THOMAS TRIP TO WHISTLER, CANADA.
5 NIGHTS/1 STOP
One of the largest ski area in North America .
“I’m skiing in Europe since I’m 3 years old and was looking for a ski area as large as those found in Europe. Whistler has an amazing ski terrain with a vertical drop of 5278 feet or 1600 m. When the snow conditions are good you can ski from the summit (7493 feet-2283 m) to (2214 feet -674 m). They have 22% of advanced run and 5% of expert run. They also have the longest continuous lift system in the world that will take you from one mountain to another. You are never bored and will discover new slopes every day. Our budget for the whole trip was around $ 1650 per person for 5 nights (excluded food and activities).”

GOOD TO KNOW
We stayed in Whistler Village at walking distance to the gondolas. Those will take you up to either the Whistler mountain or to the Blackcomb mountain. However there are other choices. Check here to check Whistler lodging map.
We rented a car to drive from Vancouver to Whistler. The road trip is beautiful with amazing views of British Columbia. The bus is another option but it is less flexible.
Check out early winter deals on the Whistler-Blackcomb internet site.
The Whistler mountain seems to be easier for less experienced skiers or kids.
The base altitude in Whistler is very low (2412 feet-673 m) and therefore it can rain at the base level when it is too warm. The best time to travel to Whistler would be from December to early February.
We love On the Snow for powder alerts, ski resorts comparison and general info of ski resorts in the world.
