Winner of the Whistler Select Writing Award for Travel Writing



Consistently voted the number one ski resort in North America, Whistler--situated at the top of a narrow pass in the Coast Mountains 120 kilometres from Vancouver--sees two million visitors each year, even though the town itself only boasts a full-time population of 10,000. World attention has been increasingly focused on Whistler since 2003, when it was chosen to host the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.



Top of the Pass: Whistler and the Sea-to-Sky Country is the incredible story of how a cluster of modest log cabins called Alta Lake mushroomed into the glamorous year-round recreation mecca known as Whistler. Stephen Vogler gives a rare glimpse of a mountain community and the lifestyles of its locals and visitors. Brimming with stunning colour photographs by Toshi Kawano and Bonny Makarewicz, this spectacular coffee-table book shows why Whistler is one of the most visited destinations in Canada.
