Whistler Mountain is a mountain in the Fitzsimmons Range of the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains, located on the northwestern edge of Garibaldi Provincial Park. It is the location of the Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort and the town of Whistler, British Columbia. Because of the mountain's proximity to Garibaldi Provincial Park, ski lifts are regularly used to quickly access the alpine, and ski tour into the park. The summit is home to the Whistler Peak chair, and this makes it one of the most traveled summits in BC. The mountain forms part of a major ski and snowboard resort.

dbo:abstract
  • Whistler Mountain ist ein Berg des Gebirgszuges Fitzsimmons Range in der nordwestlichen Ecke des Garibaldi Provincial Park in British Columbia in Kanada. Seine Höhe beträgt 2181 m. Ursprünglich wurde der Berg London Mountain genannt, nach einer Bergwerksgegend in der Nähe. 1965 wurde der Berg umbenannt, da die Assoziation mit dem Londoner Wetter dem Tourismus nicht förderlich war. Die Bezeichnung Whistler wurde wegen der dort heimischen Murmeltiere und ihrem charakteristischen Pfeifen gewählt. Ende der 1960er Jahre wurde der Berg mit dem angrenzenden Blackcomb Peak zu einem Skigebiet ausgebaut. Die am Fuß der Berge liegende Stadt Whistler gehört zu den beliebtesten Wintersportorten. Während der Olympischen Winterspiele 2010 in Vancouver war Whistler zusammen mit dem angrenzenden Blackcomb Austragungsort der Ski Alpin-Wettbewerbe. (de)
  • Whistler Mountain is a mountain in the Fitzsimmons Range of the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains, located on the northwestern edge of Garibaldi Provincial Park. It is the location of the Whistler-Blackcomb ski resort and the town of Whistler, British Columbia. The original name of the mountain was London Mountain, named after a mining claim in the area. The locality was called Alta Lake before the creation of the Resort Municipality of Whistler in the 1970s, but the mountain's name had already been changed in 1965 as the associations with London's bad weather were deemed to be bad for advertising purposes. With the advent of the ski resort in the late 1960s the name was changed to "Whistler" to represent the whistling calls of the marmots, which are also known as "whistlers", that live in the alpine areas of the mountain. Because of the mountain's proximity to Garibaldi Provincial Park, ski lifts are regularly used to quickly access the alpine, and ski tour into the park. The summit is home to the Whistler Peak chair, and this makes it one of the most traveled summits in BC. The mountain forms part of a major ski and snowboard resort. (en)
  • Montanha Whistler é um pico da cordilheira Fitzsimmons na parte noroeste do Parque Provincial Garibaldi, localizado na estação de esqui e município de Whistler. Seu nome original era London (Londres), inspirado numa mina na região, que por sua vez assim foi denominada pela grande quantidade de neblina e chuva. A localidade se chamava Alta Lake antes da criação do município na década de 1970; mas o nome da montanha já havia sido mudado em 1965, pois a associação com o clima ruim de Londres não era um chamativo convincente para o local. Com o advento da estação de esqui no fim da década de 1960, o nome foi mudado para Whistler. (pt)
