Mountain biking in Whistler on the Valley Trail is a must when you visit. It has gorgeous mountain views with a huge network of trails. Too bad when you tell your wife to turn left at the fork in the trail, she goes right, and when you tell her to turn the other "left", she almost bikes into a rock and falls off the bike. I guess the scenery confused her!! lol
We are currently staying at Nita Lake Lodge which is located in Whistler Creekside, which is one of the ares just south of Whistler Village. Our balcony is overlooking Nita Lake and the surrounding mountains, where you can step outside and start mountain biking on the Valley Trail, or fish for rainbow trout in the surrounding glacier fed lakes. Truly paradise!

Had a one week business trip to Vancouver, and now extended it 5 days in Whistler. This lodge is really wicked!! Our balcony is overlooking the shores of Nita Lake and surrounding by snow capped mountains!! Walked right outside the lodge today to catch a nice rainbow trout. Hiked some really nice trails to some stunning waterfalls. Also, the Kokanee Crankworx festival is going on in the main village, and will check that out tomorrow...it's the worlds biggest mountain bike festival..
