Whistler Named one of the TOP Ski Resorts in the World

S Magazine ( named the Top 113 Ski Resorts in the world including Whistler Blackcomb and Whistler Heli Skiing. The editors say, "... Two mountains connect by a Village, more than 200 trails, 33 Lifts and 12 Alpine bowls, the Numbers Speak for Themselves. " Indeed, the numbers are pretty impressive with over 8,131 acres of pure skiing bliss, 5,280 vertical feet, and over 30+ feet of annual snow fall and this year, La Nina is meant to bring another impressive snow base and if last year was any indication we will have an awesome season.

S-Magazine highlights the Peak 2 Peak with their 28 sky cabins travelling 4.4 KMs between Whistler & Blackcomb mountains giving the skier "access to both mountains' expansive and unique high-alpine terrain and spectacular views." Some of our favourite places on Whistler Blackcomb include breakfast waffles at the Crystal Hut on Blackcomb, Apres ski fun at the GLC (we like to call it the Gay Lesbian Club) at the base of Whistler mountain in Whistler village. One of our fav places to call home is the Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside. Their all-suite rooms with stunning views of the Whistler mountain base and chill'n in the salt water hot tubs that overlook Skiers' Plaza is the bomb! 4 Night, 3 Day Ski Package at the Pan starts at $181/person/night For the best ski deals of the season call 1.866.787.1966 or visit WinterPRIDE - the annual Gay & Lesbian Ski/snowboard week is Feb. 5-12, 2012 and will be celebrating 20 Years OUT on the Slopes of Whistler! Are you ready for an epic snow season?! Think Snow, Think WinterPRIDE!

REMINDER: Oct. 13-16 visit the Whistler Blackcomb booth at the Toronto Ski Show

* PRIDE ski package starting at $131/person/night for a 4 Night, 3 Day ski pass is based on double occupancy at the Aava Whistler Hotel.

Whistler really does deserve to be recognized as one of the top ski resorts. Aside from having one of the best locations for skiing, they also have one of the best facilities around.
