The Road To Whistler (British Columbia)

The Road To Whistler (British Columbia)

Whistler is a resort town about 125 kms (78 miles) north of Vancouver with an approximate population of 9,965 and an annual visitors of over 2 millions to primarily ski and snowboard in winter and to mountain bike in summer. With an elevation of 670 m (2,200 ft), it was the other venue of the 2010 Winter Olympic. (Source:Wikipedia)
Below is a kind of summary shots I've taken yesterday (Good Friday) which was a beautiful sunny day. You may enjoy them.

1 Along Georgia Street in DT Vancouver


2 Lions Gate Bridge is a suspension bridge opened in 1938 with a total length incl. north viaduct of 1,823 m (5,890 ft), incl. approach spans of 1,517.3 m (4,978 ft), main span alone of 473 m (1,550 ft), tower height of 111 m (364 ft) and a ship's clearance of 61 m (200 ft) (Source:Wikipedia)

7 Shannon Falls Provincial Park - stopover for lunch

9 Whislter Village - final destination

lovely, it's a good thing that there's enough of snows for skiing at this time of the year.
the sceneries along the way are really breathtaking.

Whistler is truly a haven for sports people and the road to it is simply amazingly scenic - one of the best in this part of Pacific Northwest.

nice thread. the highway going up Whistler is amazingly scenic and the city is equally beautiful and great to spend a holiday.
I thank you for sharing your wonderful photos.
