We watched the World Downhill Trail Bike Championships where the competitors somersaulted, flipped, spun and flung themselves down the mountain. We followed and rented some bikes and cycled what seemed like miles (but at a slower pace than Marthas Vineyard) - everyone and their dog was out. This is not a place to be a couch potato.
We had a ride on a Beaver seaplane up over the resort with magnificent views of the mountains and glaciers, landing on a beautiful turquoise glacial lake for a picnic elevenses before flying back
Whistler is a great place to come with teenagers. It is so geared to high adrenaline sports and keeping them out in the fresh air. There is so much to do for everyone and although everyone thinks of whistlers as a ski resort we would certainly be happy to return when we need one of those holidays to keep teenagers amused.
