All About Whistler
Two hours north of Vancouver lies Whistler, a scenic ski village in British Columbia hailed as one of the world’s premier ski destinations. Located at the base of the soaring Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, Whistler boasts thousands of acres of skiable terrain and more than 200 marked trails, with its longest run spanning seven miles, inviting skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels to shred the slopes.
Whistler also boasts an active art scene, with museums, galleries, and studios all over town. The pedestrian-only village is full of cafes and cozy pubs, where you can get a taste of the local après-ski atmosphere with live music, heated outdoor terraces, and prime views of skiers gliding down the snowy slopes. When the snow melts, you can hop on a bike and take to the mountain trails, gather for a lakeside picnic, or boost your adrenaline with a zipline ride.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Whistler?
Whistler enjoys a long yet moderate winter season that spans November through March. Visiting during this time gives you the best chance of experiencing fresh snowfall, whether you’re a pro skier or prefer to enjoy the flurries with a mug of warming mulled wine. During the winter, Whistler transforms into a wonderland as powder-fresh snow, and colorful twinkling lights embellish the trees and buildings and amplify the festive atmosphere of the town. Temperatures start to rise in April and continue to increase throughout the spring months. Summer provides ideal weather for hiking, paddleboarding on the lake, and high-octane activities, including ziplining and mountain biking. Once the ice thaws, the rich colors of Whistler’s surrounding landscape are at their most vibrant.
What are the top things to do in Whistler?
Audain Art Museum
One of Whistler’s cultural hotspots, the Audain Art Museum sits in the center of town. The modern, geometric architecture of the building, which includes a trapezoidal roofline, is a marvel on its own, while the striking combination of natural and contemporary elements complement the bountiful alpine landscape. Throughout the year, you can peruse permanent collections of artworks and temporary exhibitions that feature pieces from Canadian and international artists.
Train Wreck Trail
Train Wreck Trail’s alluring juxtaposition between lush forest and decades-old train cars offers a unique hiking experience that combines art, history, and nature. Rusted boxcars adorned with graffiti and murals are scattered throughout the short trail — a round trip is approximately 1.3 miles. Along the way, you’ll encounter the iconic suspension bridge, which features a playful locomotive-themed design and provides overhead views of the Cheakamus River.
Brandywine Provincial Park
Brandywine Provincial Park lies ten miles southwest of Whistler and showcases the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. Here you’ll find hiking, peaceful picnic spots, and mountain biking galore. Head to the main walking trail for a picturesque stroll to Brandywine Falls, the spectacular 230-foot waterfall. Further along the trail, you’ll find more viewing platforms with breathtaking views of the valley.
