Carved into the majestic Blackcomb Mountain is the Coast Blackcomb Suites at Whistler, the ideal spot for taking in the overwhelming splendour of this iconic region. From this vista, the landscape unfolds in layers; the sky glows with orange and pink hues at sunset, followed by the rugged points of peaks, finishing with the deep evergreen of woodlands. Of course, being right on Blackcomb, you won't be able to experience the full splendour of the mountain itself - unless you envision yourself as a mere dot on the behemoth peak.
The comfortably appointed suites offer full kitchens (there is nothing quite like enjoying a favourite meal in a new-found favourite place) stocked with all the cookware and utensils you need to put on a delicious feast or enjoy a post-hike snack. Dishwashers are an added bonus. The suites also contain living rooms, complimentary WiFi, fireplaces and balconies - all the things you need to feel at home. The generous suites are 50% larger than typical hotel rooms.
One of the great perks at Coast Blackcomb is the complimentary continental breakfast in the morning. You'll find various cereals, bread, pastries, fruit, yogurt and Belgian waffles. And, if cooking isn't your forte, Whistler Resort is full of restaurants to choose from for your other meals. The fresh pastas at 21 steps are delectable (try the killer Puttanesca), while the Bison Back Rib Rack at Blacks (may be your first) with garlic mash is heavenly.
Whistler is one of Canada's best outdoor playgrounds any time of the year. A ride on the Whistler Village Gondola takes visitors up to some of the most breathtaking hiking trails known to humankind (and there are opportunities for bear sightings on the way). Thrill-seekers may want to book a rafting trip on the Elaho or Squamish rivers, or check out Ziptrek Ecotours. Of course, for those who have flocked to the area knowing that it's become quite the culinary hotspot, eating and drinking at all the trendy joints is a must.
