If the biggest and the best are high on your winter getaway “must-haves,” then a ski trip to Whistler Blackcomb, B.C. should top your list. The Whistler Blackcomb ski resort expands across 100-plus trails on 8,171 acres. The longest trail lasts for seven miles and descends more than 5,000 vertical feet.
The skiing is something unlike anything else you will experience in North America, and the icing on the cake is the off mountain vibe found in Whistler Village—especially during après. The beauty of après ski is that it loosely encapsulates a variety of activities and experiences, which typically range from cold beers, wings and billiards to champagne, fondue and high-end spa treatments. Each person can tailor it a bit to fit their own preferences, as long as you’re celebrating a good day on the slopes.
