Overall Guide : Whistler is located in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia; this spectacular town is popularly known as the best Resort Town in North America. The town has two beautiful ice covered mountains with Glaciated peaks which make it the Ideal... more place for Skiing and Snowboarding, Hiking and one of the best destinations for Mountain Biking. The town is blessed with the scenic beauty; the view from the top of the Mountains is incredible. To enjoy this lovely view I would suggest you to try Peak 2 Peak Gondola, which is a beautiful sky lift that takes you all over the town and you can see the beautiful landmarks from the top. For Adventure lovers there is a place called as Whistler Bungee, I bet you will enjoy the Bungee Jumping here. Whistler Mountain Bike Park is a good place for Mountain biking and biking trails. There is just so much about the town that you just cannot forget. It’s worth the trip.
