Whistler Vibe: Tourism Whistler's monthly media newsletter

Welcome to Tourism Whistler's media newsletter, featuring information on what's new, upcoming events, as well as quirky and interesting Whistler story ideas. 

July 2011

Summer is on the horizon and longer days make it ideal to get out and enjoy the best Whistler has to offer. Where else can you experience a triathlon of activities choosing from four championship golf courses, the world-renowned Whistler Mountain Bike Park, Blackcomb Glacier skiing and riding until end of July (wrapping up North America's longest ski season), kayaking, paddleboarding, cross-country biking, hiking, and more? Summer in Whistler also provides endless opportunities to explore a variety of culinary experiences. Cheer on the competitors at the Canadian National BBQ Championships, enjoy a slow stroll with wine glass in hand through the popular Feast of Fields event or pull up a chair at one of 90+ restaurants, bars and patios serving up tastes from all over the world. Can you think of a better way to end your triathlon day?
