Year-Round Mountain Paradise in Whistler, British ColumbiaNestled in the southern Pacific ranges of British Columbia’s Coast Mountains, Whistler is a picturesque alpine resort village that is packed with fun for all ages. Best known for its ski slopes on the nearby Blackcomb Mountain, Whistler offers outdoor adventure year-round.
Romantic GetawaysIf you and your significant other are looking to escape to the mountains for outdoor fun and cozy up together at the end of a day filled with adrenaline-racing adventure. Retreat to your own private alpine getaway to enjoy one another’s company. Rental chalets often located at the base of Blackcomb are the perfect hideaways for you and your special someone. Complete with modern appliances, mountain rentals often have ski out points right on the property, so you can hit the trails the moment you step foot out the door.
The seclusion of staying in a rental will give you a sense of privacy and togetherness that a hotel simply couldn't compete with. After being on the slopes all day, unwind with a romantic meal cooked in the chalet’s kitchen and sip wine while snuggling in front of the fire or while treating yourself to a dip in a secluded hot tub with spectacular mountain views.
Family VacationsTravelling as a family can be get expensive fast, however, with vacation rentals, it is possible to find considerable savings (see current properties discounted by the owners) while also improving your family's overall experience. By choosing a rental home, families can spread out without having to pay for a second unit as they would if they were staying in a hotel. Families also have the option to prepare meals in their vacation home. While going out to dinner can be fun, it can become expensive to do it every night, even if you aren't going anywhere fancy. Other meals, such as lunch and breakfast add up fast, especially if your hotel doesn’t include a complimentary breakfast.
Book a place to stay with a full kitchen so that you can ensure everyone is eating healthy, nutritious meals to support their energy for outdoor activities while saving some money and freeing up your budget for more fun experiences. Anyone with kids can also tell you that siblings are easily prone to bickering when kept in too tight of quarters. Rather than cram everyone into one or two hotel rooms, why not rent out a house and give everyone room to breathe? Cabins are available for rent in town where there are plenty of shops and activities for kids. Other cabins are set back in the woods or on the lake which freezes solidly enough in the winter for ice skating.
Experience Skiing at Its Best at Whistler BlackcombOf course, the main reason to consider Whistler is to be here in the winter, so you can go skiing or snowboarding. Whistler Blackcomb has two mountains, more than 200 trails, 16 bowls for snowboarding, three glaciers for heli-skiing and nearly 40 ski lifts. It is the largest ski resort in North America. Towering high in the Coastal Mountains, it receives more than 400 centimeters of snow every winter.
More than two million people come to Whistler Blackcomb every year, most of them to ski or snowboard. However, visitors can also cross-country ski, toboggan, go snowmobiling, snow-shoe, zip-line, go tubing, heli-ski, go to the spa or just shop, dine and party in the beautiful mountainside village that charmed the world during the Olympics.
Home Away From HomeWhen travelling on extended trips, renting a townhouse, condo or other type of property can give you and your companions a sense of comfort after a long day of skiing or hiking. Vacation rentals also have washing machines and dryers so that you can travel lighter. As an added perk, it’s often easier to find a property that allows vacationers to bring their family pets - that way you don’t have to pay a dog sitter or experience the guilt of leaving Fido at a boarding kennel while the rest of the family is off enjoying the fresh mountain air.
