Whistler, the perfect winter destination
Legendary Whistler Blackcomb is widely regarded as one of the top four-season resorts in North America. Whistler became even more world-renowned as the site of the alpine and Nordic venues for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Blending the charm of an alpine village with the amenities of an urban center, the pedestrianized Whistler Village offers fine dining, vibrant nightlife, eclectic boutiques, revitalizing spas and luxurious hotels.
The Westin Resort & Spa
Royal Holiday members can stay at the Westin Resort & Spa, a spectacular hotel located steps from both mountain gondolas, and in the center of the excitement of the pedestrian friendly Whistler Village. All of its 419 residentially designed suites emphasize comfort and convenience with a welcoming fireplace, flat panel television, inviting soaker tub, quality-appointed kitchen, and windows that open to fresh mountain air.
Whistler, British Columbia, is a short trip from Vancouver by road, rail or air. The village is located at the base of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. All the areas are connected by the paved, pedestrian-only Village Stroll. Depending on the season, you can catch events like free open air concerts, street entertainment and markets.
The stunning landscape, pedestrian-only Village and genuine, down-to-earth mountain culture make Whistler an unforgettable year-round destination. Winters provide reliable snow for skiing, snowboarding and Nordic sports while golf, mountain biking and hiking fill the warmer months. Festivals, spas, restaurants and bars combine with endless outdoor activities to make Whistler the ultimate place to escape and unwind.
