North America’s biggest ski area and host to the 2010 Winter Olympics, Ski Safari started out here in 1996 and we’ve been organising ski holidays in Whistler ever since.

More than 8,000-acres and 200 ski runs span the two mountains of Whistler and Blackcomb - linked by the world’s longest free-span lift, you can experience them both in the same day. And if you’re into the backcountry, expect steep chutes, alpine-style bowls and legendary heli-skiing terrain.

Forested slopes lead to the traffic-free resort centres of Upper Village, Creekside and the main hub of Whistler Village. Here, the atmosphere is vibrant yet down-to-earth, with more than 90 restaurants, over 200 shops and some of the best après bars in North America - GLC and Longhorn Bar & Saloon are among our staff favourites.

Beyond the bars and boutiques, there’s so much going on, from the weekly Fire & Ice show and the forest zipwire, to the bobsleigh track at the 2010 Olympic park.

Two-hours’ drive from Vancouver via the Sea-to-Sky Highway, even the transfer journey is breath-taking, and spending a day in Canada’s ‘most liveable city’ is our favourite way to round-off a Whistler trip.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

Call 01273 224060 for advice from our ski specialists.

Excellent. Lots to do.

Brilliant ski in/out resort tailored to meet the needs of all skiers. Loads of choice for food and drink with options for everyone's budget. This is our third visit to Whistler and it certainly didn't disappoint.

A large village at the bottom of Whistler mountain and a short stroll from the base of Blackcomb. Spoilt for choice with restaurants and bars. Wide array decent shops.
