Probably the most famous of Canada’s mountain resorts is beautiful Whistler, which played host to the 2010 Winter Olympics. Outdoor enthusiasts flock here from around the world to enjoy the many activities on offer. This truly is a year-round resort with skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling popular in the winter, and hiking, mountain climbing and zip-lining drawing visitors in the summer. A ride on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, which links Whistler to Blackcomb and offers 360-degree views of the breathtaking scenery, is a must.
