Where Vancouver - - Navigate - —Chloë Lai

Two hours of scenic driv­ing on the Sea to Sky High­way gets you to Whistler, a breath­tak­ing moun­tain vil­lage 670 m (2.2 mi) above sea level. This 2010 Olympic Win­ter Games venue is in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised as a top snow­board­ing and ski­ing des­ti­na­tion, but fine din­ing, lively nightlife and once-in-a-life­time ac­tiv­i­ties await the ad­ven­tur­ous all year long. Ride horses, moun­tain bikes or ATVs, bungee jump over glacier-fed rivers, or sky­dive into Pem­ber­ton Val­ley. Look­ing for some­thing more re­lax­ing? Un­pack a lake­side pic­nic, ex­plore lo­cal art gal­leries, de­signer golf cour­ses and the Squamish Lil’wat Cul­tural Cen­tre, then soak up the seren­ity at Scan­di­nave Spa. With ac­tiv­i­ties for all ages and abil­i­ties, there’s room for ev­ery­one at the top.
