Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort

Whistler Blackcomb Ski ResortThe Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort was the home of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Even if you could not go for the Olympic Games, this ski resort is still a fantastic place to go for a family vacation, any time of year. If you are looking for a quieter place, out of the big city, this is the place to go.

You can ski in the largest terrain in North America at the Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort which also offers cross country skiing. Many sites were expanded or improved due to the Olympic Games.

If you do not want the cold weather aspect of a Canadian vacation, consider going there in the summer. Home to hiking and amazing biking trails, swimming, fishing, boating, golf, and sailing, Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort is a wonderful place for an outdoor vacation any time of year. Go ahead and book your vacation rental and look forward to a special week with your family.

The Meadow Park Sports Centre offers year-round activities for the family. There are two pools, one designed for children, a hot tub, skating rink, fitness rooms, and squash courts. Skate rental and towel rental are available.

Whistler Village itself is home to about 9500 permanent residents, and 2300 seasonal residents, but there are 11,500 second-homes—many of which are rented out for visitors. A true home away from home, a vacation rental can be a lovely place for your family to stay. Located about 25 miles from the ocean, and a two-hour drive from Vancouver, you can see the beach as well as the mountains and shop in a large urban center if you like.

Other attractions available near the Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort are the Whistler Film Festival, held annually in winter. The Whistler Public Art Projects are also quite interesting. Located in Whistler Village, Village North, Upper Village, and Whistler Creek, they offer a variety of local culture and interest.

By renting a house or condo, you can often save money, have your family all under one roof with no locked hotel doors between, and do some of your own cooking if you want. Imagine your family all gathered round with cocoa and popcorn, perhaps by a cozy fireplace, relaxing together in a comfortable home after a busy day at the Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort or other local activities.
