Whistler Blackcomb, situated in British Columbia, is one of the largest ski resorts in North America. In 2010 the Olympic Park was one of the venues for ski jumping in the Winter Olympics. Whistler is a car free village with beautiful chalets, situated at the foot of the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Apart from ski jumping, you can also do skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and tobogganing. Different luxury travel accommodation choices are available to tourists going there for winter skiing holidays. Whistler is an ideal spot for families as well.
