5 of 13

Home to the alpine, Nordic, and sliding events for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, Whistler’s twin peaks (Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain) comprise the biggest ski resort in North America. It’s also arguably one of the most beautiful, with grand wooden lodges surrounded by majestic mountains.

Get some mountain air: The Peak 2 Peak gondola, which connects Whistler’s two mountaintops via a 2.73-mile long, 1,427-foot tall tram-ride, allows access for both winter skiers and summer hikers—plus phenomenal views over the valley below.
