Whistler Winter Fun
The Pinnacle Hotel in Whistler is the best place to stay while enjoying outdoor sports or attending one of the many events that happen during the snowy season in Whistler.
Just because we're in a mountain valley, not all the skiing is downhill. Whistler has great cross-country skiing in the Callaghan Valley and on the Lost Lake Trails
You can also go snowshoeing in the woods, or get a taste of historic adventure behind a dog sled. If motorized exploration is more your style, take a snow cat tour on the mountain, or explore the excellent local trails by snowmobile.
Love Food? Love Wine? Then you will love our gathering of enthusiasts in early November. "Cornucopia" is a food and wine festival with engaging seminars and up-close events with the world best vinters, sommeliers and wine professionals. Extravagant parties and incredible tasting adventures make this a "must" for connoisseurs and beginners who wish to learn more about wine and food.
Whistler Film Festival
Early December brings the action-packed Whistler Film Festival, which celebrates mountain life and introduces some of the best Canadian and International films. Outdoor screens, a celebrity ski race, and stylish parties make this an excellent occasion to mingle and play Spot the Movie Star. It's also a great opportunity to get in some early-season skiing before the crowds arrive.
Without a doubt Canada's biggest and best gay ski week is held every February in Whistler. Organizers from GayWhistler create an exciting event-packed week, and people keep coming back year after year to experience the fun and some of the best ski conditions on the continent.
Telus World Ski and Snowboard Festival
Every April, the best skiers and snowboarders entertain huge crowds in Whistler. Great live music and artists combine to make this a perfect finale for the end of the snow season.
