When it comes to winter vacation destinations it doesn’t get much better than Whistler. We invite the Royal Holiday’s Westin Resort to introduce the region and what it offers travellers…
Few places on earth offer the natural beauty, cozy atmosphere, and invigorating action of Whistler, Canada. Located just north of Vancouver in Canada’s breathtaking Coast Mountains, Whistler has been drawing vacationers and families to its scenic views for years on end. Whether you’re looking for an action-packed vacation full of skiing, snowboarding, and sightseeing, or going for a more low-key, relaxed experience, Royal Holiday and their vacation club will be able to show you the best Whistler has to offer. If you’re a lover of crisp, clear skies, snowy peaks, and an active vacation that’s filled with adventure, Whistler is the holiday destination of your dreams. Here are just a few reasons why you should head to Whistler this holiday season.
You’ll need to pack a parka if you want to tame the slopes. Many visitors to Whistler come for the incredible skiing and winter activities. For the holidays, there’s nothing like spending the snowy days skiing, snowmobiling, or ziplining through the peaks to get a hands-on experience of the beauty of the Coast Mountains. From your room at Royal Holiday’s Westin Resort and Spa at Whistler, you’ll be able to get a clear view of the cliffs and snow-drenched peaks surrounding you from dawn to dusk.
If winter sports aren’t your thing, you’ll still feel at home in Whistler. In Danish cultures, the word ‘hygge,’ or ‘cozy,’ describes a way of being luxuriously sheltered from winter weather. At the Westin Resort, you’ll be able to stay sheltered from the cold while remaining surrounded by the beauty of the snow-capped mountains. You’ll be able to pamper yourself at the world-class spa, dine in, or enjoy a hot chocolate in the lounge while cuddling up with a good book. When it comes to cozy getaways, Whistler is the perfect location for a stress-free holiday.
