British Columbia hosted the 2010 Winter Olympic, and many of the major sporting events were held around the beautiful alpine Village of Whistler. Voted the Best North American Ski destination several years in a row, it is great fun in the summer as well.
The adventure starts with a pick-up at your hotel and a drive across the famous Lions Gate bridge and onto the Sea to Sky Highway. Truly in this case getting there, is half the fun. Hugging the side of the coast mountains, over looking the Howe Sound the drive is worth the trip all by it's self. Stopping at Shannon Falls and Brandywine Falls you will arrive at Whistler in time for a leisurely lunch. Optional stops include:
British Columbia Mining Museum - Where you can get a underground tour in a real copper and gold mine.
West Coast Railway Heritage Park - For a look at engines, cars, and rolling stock from our railway heritage. Including the famous Royal Hudson Steam Locomotive.
Eagle watching View Point - Where hundreds of Bald Eagles come to roost. (Season Permitting)
In the afternoon enjoy some free time to explore Whistler village or visit the top of the ski area via the high speed gondola (extra fee for gondola). Thrill to the Peak to Peak Gondola between the summits of Whistler and Blackchomb Mountains. The worlds longest Unsupported Span at 3.024km/1.88 miles (straight line between the two towers that are furthest apart). Highest Point above the ground is 436m/1427 feet over Fitzsimmons Creek. Not to be missed.
When you are ready, we will take a leisurely return drive into the sunset arriving back in Vancouver in the early evening.
