The Games are scheduled to take place between 12 February to 21 March and holidays are available throughout, so that visitors can enjoy the Winter Olympics and all the excitement that surrounds the build up to the event. The West Coast has some of the best skiing in Canada - with snow guaranteed and scenery that will blow you away. If you're crazy about skiing, Canada has an incredible experience just waiting for you…

Whistler is a gold medal destination for many ski fanatics and is considered one of the premier mountain destinations in the world. Not only is Whistler the first choice for the Alpine events at the 2010 Winter Games, but a firm favorite for Après Ski too. The Crystal Lodge is within walking distance of the gondolas to Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, an ideal place to try out the Olympic runs. If travellers want some pampering after a long day of skiing, they can try the spectacular Delta Whistler Village Suites, with facilities including a Solarise Wellness Spa.

If the hustle and bustle of the Winter Olympics is too much, Skiing in California is a fantastic alternative! Not only is the snowfall incredibly reliable and the scenery unbelievably beautiful, the pistes are perfectly groomed and the lift systems impeccably maintained. It's all part of the service, designed to ensure holidaymakers have the time their life.
