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.
Several skiing runs are established on the mountain with Whistler Village at the base of the mountain on the side facing Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Village on the face opposite. The 2010 Winter Olympics sliding sports take place on its slopes with the Whistler Sliding Centre located on it.
The name Canada comes from the St. Lawrence Iroquoian word kanata meaning "village" or "settlement".
