In need of a weekend getaway? The mountains (a.k.a. Whistler) are calling your name. It's only a 1.5 hour drive from Vancouver and we all know how freaking beautiful the drive up the sea to sky highway is.
You're probably going up to Whistler to ski or snowboard anyways, so why not make a fun road trip out of it? This map has tons of awesome pit stops for you to make along the way. Time to round up your crew, grab some brews (of course, no brews for you if you're driving) and crank up the tunes.
