Skiing in Whistler is awesome – that goes without saying. But Whistler has something for everyone,  including an excellent fine-dining scene. Earlier this year, Managing Editor toured the resort town that’s a 90-minute drive from Vancouver and discovered how to enjoy a Great Canadian Weekend in the mountains.

Brijbassi writes: “For many visitors, the golf is secondary to the unusual residents on the golf course at Chateau Whistler. About a half-dozen black bears, including a female named Alice and her two cubs, roam the grounds. The Today Show from Australia was recently in Whistler filming the black bears. Phil Chambers, group coordinator at the Chateau Whistler course, told me that one bear, who has passed away, would even have fun swatting balls from the greens. Encounters can be entertaining and a bit nerve-wracking, although there haven’t been any reported incidents with the bears. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. in 1993, the par-72, 6,635-yard track rises 400 feet, a layout that gives players outstanding views of the mountains and the natural surroundings of the British Columbia coast.”
