Home to Whistler Blackcomb, one of the largest ski resorts in North America, you’ll find this town nestled to the north of Vancouver. Of course, there’s excellent skiing and snowboarding on offer, but did you know about tobogganing, snowshoeing and even ski jumping at the 2010 Olympic Park? To continue the alpine theme with your accommodation, we’ve sought out the best lodges and cabins Whistler has to offer – book them on Culture Trip.
