Whistler Peaks Ski Safari
Experience Canada’s two biggest ski areas, combining the huge terrain of Sun Peaks with the world’s best skiing in Whistler.
Experiencing both of Canada’s biggest resorts feels fantastic, while the easy transfer between them showcases the natural beauty of British Colombia (BC), with its vast landscapes, thick forests and blue lakes.
Canada’s largest resort, Whistler’s all-ability skiing is spread across two mountains. This is where Ski Safari first started out and we firmly believe it’s the world’s best all-round ski resort. The heli-skiing is phenomenal here, while the town has Canada’s best après bars. There’s also a huge range of non-ski activities, including bobsleighing in the Olympic park.
East of Whistler, Sun Peaks has the country’s second largest ski area. The skiing spans three mountains and, down in the Tyrolean-style village, the huge range of après activities includes romantic dining and Cat-Trax groomer rides.
Thanks to the well-oiled transfer system, there’s no need to self-drive between the two resorts, so this is an easy ski safari for families or non-drivers. And with regular UK flights to Kamloops (one stop) and Vancouver (direct), you can visit the resorts in either order.
This sample itinerary is our suggestion of how you could divide your time between the two resorts.
All our ski safaris are completely customisable, and you can adjust the itinerary to suit your preferences - whether that means altering the balance of time in Whistler or Sun Peaks, or following our route in reverse.
Fly to Kamloops, from where it's a 40 minute transfer to Sun Peaks (if you are self-catering you may want to consider booking a private transfer with a grocery stop on arrival). Check into your accommodation in Sun Peaks.
Days 2 to 5
Ski Sun Peaks for 4 days. Whilst in Sun Peaks why not book on to the Alpine Fondue & Starlight Descent - a fabulous meal followed by a 5 mile groomed run to the Village by moonlight and head torch.
On day 6 you will transfer to Whistler - this could be a road transfer or a flight to Vancouver and transfer. Check into your Whistler accommodation.
Days 7 to 10
Ski for 4 days in Whistler. There are so many different on and off-mountain activities to do in Whistler - from Zip Trek to a day’s ski touring with Extremely Canadian - something for everyone. Eating out in Whistler you are spoilt for choice, sushi to burgers and everything in between!
Checkout of your hotel and transfer to Vancouver for your flight home.
