Whistler-Blackcomb is consistently ranked the # 1 Ski Resort in North America by Ski Magazine and is located in the Coast Mountain range of British Columbia. We will be on the site of the 2010 Olympics. There are two world class mountains to ski, Whistler and Blackcomb, now connected by a mid-mountain Gondola! We will be staying at Whistler's Crystal Lodge in the center of Whistler Village. Location, Location, Location!!! (www.crystal-lodge.com)

Join M.A., Phil, and your friends who have skied Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain before. W-B has been Rated # 1 Ski Resort in North America for the last decade. This was the host mountain for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympics' Winter Games. There's so much to do in Whistler that you can’t possibly ski the entire mountain in one week, but we can try. (www.whistlerblackcomb.com)

Whistler is one of the premier ski resorts in the world. The Village at Whistler is a car–free area and has an eclectic array of shops, restaurants, and bars that reflects the international makeup of the skiers/riders who come to Whistler from all over the world. We should stay for a month to let you sample all the restaurants and meet the friendly visitors from other countries. Shopping is an intensive activity, and more than the usual ski town goods are on display. In addition to skiing, there are activities such as snowmobiling, dog sled rides, and hiking for everyone to enjoy. Day tours to Vancouver are also available.

Whistler is the largest ski area in North America, encompassing both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. It has more acreages and vertical drop than any other resort and more slopes of all abilities than you will be able to ski during our visit.
