Top 5 Tuesday: Bike Trails with Guest Blogger Jeff Lenosky
Perched on the peaks on the magnificent Coast Mountains, Whistler is Canada’s favorite year-round destination. Consisting of two world-class mountains, and a bustling base village, Whistler is consistently ranked as one of the top ski destinations anywhere in the world. So it’s not surprising it was selected as the site of the alpine and Nordic skiing venues for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is truly a testament to modern engineering, as it connects Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, all while providing thrilling views through its glass bottom gondolas. However, it’s not just what’s on the slopes that put Whistler on top of so many “Best Of” lists. The renowned Whistler Village has also won numerous awards for design as well as SKI Magazine’s Top Resort for the best off-hill activities. The base village is perfectly suited for getting around by foot and is filled with top shelf shopping, numerous restaurants and bars, and accommodations that will meet any need. The area is home to four high altitude, award-winning courses designed by golf’s greats–Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Jr., Arnold Palmer, and Les Furber. Just because the snow stops falling in the summer, doesn’t mean the fun ends. Mountain bike trails cover every type of terrain and skill level. Groomed paths and rugged backcountry trails all lead to spectacular alpine views. Race through the rugged, old growth forests on Whistler’s Zipline courses. Adventure is always in season at Whistler.
