Located in the Canadian province of British Columbia, Whistler is a resort town with a permanent population of just under 10,000. It is a popular tourist destination, attracting around two million visitors each year who are drawn to the area by all the activities on offer, such as alpine skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Indeed, the area played host to a number of events during the 2010 Winter Olympics including Nordic and alpine skiing, and the luge, bobsled and skeleton events. During the summer months, visitors can try mountain biking or walking along the available trails. Thus, Whistler is an ideal place to visit if you enjoy keeping active.
Whistler-Blackcomb is one of the top ski destinations in North America and the terrain is vast, with areas specifically designated for beginners and other areas that consist of chutes and trees for more experienced skiers looking for some variety. Thus, whether you’re new to skiing or snowboarding, you will find a ski slope that meets your needs. Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains are open from the end of November until late April. You may prefer to try your hand at cross-country skiing instead and to explore the area of Lost Lake.
If you visit the area during the summertime you can explore Whistler Mountain Bike Park where there are numerous trails and runs that cater for people of all abilities. There are also hiking trails and the opportunity to try rock climbing, white-water rafting and fly-fishing. Whistler is also home to a number of championship-level golf courses including Nicklaus North, Chateau Whistler and Whistler Golf Club, which makes Whistler particularly attractive to golfers.
If you’re interested in exploring the gay side of Whistler, there are plenty of gay-friendly lodges in the area, whilst the famous LGBT Winter Pride event is held there annually towards the end of January. The LGBT Winter Pride festival includes various parties, a Mr Gay Canada event, activities for non skiers such as dog sledging, wine tasting and cooking classes. The end of the winter pride event is marked by the Snowball closing party.
All in all, Whistler is the place to be if you want to spend time outdoors, appreciate the beautiful scenery and take in some fresh air.
