‘Tis the season for a winter wonderland getaway filled with snowcapped mountains, crackling fires, and luxurious lodging. Enter the Whistler Extraordinary Experiences Contest and you’ll have a chance to enjoy all this and more in dazzling Whistler, British Columbia, Canada. Located two hours north of Vancouver in the Coast Mountains, Whistler is known for its charming villages lined with great retail shops, restaurants, and spas, all surrounded by Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, a skier and snowboarders dream.
Not a skier? Not a problem. Take a helicopter sightseeing tour, go ice skating, dogsledding, zip lining, snowmobiling, bungee jumping, or check out the mountain bike park—one of the best in the world. The list of things to see and do in Whistler is virtually endless; but first you have to get there. The winner of the Whistler Extraordinary Experiences Contest will receive up to $2,000 CAD for a flight from any major airport to Vancouver, BC. Once on the ground, a luxury SUV will whisk you away to Whistler, along the scenic shoreline with spectacular views of Howe Sound.
You’ll be dropped off at First Tracks Lodge for a five-night stay in a spacious one-bedroom suite complete with a large living area, fully-equipped kitchen, balcony, gas fireplace, and plush king bed. Named #1 Whistler hotel by TripAdvisor, the property is nestled at the base of Whistler Mountain in the Creekside Village and features amenities such as a full gym, hot tub area, cozy lobby with bluestone fireplace, and ski-in-ski-out access. This amazing prize also comes with several ways to experience the snow covered slopes. Brush up on your skills with a half-day ski lesson for two with a private instructor; use your two three-day Blackcomb lift tickets to explore the thousands of acres of ski and snowboarding trails, alpine bowls, and glaciers; or ride the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola linking Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains.
PEAK 2 PEAK has the longest unsupported lift span and highest lift of its kind in the world, affording riders 360-degree views of the breathtaking beauty below. The PEAK 2 PEAK Viewing Gallery, Samsung Alpine Theater, and dining options are all available once at the top. Keep the adventures going with a snowmobile tour for two. Headline Mountain Holidays will guide you on this half-day, remote expedition through the gorgeous alpine terrain passing meadows, forests, and frozen lakes along the way.
After a long day on the slopes, there may be no better way to unwind than with a calming spa treatment. Soothe your muscles with a massage for two at one of Whistler’s renowned spas and leave refreshed and ready to take on the trails again the next day. By night, you’ll have the opportunity to dine at one of Whistler’s numerous restaurants and bars with a $400 gift certificate. Stroll through the quaint pedestrian-only villages and choose one of the many award-winning dining venues, ranging from casual take-out to elegant fine dining.
