Whistler is centered around the Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, and connected by the world-record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, which gives visitors access to the area’s renowned alpine terrain. In winter, visitors can ski, snowboard, snowshoe and go tubing on more than 200 marked runs. In spring, summer and fall, adventure seekers can go white-water rafting, hiking, rock climbing and mountain biking. Whistler is located on the unceded territory of the Squamish and Lil’wat Nations, and steeped in indigenous history and culture. Explore the wild mountains of Canada and stay in one of these great vacation rentals – all bookable on Culture Trip.

With its faux-fur throws and pillows, fireplace and three-seater bar, the Queen Boho Studio at Alpenglow Lodge is so charming that couples will certainly want to add it to their list of weekend getaways. Warm-looking wood detailing stands out against the slate-gray of the fireplace, adding to the sleek modern look. This smoke-free hotel – which features an outdoor pool, spa tub and sauna – is just steps away from the slopes, shopping and Whistler’s high-energy nightlife.

2. Legends Whistler, for the love of skiing

Snow lovers will appreciate the ski-in/ski-out access from their own condo at Legends, located in Whistler Creekside. Legends guests are less than a minute’s walk away from the Creekside Gondola and all the winter sports they could desire, while in summer, the lodge provides direct access to the alpine hiking and mountain-biking trails. Legends rents out one-, two- and three-bedroom suites overlooking the famous “Dave Murray” ski run, where the 2010 Winter Olympics Alpine events took place.

3. The Aspens by Whiski Jack, for central convenience

The Aspens are just steps away from the outdoor playground that is Whistler/Blackcomb. Featuring one-and-two-bedroom condos in the Upper Village, the Aspens is located near the base of Blackcomb Mountain and close to shops, restaurants and the apres-ski scene Whistler Village is so popular for. A year-round heated outdoor pool, hot tub and exercise room are also great options for unwinding after a day on the mountain. Each of the 11 rooms includes a fireplace and balcony, and ski and bike storage is also available.

The modern, chic lodge offers one-and-two-bedroom suites, as well as a three-bedroom suite, to choose from, and a media room offers movies twice a day. You haven’t experienced evenings in Whistler until you’ve enjoyed a glass of wine in Evolution’s outdoor heated pool – or one of its two hot tubs – while watching snowflakes float down around you.
