The results are in, and SKI Magazine’s annual readers’ poll has revealed that British Columbia, Canada’s winter jewel, Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort, ranks as the #1 overall ski resort in all of North America!
Whistler has been a long-standing favorite among our incentive groups for a premiere travel experience, in any season of the year. In the SKI Magazine poll, the area received high rankings for amenities such as Lodging, Lifts and Dining, Apres-Ski and Off-Hill Activities. As these rankings show, incentive travelers need not be skiiers or snow boarders to enjoy a memorable holiday at Whistler.
Situated just 110 kilometers north of the city of Vancouver, the resort spans the adjoining peaks of Whistler and Blackcomb, part of British Columbia’s Coast Range. This unspoiled alpine wilderness provides a virtual playground for any nature lover, with over 8,000 acres of the highest caliber mountain ski terrain encompassing 12 alpine bowls, 3 glaciers and more than 200 marked trails.
Popular incentive group activities also include exploring the breathtaking scenery by snowmobile or ATV. And imagine a one-of-a-kind dining experience, accessed by alpine gondola or helicopter! When playing host to the world for the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Whistler Blackcomb area was developed into a world-class destination, boasting luxury accommodations, fine dining establishments, outfitters offering an array of outdoor adventures, and of course a vibrant night life scene.
Even though they’re already on top, the Whistler Blackcomb area stays one step ahead by continually upgrading and improving its attractions and amenities. Upcoming improvements including spacious new Whistler Village gondola cabins, a new radio-frequency identification system to reduce wait times at the lifts, and an increase in the snow-grooming fleet are sure to keep Whistler Blackcomb seated as a solid first pick for top-notch incentive destinations.
