Suggested tweet: #Whistler, it’s the little things that may surprise you. #LittleThingsWhistler


Whistler, B.C. – In Whistler, while the big things may be obvious, it’s the little things that might surprise you.

In Whistler, big mountains and big terrain make for the best winter holiday. Consider: two mammoth side-by-side mountains with a combined total of over 200 marked runs, 8,171 acres of terrain, 16 alpine bowls and three glaciers and a snow season that extends from November to May. What more could a winter vacation seeker ask for?

Believe or not, there’s more: A vibrant and bustling village, activities to suit all adventure levels, a thriving arts and culture scene, exquisite culinary experiences, shopping, spas and nightlife – all of this combine to give Whistler’s its unmistakable energy and its remarkable vibe.

Follow your nose to the sweet aromas of fresh waffles (and toppings galore) atop Blackcomb Mountain at the Crystal Hut. Keep your boots on and dance with family and new friends at Whistler’s famous après-ski sessions. Catch sight of Whistler's best skiers and riders playing with fire – jumping and flipping through a blazing hoop at the Fire and Ice show. Magical moments happen when you’re surrounded by nature; feed Whistler’s local fly away resident, the Whiskey Jack bird between chair lifts. Take a visual journey through Whistler’s little things to understand the big experience, visit:

These intrinsic moments of wander, from epic eats, to extraordinary adventure and snowcapped journeys, combine to cement Whistler’s standing as the World’s Best Ski Resort, as noted by readers of Ultratravel magazine for the last two consecutive years.
