Where is Whistler?
Whistler resort is in British Columbia, Canada, in the Coast Mountain Range, 120 km north of Vancouver. The drive is about 2.5 hours along the scenic Sea to Sky highway. Whistler first opened for skiing in 1966, as a small ski hill with one gondola, one chairlift, and two t-bars. Since that time Whistler has developed into a mega resort, visited by more than two million tourists every year. The Whistler Museum tells the story of how a small, remote valley came to be one of the most famous tourist attractions in the world.
