Whistle While You Play

Whistler is a busy place these days: in 2010 Vancouver will host the Winter Olympics and Whistler, a two-and-a-half hour drive from Vancouver along the Sea to Sky Highway, will be in the international spotlight. Among the competitions that will take place at Whistler are men's and women's downhill, Super-G, slalom, biathlon, cross-country, and ski jump. Hit the slopes now, so that you can watch the Olympic competitions with a knowing oh-I’ve-done-that look. With close to 40 lifts and 200 runs divided between two mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, it’s no surprise that skiing and snowboarding is Whistler’s main draw, but there are plenty to do also for those who don’t care much for the white stuff. The town is small enough that you can walk everywhere and there are lots of great shops and galleries showcasing native art along the pedestrian-only Village Stroll, the town’s main street. Take the gondola to the top Whistler, 6000 feet above sea level, for an amazing view—and come the winter season 2008, shuttle between the two mountains on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola.  Stay in style in Whistler vacation rentals.  Enjoy!
