Whistler, B.C. – While it may not be quite time to retire the season’s flipflops and bathing suits, don’t let the summer heat fool you – it is time to plan for the ultimate winter vacation at Whistler.

Opening for the winter each November and offering spectacular snow and sun conditions throughout the spring (not to mention glacier skiing and riding in the summer), Whistler has one of the longest ski seasons in North America and averages nearly 12 metres of snowfall annually.

With only a few months from the opening day of the 2014/15 season, and exactly one week to cash in on the August 31 deadline for the best early booking offer of the season, there’s no time like the present to put the Whistler winter vacation plan into action.

When booking their winter vacation package by August 31, Whistler guests can save up to 45 per cent on the accommodation and lift ticket prices. And the longer you stay, the more you save. Seven night packages start at $85 per person, per night with five night packages starting at $92 per person, per night and four-night packages starting at $97 per person, per night. Book by the August 31 deadline and receive additional savings on snow school, rental equipment, airport transfers and activities.

Whistler-based travel consultants at whistler.com can customize vacation packages, taking care of flights, ground transportation, accommodation and activities. Whistler.com offers the largest selection with no booking fee for accommodation and activities. Call 1.800.WHISTLER (1.800.944.7853) to request a no-obligation quote or visit whistler.com for more details and offers.
