Video: Whistler, B.C. Why Whistler Stands WAY Above The Rest!
Looking for a getaway mountain adventure? Look no further! Whistler, British Columbia has it all: glacier hiking, helicopter tours, gondolas, mountain biking, amazing gold courses and even a vodka ice room.
Legendary Whistler Blackcomb is widely regarded as one of the top four-season resorts in North America.
The resort appears in dozens of “Best of” lists from around the globe, winning for its incomparable skiing and snow boarding, as well as for its fantastic hotels, amazing restaurants and top-notch golf courses. Whistler became even more world-renowned as the site of the alpine and Nordic venues for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
In this video, two indie BC filmmakers (Sean Horlor & Steve Adams) travel from Vancouver to Whistler through the Sea to Sky Corridor by train. In Whistler, they hike a glacier, fly by helicopter to Ipsoot Glacier, and sample a Canadian dining experience built entirely around Whistler’s mountain culture.
Some of the businesses and tour operators featured in this Destination BC video include: Blackcomb Aviation, Whistler Alpine Guides, Rocky Mountaineer, Bearfoot Bistro, Chateau Fairmont Whistler, and Pacific Coast Lines.
