5,280 Feet of Epic Fun in Whistler
Home to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games Whistler is a giant of a mountain with 5,280 vertical feet of skiable terrain. Getting there from the East Coast for a long weekend of skiing is an epic trip filled with a lot of fun and great skiing. Flying into Seattle is a much cheaper option vs. Vancouver and only adds 3 hours. The drive up to Whistler is scenic and you travel through Seattle and Vancouver for extra exploration options.

This was my favorite run. You have to hike a little to get to thiis run, but definitely worth it.

After 3 days of skiing it's time to head back. Make sure to stop in Vancouver and Seattle if you have time. @ Stanley Park, Vancouver
13. One Last Stop
Stop into Seattle to see the sites and grab a bite to finish off an epic skiing trip. The Pike Place Chowder shop is a good place to stop for a soup to warm you up.
