THINGS TO DO HERE

So much to see and do, I was completely blown away by the scale and ability of whistler resort to maintain a level balance between tourism, nature and the local people and customs without selling itself to just another winter resort.
There are plenty of shops and places to eat and you can enjoy a great days shopping if you don't fancy the sports, but, rest assured that the locals are a great bunch of people and the benefits of interacting with the local people is a great benefit.
