    Absolutely stunning!!! I recently skied in French (Mont Blanc) and Swiss (Leukerbad) Alps and they just didn't compare to the skiing in Whistler. I grew up in the area and never realized how fortunate I was to have Whistler practically in my backyard. I will definitely ski more after my last experience. Wide, smooth runs that go on FOREVER, and endless number of runs, so much to see, so much to do. You could easily spend an entire season up there!

    If you have the time and the cheddar, you must show your respect to the slopes. I have skied the Alps and Rockies. for me it was a combo of the two, snow pack and density altitude and difficulty where all epic attributes. not to mention Canadian women are super low maintenance and beautiful. Hope I can return soon.

    This is the best ski resort in the world. The various terrains of runs you'll hit is absolutely incredible. From very beginners to advanced, Whistler not only has riding conditions for everyone, but even at the end of a week of riding, you will have hardly touched everything this place has to offer. Also, this is only talking about the winter activities.

    Whistler is an amazing ski resort with more acreage than any other North American ski resort. Basically, it is 2 resorts (Whistler & Blackcomb) in one. However, it rains a lot. Whistler has 180 precipitation days per year. Only 1/3 of days are sunny. If you are a really good skier, this place is for you because you can ski for a week and keep finding new terrain. However, if you are a casual skier looking for groomed runs and sunny skies, you may do better elsewhere.

    I was here during the summer and there is so much to do. Would really recommend getting the day pass for the gondola, ski lifts and the peak to peak. It works out around $55 but worth every bit. The scenery is just amazing. Also would advise you to arrive early and some nice hikes too.
