Flights And Sights
Flying To Whistler With American Airlines
American Airlines flights to Whistler let you fully explore the beautiful Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Canada. With a great number of things to do in Whistler, it's considered one of the top mountain resorts in North America. There's skiing and snowboarding in the winter, of course, but there's also rafting, hiking and more in the warmer months. And the spas can be enjoyed year-round!
Things to Do in Whistler
With two absolutely majestic mountains, the most famous activities in Whistler have to be skiing and snowboarding. Whistler Blackcomb offers over 8,000 acres of slopes along with 16 alpine bowls and even three glaciers! It's got all the best of a traditional big mountain experience plus features such as half-pipes to help you learn new tricks. Choose from more than 200 marked trails, with plenty of options for all levels of experience. The best part of any run you choose, however, is almost sure to be the gorgeous views. The more adventurous might even opt to try heli-skiing or snowboarding (talk about the ultimate ski lift!). If sightseeing is more your speed, we recommend a gondola ride -- specifically the Peak 2 Peak Gondola that connects Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. There are even gondolas with glass bottoms that afford a truly unique viewpoint! Want to go even more relaxed while you view the scenery? Try the Snowcat Tour With Candlelit Fondue Dinner, which takes you up Blackcomb in a luxurious, fully heated snowcat and then rewards you at the top with a romantic dinner.
If you're visiting during the summer, don't worry that you'll run out of things to do in Whistler! Once the powder melts, you'll be able to truly appreciate the splendor of the mountainside. Go hiking, biking or four-wheeling. There's even a Zipline Adventure in Whistler that lets you see the breathtaking scenery from the treetops! And this is the perfect place for whitewater rafting. The rivers here run quite fast when the snow melts, so hang on to your paddle in the Class III and IV rapids. If you want to do more rubbernecking than paddling, though, there are some Class I and II rapids that you'll love.
And if you're in search of activities in Whistler to pamper yourself, you're in luck! There is a plethora of spas and wellness centers ready and waiting to massage your sore muscles after a day on the slopes or just help you relax during a well-deserved vacation. Best of all, they're something you can enjoy no matter what time of year you visit!
