About Whistler

Canadian mountain resort Whistler Blackcomb is located in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, just 125 kilometres north of Vancouver. Not only has this destination been named SKI Magazine’s No. 1 resort in North America for the fourth time in 5 years but Whistler Blackcomb was also the official alpine skiing venue for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. The largest ski resort in North America with over 8,171 acres and one of the snowiest with 38.2 feet of powder annually. With its dual mountain offering connecting by the marvellous Peak2Peak Gondola, Whistler Blackcomb is a true skier and snowboarder’s dream come true.  The huge, wide-open, and varied terrain of these mountains is ideal for skiers of all levels including families, children and those who are new to the sport.

Thank You - Whistler Peak Lodge family holiday

Rated 5 out of 5
September 17, 2018

Just quick note to say Whistler Peak Lodge was great. Clean, not particularly noisy (It’s a busy party resort after all) and very well located. It is obviously 3* accomodation, I guess built in the 90’s but our room bathroom had been refurbed since then. The general decor was a little tired outside the room, the lifts a bit old, but they had touch card access to doors and lifts, and a spa which was great.
They gave us early access to the room and were very helpful.
We had a great time, decent snow given the late date and everything, from flights to resort connections ran to plan. Great job to your team, thanks. (I’m still battling the bank about my Visa rip off, which I think I’ll lose, but I’m a bit wiser on that score now).
We’d use you guys again and we’d definately go to Whistler again.
Thanks for your help
