Whistler, north of Vancouver, has some of the best skiing in North America and all sorts of outdoors activities to get stuck into, so make the most of it by booking in at one the town’s best Airbnbs.
World-renowned for its legendary ski slopes, Whistler is a much-loved winter holiday spot that has attracted adrenaline junkies for decades. Slopes aside, there is loads to do around town – whether it’s enjoying its luxury Scandinavian-inspired spa, Scandinave Spa Whistler, or tucking into farm-to-table dining at Araxi, which has been recognized as the town’s best restaurant for over a decade.
Horstman Lane is the ultimate alpine chalet. This sprawling five-bedroom property is all about wooden elements and stony exteriors. An outdoor hot tub sits under the pine trees and makes for a dreamy evening spot, while the numerous indoor wood-burning fireplaces keep the home toasty no matter the temperature. Kids will love the in-house cinema, which will help keep them entertained on blizzardy days.
Ski in, ski out, anyone? From this spacious condo, which is right on the slopes and sleeps four guests over one bedroom and a sofa bed, you’ll be able to beat the crowds and get first access to the fresh powder. It’s a penthouse property with floor-to-ceiling windows, so expect oodles of light and uninterrupted views of the snow-capped trees.
This Airbnb takes outdoor bathing one step further with a hot tub on a covered deck; located just off the bedroom with a big television, you’ll be able to watch your favorite shows from the tub – that is, if you’re done with mountain views. Inside, things are compact but perfectly sized for two, with a second balcony off the living area designed for enjoying morning coffees.
You might momentarily forget you’re in the mountains in this light and airy Airbnb – but the view over the snow-capped hills will quickly remind you of your locale. This one-bedroom property isn’t like your typical alpine condo: instead it opts for a modern feel, with an all-white-everything theme and Scandinavian touches such as shearling throws and blonde-wood furnishings.

All log cabin walls and wooden furniture, Totem Chalet is well suited to its mountainous surroundings. Built around an enormous totem pole, this three-bedroom chalet, which sleeps six, has a treehouse-like feel. When not skiing, those looking to keep up their fitness routines can do so in the chalet’s sizeable gym before soaking in the outdoor hot tub.
This one-bedroom Airbnb ticks all the trendy decor boxes: an Eames chair in the lounge, a record player and even a decorative typewriter. Taking an industrial approach to alpine decor, freshly cut logs, which you can use for the wood-burning fire, are contrasted with a pipe shelving unit, while wire light fittings sit above framed posters of bears. You’ll have your own private outdoor space with a grill, and the building also comes with a communal swimming pool and spa.
This airy boho-chic studio apartment wouldn’t look out of place in Australia’s Byron Bay. Nautical colors are rife throughout, and an enormous wooden piece of art above the bed gives off serious driftwood vibes – although the views of pine trees and the crackling of the wood burning fire are quintessentially Whistler. The private balcony, which looks directly over the pine trees, makes this a great option if you’re visiting in the warmer months.
This two-bedroom apartment is ideal for larger groups. Sleeping seven guests over two bedrooms and a sofa bed, this wallet-friendly option lets you save your coins for après-ski. The complex comes with a saltwater pool that remains heated year-round, alongside a number of hot tubs and a spacious fitness center. Indoors there’s a fireplace to keep things snug and a country-style kitchen for whipping up a post-slopes snack.
