Ahhh, the snow-capped mountains of Whistler. Some will say there's no better place in the world to spend a snow-filled vacation. This oasis of ice and snow is home to only 10,000 permanent residents, but these hard-working Canucks facilitate millions of visitors every year. This skiing mecca is home to the Horstman Glacier, or the reason why skiing in whistler is an almost year-round sport. Until late July, weather reaching into the 70's greats the vacationer with a slope to ski and a sun to tan.
Aside from the year-round entertainment, lodgings in Whistler are top notch. Secluded town-homes, luxury hotels and convenient condominiums dot the mountainside. Multiple championship golf-courses and a vibrant city night life help keep all types of visitors grinning from ear to ear.
Whistler is a powerhouse of a vacation destination. Families, romantics and skiing enthusiasts flock to this beautiful city in British Columbia not because it is 2nd best, but because it is the best. [Expedia]
