Lonely Planet names Whistler top Canadian adventure

Blog by Nick Swinburne | January 25th, 2011

The Lonely Planet recently released its list of top-10 Canadian adventures and Whistler is No. 1, according to a press release issued by Tourism Whistler.

Here’s what one of the world’s most reputable travel guide publishers had to say about the winter experience in Whistler: “One of North America's best ski resorts, perhaps best in the world, Whistler Blackcomb — the principal venue for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games — contains nearly 200 longer-than-average marked trails and the highest vertical drop … of any ski field on the continent.

“Wander round the back of Blackcomb to Ruby Bowl and it gets even better. It has Whistler Blackcomb's best powder, falling in continuous steeps for more than 600 metres.”
