Whistler village, British Columbia, Canada
Often hailed the largest ski resort in North America, Whistler Blackcomb is also one of the busiest, welcoming over two million visitors to this area of British Colombia, Canada, each year. The twin mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb are ideal locations for skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking and hiking, which are the top reasons people from around the world visit Whistler.
And while Whistler Blackcomb is one of North America’s largest ski resorts, it’s not the only attraction - tourists also come in large numbers to visit Whistler village, the charming town at the base of the mountains. In winter, the pedestrian-only village transforms into a winter wonderland with twinkling lights, snowcapped cabins and outdoor markets – like in today’s image. But no matter the time of year, there is plenty to do in Whistler village. The town is filled with art museums, shopping boutiques and over a hundred restaurants.
