British Columbia

What better way to escape the blues of a British winter than by jetting off again to blue skies, sunshine and BC powder? And with 200 runs offering waist-deep epic snow in Canada’s Winter Olympics host resort, the slopes of Whistler Blackcomb in British Columbia are the perfect place to blow off that seasonally affected steam.

It's obvious why Whistler is at the top of every skier’s wish list: after skiing on two renowned mountains, with over 8,000 acres of world class terrain between them, you can wind down with fantastic après ski in its pedestrian-friendly village.

You could experience all this in five-star style thanks to Tourism British Columbia, Ski Independence and The Independent, who have teamed up to give away an amazing seven-night holiday for two to ski Whistler this winter. You’ll be flown out to Vancouver before taking the scenic Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler, where you’l l stay in the five-star Whistler Westin Resort and Spa, just steps away from the gondola in the heart of the village - offering convenience, luxury and outstanding amenities. You’ll also get a six-day lift pass and ski or board rental included.
