There's no better place than Whistler, British Columbia to enjoy the holiday season. With the majestic Whistler Village full of lights, pathways covered in snow, and plenty of holiday events and activities to explore, it's a true winter wonderland sure to please your entire family.

Choose from skiing or snowboarding every day (even Christmas Day and New Year's Day), attending one of the many special events (many of which are free), eating at one of the many restaurants, or maybe you would prefer to stay in the comfort of your own suite. The options to choose from are endless. The holiday season attracts visitors, far and wide, to Whistler with its magnetic appeal. Get caught up in the winter scenery or participate in one of the many activities that are fun for the whole family such as tubing, ice skating, snowmobiling or Vallea Lumina.
