A completely updated new edition of the essential outdoor guidebook for the Whistler area. Concise, thorough, and easy to use, this updated edition of The Whistler Book gives readers all the information they need for the variety of recreational opportunities. As Jack Christie notes, "adventurers flock here year-round to indulge themselves": in winter with skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing; in summer with camping, hiking, paddling, rock climbing, fishing, swimming, and mountain biking. Christie leads the way with handy, detailed trail maps for all locations, destination highlights, insider info boxes, and tips on some of his personal favourite spots.
Jack Christie (dubbed "Mr. B.C." by the Toronto Sun) is one of the most trusted sources on outdoor recreation and travel. Host of Shaw TV's The Rec Report, outdoors columnist with The Georgia Straight, and creator and host of CBC Radio's Beyond the Backyard series, his articles appear regularly in Explore, British Columbia Magazine, and National Geographic Traveller. In 2004, Christie received Tourism British Columbia's Tourism Media Award.
