Center. There are lots of fun things to do for kids including
a fantastic kiddie pool with fountains. You might also want to check out

that promises great adventure for both adults and children.
