Skiing, Hiking, Relaxing -- Whistler's a Great 4 Season Destination


Relax in the pool after summertime activities.

Home to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, is a year-round destination perfect for any outdoor recreation vacation. We're excited to announce that Blackcomb Peaks Accommodations has added 42 new vacation rentals in this one of North America's most beautiful places.

Warm weather activities abound, including fishing, golf, hiking and eco tours, mountain biking, river rafting and wine tours. In the winter, you can enjoy Olympic-class skiing and snowboarding, cross country skiing and snowmobiling.

Prime ski in/ski out location.
Whistler is located in southern coastal British Columbia and enjoys mild temperatures in winter with frequent snowfall, receiving about 400 inches a year (34 feet). Ski season runs from late November until April, with temperatures ranging from 28 to 52 degrees on average. For true ski enthusiasts (including many Olympic athletes), ski season can even run into July with skiing on Horstman Glacier. Further down the mountain from the glacier, temperatures are warmer and summer activities abound. In the fall, the weather turns crisp and beautiful. September to November is a great time to enjoy Whistler's many hiking trails.

The Village of Whistler offers plenty of off-the-mountain entertainment. You'll find first-class restaurants, great shopping, nightclubs and more.
