Just two hours north of Vancouver is Canada’s premier year-round adventure destination: Whistler. Whistler is known for world class snow sports on its two majestic mountains above a bustling village base. It’s also the former home of the 2010 Winter Olympics. There is lots to do at Whistler and in most cases you don’t need to know how to ski to enjoy all Whistler has to offer. Stay in a Whistler timeshare and explore the top 5 things to do in Whistler BC:

1. Take a Gondola: The best way to see Whistler, BC is to take a gondola between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. On the Peak 2 Peak Gondola you will be treated to 360-degree views of Whistler Village, the majestic mountains, and the powdery ski slopes below. And the best part is you don’t have to know how to ski to enjoy the roundtrip gondola experience. Insider tip: If you go in the summer get a lift one way to the top and mountain bike down!
