If you’ve never skied Whistler, have you ever really skied? This world renowned ski resort and picturesque mountain town should be a bucket list item for everyone. Plus, Whistler is about so much more than perfect pow (although, obviously, it has that!). Set against a picture-perfect backdrop – it really is quite breathtaking – the resort offers it all. World-class skiing, watersports, hiking, luxury spas, boutique shopping, nightlife, fine dining, and some of the original craft beer crews. We reckon it won’t be long before the dictionary term ‘winter wonderland’ simply lists one word in the description: Whistler.

Homeowners can experience all Whistler has to offer without the headache of managing their own vacation rental, thanks to Lifty Life’s full-service solution.
