Holiday Options had the wonderful opportunity to take a few clients to Whistler from July 27th – 30th this year of 2009. Accomodations were at the “Legends Hotels” in Creekside, just minutes away from the exciting Whistler Village. The hotel contains an accessible media room, games room,, an outdoor swimming pool (with two hot tubs), and fitness room. Creekside itself is a great place to explore, with shops, stores and many surrounding lakes. When not investigating the attractions at Creekside, clients enjoy a gorgeous drive through the mountains, up to Whistler Village, one of the biggest tourist attractions of BC. The highlight this year was the breathtaking, world record-breaking “Peak2Peak” gondola experience, spanning the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains (longest unsupported span of 2.024 kilometres!). The Whistler trip 2009 was a great excursion for clients and staff – a highly recommended one.

  1. Thanks for showcasing our beloved village. The Peak2Peak is certainly a great thrill and an absolutely fantastic new attraction for us all. Summer or winter doesn’t matter – there’s always something breathtaking to admire here.
