The Whistler area is known to offer ample outdoor fun during both summer and winter months. I love going to Whistler because it’s less than a two-hour drive from Vancouver, yet it feels like a getaway, and is close enough for a quick weekend mini vacay. Whether you’re staying at a hotel or camping in the woods, the nature and stunning views in the surrounding area are simply breathtaking. Situated in the alpine forests, overlooking the coast mountains of the Squamish area it is the perfect home base for the outdoorsy souls.
