There’s just something about Whistler…

The Team January 9th, 2012

As I sit at my desk early on Friday morning, I look out the window to a beautiful blanket of white.  I remember why I moved here 18 years ago. Fresh out of university on the West Coast of British Columbia, I moved to Whistler for a year, just enough time to save some money to travel to Australia. Eighteen years later, I’m Married with 2 kids, a dog and a mortgage.  My window view is much the same. There is something truly magical about this place.  There’s just something about Whistler…

This season has been without a doubt the most amazing on record. The snow fell early this year, which made for some great local skiing and undoubtably the best opening on record. The stars were aligned- great snow, great rates, and the largest amount of skiable terrain in North America.  Whistler’s current snow base is over 215cm, close to 84 inches and the snow continues to fall.

So why am I blogging about my Whistler story you may ask? Because there is something to it. This is one destination that will truly change your life forever…It is the vacation that your family will remember for years to come. Whistler has something for everyone from skiing and snowboarding, to snowshoeing, ziplines and sleigh rides. For those outdoor enthusiasts, try the Whistler Olympic Park in the spectacular Callaghan Valley for some amazing cross country skiing and biathlon lessons. And for those thrill seekers, how about brushing off that leotard you’ve kept in your closet all these years, pop on a helmet and fly down the Whistler sliding center track at 92 km an hour? Come on, you know you want to…

For those with kids, this is Canada’s Winter Playground.  Endless family activities.  My Daughter Georgia turned 3 this year and started the Blackcomb ski school Valley Kids program. I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the Whistler Blackomb Ski School. The staff, the instructors, unbelievable. I knew she would be the life of the party at Blackcomb base but I never expected her to cry at the end of the day because she didn’t want to go home. It’s by far, the best money a parent could ever spend.

For those looking to experience Whistler in style, try the Four Seasons Resort Whistler on for size. I am proud and humbled to say I work for Canada’s only Five Diamond Resort , nestled at the base of Blackcomb Mountain. Not only is the hotel absolutely stunning, but it’s the intuitive care that the staff provide to our guests. When we welcome you to Whistler, we invite you into our family. Over the festive week, I had the opportunity to speak with many guests from all parts of the world, at the ski concierge, in the restaurant, and in the lobby. Guests are always astonished by the level of attentiveness and the lasting relationships they make at the resort.

Taking a sip of my Blenz coffee, I can’t be sure what life path my family will take from here, maybe another 18 years in resort, but one thing is for certain. I know that my heart will forever belong to this spectacular mountain Destination. There’s just something about Whistler…
