Vancouver, British Columbia: Bustling Metropolis near Skiing Wonderland
Despite playing host to the 2010 Winter Olympics, Vancouver enjoys relatively mild winters; its coastal climate allows very little snowfall to stick to the ground. As a result, the historic Gastown neighborhood, with its cobblestone pedestrian mall near the waterfront, remains lively throughout the season. Once a cluster of saloons, the area is now full of clothing boutiques, coffee shops, and nightclubs, as well as an iconic steam-powered grandfather clock that whistles every quarter hour.
Though numerous ski resorts stand just outside the city limits, Whistler, about two hours north of Vancouver, is widely renowned for its skiing—Whistler Blackcomb even played host to the alpine-skiing events in the 2010 Winter Games. Powdery snow blankets the mountain by late November, attracting skiers and boarders who pack its slopes every winter, and the ski season lasts about six months. You can shuttle back and forth between the two mountains on the Peak 2 Peak gondola, the highest and longest unsupported cable-car span in the world. It’s surrounded by 360-degree views of ancient glaciers, dense evergreen forests, and mountain goats peddling time-shares.
