Ski with Olympian Steve Podborski in Whistler – the biggest vertical-drop resort in the whole of North America. This is big skiing and boarding and brilliantly managed. The resort itself is pedestrianised and chic. There are plenty of good bars and varied ethnic restaurants. Don’t miss Ziptrek – you dangle beneath the steel wire and whiz across the thundering creek far below you.
