Whistler, British Columbia
Mountains:    Whistler / Blackcomb

Located in British Columbia’s spectacular Coast Mountains, Whistler is one of North America’s premier four season resorts, internationally renowned as the site of the alpine and Nordic venues for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Its epic skiing and snowboarding, vibrant alpine village and majestic mountains haven’t just captured the attention of visitors— Whistler real estate has also attracted buyers and real estate investors from across British Columbia.


Every year, people from all corners of the world come to Whistler to ski its unparalleled slopes, golf its championship fairways, and explore its natural landscapes. And every year, Whistler tops international mountain resort rankings and awards, including recent accolades as the “Best Ski Resort in North America” (FREESKIER 2011, third consecutive year), “Top Ranked Resort” (SKI Magazine 2011) and “Best Place to Ski & Stay in North America” (2010 Condé Nast Traveler’s annual readers’ poll, fourth consecutive year).


While many consider Whistler Village the heart of their Whistler experience residents and real estate insiders know that more than two dozen neighbourhoods offer real estate worthy of Whistler’s status as a first-rate, international destination.
