'Exciting outdoor pursuits' in Whistler

Date Posted: 24th Feb 2009

Ski holidays in Whistler offer a range of exciting outdoor activities such as mountain biking, golfing, canoeing and hiking, it has been claimed.

Writing in the Daily Mail, travel writer Carly Wilkie Steven recommends a 25-minute gondola ride up Whistler Mountain, named after a TV drama from the 1970s, as a good way to absorb the picturesque surroundings.

"The views from the peak were, predictably, outstanding and we were fortunate enough to have been blessed with glorious weather," she commented, adding: "The ride back down on the ski-lift was one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had."

Whistler Mountain is preparing to be the host mountain for the Winter Olympic Games in 2010 which is expected to attract more than 5,000 competitors from 80 different countries.

The resort, which is undergoing a multi-million dollar upgrade, is just two hours from Vancouver along the scenic Sea to Sky Highway.

Visitors are also advised to allow themselves extra travelling time during off-peak periods.
