Pemberton BC. Nine times out of ten, anyone traveling north on British Columbia's Sea to Sky Highway has one destination in mind: Whistler... And for good reason. Hailed as one of the top alpine recreation destinations on the planet, Whistler is home to two peaks - Whistler and Blackcomb. Combined, they boast over 8 thousand acres of skiable terrain, over 200 runs, 38 lifts, 5 snowboard parks, 2 super pipes and over five thousand feet of vertical drop. Add dozens of chalets and world class accommodation plus a European-style pedestrian village with over 100 nightclubs, bars and restaurants and it's easy to see why this Pacific Coast jewel won the bid for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. Even after the 7 month ski and snowboard season, Whistler is popular with hikers, naturalists, fishing enthusiast and in particular, mountain bikers. Every summer, the Kokanee Crankworx event takes over the resort as the world's best mountain bikers compete for honours ranging from downhill racing to individuals skills to big air competitions. Factor in demonstrations, exhibits and live music and you've got one of the best biking events on the planet.
