Blackcomb and Whistler mountains form part of the heavily forested slopes of the Coast Mountain Range.
Whistler Village is located at the base of these two world-famous mountains, within a valley that stretches about 8km/5mi from south to north.
A series of glacial-fed and freshwater lakes, streams and rivers wind through Whistler. In the spring and summer, the area teems with flora and fauna found along well-marked trails, in public parks and in the rugged backcountry.
Whistler is a thriving town of about 10,000 permanent residents. During peak visitor months, Whistler's population can swell to over 40,000.
