Named after the furry marmots that populate the surrounding mountains and whistle like deflating balloons, this pretty alpine village is one of the world's most popular ski resorts. Its surrounding mountains offer almost every imaginable outdoor activity, from hiking to mountain biking and rafting.
Whistler is now one of the most popular outdoor-sports destinations in the world. Combined, the two mountains have over 200 runs and 33 lifts and cater to a myriad winter and summer sports. The area has a resident population of almost 10,000, and attracts around 2 million visitors per year. And, in 2003, the original vision for the ski complex was realized - in association with Vancouver, Whistler won the bid to host the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
