Our family of four spent a week and half in the Whistler area and it truly was one of our best vacations ever. We purchased the two-day pass for Whistler Blackcomb through the tourism office and combined the Gondola ride and several hikes along the main trails with lunch one day, and Mountain Top BBQ dinner the next. It was pricey, but definitely worth it as this seemed to capture highlights of the area. Nice, well marked trails with maps and a key to wildflowers on the mountain were provided, and it was less crowded that I would have expected. The views are incredible in every direction, and there is plenty to check out in the main area or could easily make a full day of it by hiking further out. Good options for purchasing food and drinks are available and there is a nice souvenir shop as well.
