Whistler is a resort town in southwestern British Columbia, about 75 miles (124 km) northeast of Vancouver.

Boasting the largest ski area in North America, Whistler and its neighbor Blackcombe Mountain (connected by a dramatic gondola) are popular winter outdoor sports destinations. The area hosted some of the skiing and other alpine events for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Whistler has become a year-round destination, with extensive trails for hiking and mountain biking, as well as climbing, ziplining, and other outdoor activities.  The winter months (Dec-April) are primarily for snow sports.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.
