The eagles have landed in BC's Squamish Valley

Whistler-Blackcomb is pumped up about its 119cm base (47 inches) of snow. With 55 percent of the terrain open (5,500 acres), it's looking like a good winter. But Whistler is more than the sum of its snow.

It's also about eagles in nearby Squamish, when 3,000-4,000 of the majestic birds swoop into the Squamish Valley to dine on chum salmon during the winter months.

The Adara Hotel in Whistler is offering a unique Eagle Safari Package, which includes:

  • One night’s accommodation in a Superior Guestroom or Loft Suite
  • Breakfast for two at The Mix
  • Guided Eagle Safari Tour for two on the Cheakamus and Squamish Rivers (with a hot chocolate break and lunch at the Howe Sound Inn)
  • Round-trip transportation from Whistler to Squamish
  • Disposable camera
