Gay Travel Whistler
Whistler is best known for being the mountain host of the 2010 Winter Olympics, and it has built quite the resort destination irrespective of season. During the winter, Whistler and Blackcomb mountains combine to create the largest skiable area in all of North America. During the summer, mountain bikers careen down corners while couples hike through meadows of wildflowers and cannonball into mountain lakes. For the outdoorsy gay, Whistler is a dream destination.
The WhistlerBlackcomb experience includes more than just skiing. Get out and explore Cavanaugh Valley on snowmobile or snowshoe. Go ziplining over Fitzsimmons Creek, where it’s like zipping through a snow globe. Take a spa day at the luscious Scandinave Spa, or have an Olympic moment at Whistler Olympic Park. The resort has done a fantastic job at diversifying, and making Whistler a world-class, year-round destination.
Whistler Village has also expanded to accommodate the growing interest from international visitors, with top-notch restaurants appearing alongside more casual après-ski venues. The Village is cute and compact, offering everything a traveler needs within a five minute walk: liquor store, grocery store, restaurants, bars, boutique shops and hotels are all spread out through the Lower and Upper Villages.
Weather is appropriately seasonal, with heavy snowfall regularly gracing the slopes in the winter and sun showers blanketing the very same slopes in the summer. Consider yourself blessed if you are able to visit often, because the Village reinvents itself for each season!
