“Great mountain biking for a newbie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We had a most awesome teacher and guide, Nick from Wales, who showed us the ropes and taught us the basics of downhill mountain biking. The mountain itself was unbelievably gorgeous, with low clouds just below the peaks, the peak to peak gondola was epic, and we even saw a black bear munching on the grass of one of the slopes. The mountain biking was exhilarating, even for beginners, and there was so much more for intermediate to advanced riders. Even if you're a girl, like most of us in our party, and complete beginners, go ahead and go for it! Epic!!

“A return visit 18 years later”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

On our first visit to Whistler in Nov 1995 we saw a small quaint ski village. Since then the Olympics have been staged there and the 'village' has grown a lot. Still a bit of quaintness though. This time we were there in June and saw mountain bikes instead of skis. It's a beautiful area. Wouldn't recommend unless the weather is good.

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Beautiful views whether you are going up or down. You need not be a skier to enjoy a visit. Make sure your camera has space for a lot of pictures.

“Whistler in the Summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

If travelling with hardy downhill bikers you don't have to sped the entire time in the bike park yourself. I did various activities, white water rafting & zip line both not for the faint hearted but, the thrill is just amazing and the safety is second to none. Book in the village they'll explain all. Also did some tame horse riding, the country is just so beautifull. We usually travel in the winter for skiing so it made a lovely change to do the summer vacation. We're an active family so the sun & beach for 2x weeks doesn't do it but, Whistler in the summer - amazing. Be sensible, check your travel insurance before you travel. Canada is a beautiful country with the most friendly of people. We have a timeshare so stayed at the Woodrun, gorgeous - Enjoy.

“Amazing snow and mountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The best snow of my life. If it is a powder day, be sure to get up really early and be there at least 30 minutes before the opening to enjoy the fresh tracks.
Park is awesome, custermer care is great and the moutains are tremendous. It's the best ski resort i've ever skied in my life.
