    It's tough at the top, but Whistler can handle it

    Is there any ski resort on the North American continent more legendary than Whistler? No, we can't think of one either. It played a major role in the 2010 Winter Olympics, and with its perfect snow sports facilities, jaw-dropping beauty and world-class infrastructure, you can see what the fuss is about. But Whistler vacation rentals are about more than just what happens on the slopes. The town's popular with visitors and seasonal workers from around the globe, giving it a unique, international vibe. And that's before we even get started on its awesome eateries and its killer apres-ski scene.

    Which is more important – the ski or the apres?

    Make no bones about it, most folk booking Whistler vacation rentals have 1 thing on their minds. Boasting more than 200 runs, Whistler is one of the biggest ski and snowboarding resorts you'll find anywhere on earth, and it's got the lifts and infrastructure to keep those slopes fed. What's more, the good times don't stop when the ski boots come off, and the apres-ski scene here is the stuff dreams are made of. Come summer, the salopettes might be back in the wardrobe, but Whistler's just getting started, with a gnarly downhill biking scene, plus hiking trails, spas and events.

    Sometimes it's nice to do things the easy way

    Even if you've no intention of strapping planks to your feet, a ride on the Whistler gondolas is an absolute must. The star attraction is the Peak 2 Peak gondola, which means you can go up 1 mountain, traverse across and come down the other. Back in town, there are plenty of attractions that don't involve getting wet socks. Start by taking in some First Nations heritage at the Squamish Lil'Wat Cultural Centre, then keep the culture coming with a visit to the chic Audain Art Museum, with collections from the 18th century to the present day.

    Where the ski season pretty much never ends

    Yes, yes, we hear what you're asking. And the good news is that Whistler vacation rentals wouldn't be so popular if the snow wasn't totally top-notch. With an average mid-mountain snowfall of 1,170 cm per year, there's plenty of powder to carve your way down. Not only that, but the ski season's incredibly long, with some runs starting up in November and remaining open right into mid-May. While summers are short, they're also warm and dry, and it's an ideal season to test your courage on the downhill biking trails, or take in some hiking in the wider area.

    Whistler resort is a tale of two sisters

    Orientation in Whistler isn't too tricky. The resort is spread across 2 mountains – Whistler (2,182 m) and Blackcomb (2,284 m) – with the pedestrianised village down in the valley below. The snowy sisters themselves are part of the Garibaldi Ranges, most of which is protected as part of the vast Garibaldi Provincial Park. The area's home to all kinds of wildlife including bears, eagles and marmots and, in fact, it's the high-pitched call of the marmot that gives Whistler its name. The area also does a fine line in picturesque waterfalls, of which Shannon Falls and Nairn Falls are the real eye-catchers.
