Whistler ski resort is the perfect choice for your luxury ski holiday for 2014 / 2015. Whistler is North America’s leading ski resort and its attractions are obvious - two massive mountains, covered in extensive slopes, rising high above a village which is packed with great  restaurants, bars, clubs, a wide range of 4-star plus lodging and plenty of other off slope entertainment. As you can see a ski holiday to Whistler has something for everyone.

The twin peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb ski resort, which are linked by the awe-inspiring Peak 2 Peak gondola, are covered in a vast array of trails, with everything from beginner areas to tough tree runs. The resort’s annual snowfall is definitely in the ‘epic’ category too, with an annual average of over 11.9m, pretty much guaranteeing good snow on your Whistler luxury ski holiday. The 2013/2014 ski season saw the opening of 2 new lifts. The Crystal Ridge Express with its terminal location along the Blackcomb Glacier Road ski-out is going to give you the freedom to lap the entire Crystal Zone by allowing you to bypass the Excelerator Express Chair, it also gives you faster access to the Horstman Glacier, Blackcomb Glacier and Spanky’s Ladder. At Whistler Mountain’s Harmony Zone, the new Harmony Express is ready for quicker uploads to its stunning array of powder-filled bowls, steeps and cruisers.

There is much to excite all levels of skier and snowboarder, above and below the tree-line, with 8,100 acres of terrain, up to 1,500 acres of which is groomed each night! Novices will find plenty of interest and intermediates are spoilt for choice, with wide blue runs and lots of challenging single black diamond trails. There are thrills aplenty for the more advanced, with bowls, bumps, glades, steeps and much more available on both mountains. Whistler ski resort also has five terrain parks, a snow cross track and a superpipe. Should that not be enough, Whistler heli-skiing is also available.

Contact us now to guarantee your place on Whistler's amazing slopes and book your luxury ski holiday to Whistler now.

Whistler ski resort's pedestrianised village is packed with attractions, lively clubs blend with delightful dining and stylish stores stand alongside relaxed coffee shops. There is a vast choice of accommodation for your ski holiday to Whistler, from chic apartments to luxurious hotels, but almost without exception well appointed and offering friendly welcomes and great service.

There is an eclectic mix of restaurants to choose from on your Whistler ski holiday - from amazing steaks in Hy’s to Sushi Village’s Japanese delights, from Caramba’s family restaurant to all the fun of the Mongolie Grill. Enjoy a Whistler Tasting Tour for a gourmet dining experience, wine tasting and even champagne sabering! Whistler’s après is almost as famous as its skiing - the GLC at the base of Whistler Mountain is a favourite place after a hard day on the mountain, as is Merlin’s at the foot of Blackcomb, but there are plenty of other bars - including the world's coldest vodka tasting bar - and several clubs to keep even the most energetic entertained through until the early hours.

Activities

There is a huge array of off slope activities on offer on your Whistler ski holiday, including snowmobiling, sleigh rides, tubing and snowshoeing. Thrill seekers will relish the amazing Ziptrek, an exhilarating two-hour journey through the trees along walkways and zip wires and, a legacy of 2010, the sliding centre where you can don a helmet and try bob-sleigh and skeleton!

But there are plenty of more laidback activities too, such as a romantic horse drawn sleigh ride, perhaps combined with a fondue, a number of delightful spas and even the opportunity to go eagle viewing.

Whistler Ski resort is a 2 hour drive up the stunning Sea to Sky Highway, from Vancouver, which is also well worth a visit – harbour-side hotels, colourful markets, lively shopping and plenty of entertainments are all on offer in this glorious ocean-side city.

Insider Tips

1

When riding the Peak 2 Peak gondola, wait for one of the two grey gondolas which have a glass floor!

2

Try a pint of the locally brewed Honey lager. Delicious!

3

Want a quieter holiday? Why not stay in Creekside? Located a short distance from Whistler Village but with its very own gondola with access to all of Whistler Blackcomb's terrain.

4

Buy a Fresh Tracks ticket for the morning's first powder; board the 7.15am gondola, enjoy breakfast in the Roundhouse Gondola and be first on the slopes. If you snooze, you lose!
