Save the world with a ski holiday in Whistler

Date Posted: 8th Mar 2007

Ski holidays in Whistler have been recognised as one of the most environmentally friendly places to enjoy a sporting break.

At the BC Tourism Awards on February 22nd, Whistler was particularly congratulated for its $9.2 million (?4.8 million) Symphony Express chairlift, which ascends 1,670 vertical ft to the stunning alpine peak of Piccolo.

By deploying a highly advanced team of engineers and planners, Whistler managed to reduce an estimated environmental footprint of 40 per cent down to five per cent - good news for conscientious people on ski holidays in Whistler .

Arthur DeJong, Whistler Blackcomb's mountain planning and environmental resource Manager, said: "A number of areas with high ecological values have been set aside for conservation within the ski area and include wetlands, black bear habitat zones noted for denning and food supply and coastal mountain black-tailed deer ranges."

Ski holidays in Whistler are a nature lover's dream. The resort, which is home to the two dramatic ski mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb, boasts 200 trails, over 17 alpine bowls and four glaciers - a stunning landscape well worth preserving.

The resort recently surpassed its annual snowfall average, reaching a total of 1,026 cm by 20th February.
