Whistler, British Columbia
One Town, Endless Adventure
An absolute must-see mountain paradise, Whistler is an all-season adventure destination. You can ski, snowboard, kayak, raft, paraglide, cycle, heli-hike, or take a zipline through the woods and land on the back of a pony. Ok, maybe not the last one, but rest assured there are exciting activities for every adventurer, even for the adventurer who prefers exploring spas instead of slopes. *wink, wink
