About Vancouver

Vancouver is Canada's third largest city. Superbly situated along Burrard Inlet, the city offers many recreational and cultural activities. Ski facilities are available within minutes from the city on the local north shore mountains, and within a two hour drive at the world class Blackcomb and Whistler ski areas.

Recreational boating and fishing occur year round in the surrounding waters, and the climate is mild enough that most outdoor recreational activities can be enjoyed throughout the year. Stanley Park is situated in the heart of the city and offers 404 hectares of natural forests and trails, as well as a zoo and aquarium, and the larger Pacific Spirit Regional Park, adjacent to the UBC campus, is densely forested with many hiking and equestrian trails.

Also, part of the city is the second largest Chinatown in North America, and a large public market. The city enjoys a major symphony orchestra, an operatic society and numerous professional and amateur theatre groups.

About Whistler Blackcomb Mountains

Whistler Blackcomb Mountains are located 1.5 hours by car north of Vancouver.  Whistler is a world-class ski area, and 2010 Winter Olympics short-listed site.  It is a major winter and summer holiday destination.

Summer Activities
From crisp mountain air to crystal clear lakes and lush emerald forests, Whistler is a natural year-round playground. Blending harmoniously with the environment, Whistler serves up an attractive mix of cosmopolitan amenities and pristine beauty. Explore, experience, relax.

Winter Activities
From slope side accommodations nestled at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb, guests can walk to the express lifts of North America's two tallest ski mountains, cross-country on forest trails, ride a snowmobile to a frozen mountain lake, and discover treasures at more than 150 shops and boutiques.
