Not just a ski resort
Already a world class ski town, this place was completely revamped to prepare for the Winter Games in 2010 but there's plenty of summer activities too. The ski runs become a world class mtn bikers haven, hiking trails, zip lines, horseback riding, and so much more. It's quite pricey but if can afford to take the gondola, there are more trails and dining at the summit. There's plenty do in the Village if you want to keep you feet planted. Definitely no shortage of hotels, restaurants, and shopping galore.
Last time we were there, Cranworx was going on. A 10 day bike fest; BC's version of the X Games. Totally awesome!http://www.whistler.com
