Winter Holiday: Whistler, BC

Winter Holiday: Whistler, BC

Whistler is a true winter wonderland and an outdoor lover's playground. Bursting at the seams with all sorts of snowy activities and postcard-worthy landscapes, I spent a week in -15 degrees enjoying all the unique things to do in Whistler. To get to Whistler, you'll need to fly into Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and then either rent a car to drive yourself up the Sea-to-Sky Highway, or book a ticket on the Greyhound. Buses run from YVR or from Main Street Skytrain Staion.

Where to Stay in Whistler

I stayed at my boyfriend’s ski-in-ski-out cabin right on the hill next to Blackcomb. Cabins are often available for short and long term rentals via the Whistler site. I suggest this sort of accommodation, in order to feel a bit more at home and to be able to spread out your gear a bit more. If you’re looking for a full-service option instead, I suggest both the Fairmont Chateau and the Westin Resort & Spa – located within close proximity to all the amenities of Whistler, including ski/board rentals, dining and shopping.
