  • Airport: Vancouver International (YVR).
  • First Stop: Whistler

  • Second Stop: Vancouver
  • Tip: Stay in the downtown core, and bring both your culinary sense of adventure and your walking shoes.


Whistler Blackcomb is considered one of North America’s premier mountain resorts—for good reason. The resort offers exceptional hospitality, a diverse cultural scene, and dramatic scenery. Two mountains, connected by the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, boast more than 200 marked runs, 16 alpine bowls, and three glaciers. Epic skiing, combined with a glamorous après scene and endless off-mountain activities, make this an unforgettable ski vacation.

Framed by the Pacific Ocean and Coast Mountains, Vancouver’s meandering oceanside pathways are the perfect way to explore the city. Close to 20 mi (30 km) of uninterrupted waterfront path surround Vancouver’s favourite neighbourhoods, including the seawall around Stanley Park. Work up an appetite on land or on the water, then enjoy a locally inspired meal on a waterfront patio, and find inspiration for the next day’s adventure.
