Live from Whistler!

- August 16th, 2012

This weekend I’ll be blogging live from Whistler, B.C. on a press trip with Enjoy Whistler, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler and Tourism B.C.

I know Whistler is a dream destination for many Canadian travellers, especially ski and winter sports enthusiasts. The powder at Whistler-Blackcomb is among the best in the world and the mountains made a stunning backdrop for Olympic events that took place in the town during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games.

But what does Whistler offer for tourists who don’t ski and who visit during the summer months? This is what I’ll discover this weekend, as I tour the shops and restaurants of Whistler Village, see where local culinary gems are produced in nearby Pemberton and even squeeze in a bit of adventure on a jeep tour up Blackcomb Mountain for a salmon bake.

Check back for updates starting Friday night and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter.
