Whistler has been designated the best place for snowboarders to live, according to the September issue of Transworld SNOWboarding magazine.
The magazine compiled a list of the best resorts for boarders to call home and placed Whistler at the top, citing the true village atmosphere, long snow season and unparalleled riding.
Whistler also consistently wins the magazine’s annual reader resort poll.
Locations for the best place to live were selected based on a variety of criteria, including placement in the TransWorld SNOWboarding annual resort poll, quality of snow, length of season, and nightlife.
Coming in second place was California's Mammoth Mountain, followed by Jackson Hole, Wyoming, The Arlberg, Austria and Summit County, Colorado.
