Was in Whistler in Summer for a weekend trip, over 15 yrs ago when it took almost 4 hr drive there from Vancouver, well before the roads were expanded for 2010 Winter Olympics.
Whistler is an amazing mountain to visit not only in the winter but summer as well! The snowboarding and skiing options are endless with all levels available for even beginners! The summer offers all the greatest downhill biking, trail running and hiking til you drop! Once you are finished with that u can refresh your body in several local lakes!
North America's premier ski resort is practically a year round destination with mountain biking & golfing in the summer as well. The Village has the European chalet ambience & the slopes are world class as this is site for the alpine events for the 2010 Olympics.
Came to Whistler Village for my first time and I can't believe how much this place has to offer; even in the summer. Great expansive views, unlimited outdoor adventures, plenty of shopping and eating and so much more. I also love how the arts council here has lots of music playing all around the village.
