Anytime of year is beautiful in Whistler B.C but Christmas is special

Located in the spectacular Coast Mountains of

British Columbia, and just two hours north of

Vancouver, Whistler is Canada’s premier,

year-round destination.

Consistently ranked the number one mountain

resort in North America, Whistler features two

majestic mountains, epic skiing and snowboarding

conditions, four championship  golf courses, more

than 200 shops, 90 restaurants and bars,

accommodations galore, hiking trails, spas and

arguably the  best mountain bike park in the world.

In short, Whistler has everything you will ever

need to have the time of your life – and so much


It is worth the trip just for the shopping.

The Village of Whistler is a shoppers paradise,

pedestrian  friendly walkways and plazas lead you

through shops,  boutiques, art galleries and theatres.

You’ll find everything you need for while you’re

here and plenty of souvenirs to take home with you.

Well you can scratch this one off your bucket list.

It’s not a coincidence that the #1 ski

resort and the #1 zipline tour in North

America are located in the same place.

Whistler is a unique, pristine and thrilling

destination which is the perfect backdrop

for the originators of North America’s

zipline eco-tour.

Ziptrek Ecotours has thrilled hundreds  of

thousands of visitors year round and  in all


In five years of operation, Ziptrek has

evolved from a trend setting 5 cable  zipline

tour to offering multiple eco-activities

directly between Whistler and Blackcomb


The tour area now boasts 7 suspension

bridges, 2 rigid aerial bridges, 10 treetop

viewing platforms and a total of 10 ziplines

divided between 2 tours.

Experience the exhilaration of stepping

off a platform, sailing 2300’ through air,

dropping over 20 stories from start to

finish on one of the world’s longest tree

to tree ziplines, while reaching speeds

of up to 80 km/hr (up to 60mph)!

Well you can’t come to Whistler and worry about

money and It is only one night so let’s go first Class

Welcome to Four Seasons Resort Whistler.

mountain resorts, wrapped in Four Seasons comfort

Blackcomb, site of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games.

“Few hotel chains do five-diamond quite like Four Seasons.

Located at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, Four

Seasons Resort Whistler amply delivers on the brand’s

promise of ‘functional rooms and intuitive service’

– another way of saying everything you want is close

to hand and the things you’d only half-imagined are

there before you know it.” Men’s Health Australia, May 2008.
