BC Travel Tuesday: Evolution Whistler Creeksideby
BC Travel Tuesday, with a Whistler spin, continues this week as I partner with backyardbc.com to help British Columbians get out and explore their home province.
backyardbc is a new travel website designed specifically for residents of British Columbia. Essentially a “be a tourist in your own backyard” program, participating hotels & resorts offer residents of BC exclusive rates and specials, designed to motivate BCers to travel more within the Province. Each offer has its own unique reservation code, and all bookings are done directly with our hotel and resort partners. Visit backyardbc online, on Twitter, or Facebook and see more of BC!
The winner of last week’s getaway to the Coast Whistler is Natalie (Comment January 17 at 11:09pm). We have 3 weeks left of Whistler accommodation giveaways and today’s prize is located in Creekside. Close to restaurants, the slopes, and the famous Southside Diner, there’s no shortage of things to do. Staying in and enjoying the snow-flanked hot tubs at your hotel is also a fine way to spend a chilly evening.

Absolutely positively IN LOVE with Whistler! Would love to take my pregnant wife up there for some time to relax before the baby comes.
It looks amazing~
What an amazing idea, get BC residents out in their own province. So many of us have no clue what BC has to offer. There’s a reason the word “beautiful” is on the licence plates (well the non-olympic ones anyway).
I’m embarrassed to say, it’s been a few years since I’ve been up to Whistler. I must change that.
Would love to win this prize for a sweet family weekend away.! It’s a great place to stay and enjoy Creekside & the slopes.
I have never stayed in Creekside, but Evolution Whistler Creekside looks AMAZING and would love the opportunity to stay there 🙂
I used @backyardbc to book a weekend at Creekside in Sept of 2011. We stayed at the Lodging Ovation’s hotel – not Evolution, but the sister one there…the name escapes me at the moment! Excellent hotel & Creekside is such a relaxed, low-key option to choose, instead of Whistler Village. I’d love to stay there again.
Would like to try staying in Creekside sometime.
I stayed here a couple of years ago and loved it!
I’ve never been to Whistler. This would be an awesome way to experience it!
Would love to get away for a weekend in Whistler! Have never skied, would be a great opportunity to try.
Would love to experience Whistler in the Winter!
This looks like a beautiful spot!
Wow, would love to win this!
Would love to get up to Whistler!

We were scanning in old photos of my husbands year at Whister and would love to win this to revisit the past, and see how much its changed these last 10 years.
Creekside looks amazing!! I would love to go snowboarding at Whistler…
Would love a weekend in Whistler. My girlfriend went skiing for the first time ever a couple of weeks ago and loved it. She’s love to have another go.
Creekside is a nice alternative to staying directly in whistler village. Much more quiet and peaceful!!
I would love to stay at this beautiful place.
Have just started learning to ski and would love to go up to Whistler once I’ve mastered the art of turning without falling over!
I’m hoping to get to Whistler once this winter!
This place looks fabulous!

I would truly love to have this weekend getaway with my guy, to celebrate our soon-to-be-announced engagement … that’s 23 years after he first dragged me, reluctantly, to Whistler to ski. We have NOT returned to Whistler together since then …
Creekside is still my favourite part of Whistler !
never stayed in Creekside before 🙂 first time for anything!
Sounds like fun!
Yes PLEASE! Great giveaway 🙂

Love Creekside in Whistler! Would love to take my mum for a well-deserved relaxing weekend away!
Was so glad to see all the snow last week. Whistler would be an even better place to enjoy it!
I’ve spent a lot of time couch surfing in Whistler this winter, I’d love the opportunity to stay in this lovely place!
Never ever have I been to Whistler…This would be awesome! Reading week is coming. I would love to sample some beer from Whistler Brewhouse also…My friend is the brewer!
I hope whoever wins this takes the opportunity to go to the Rimrock Cafe for dinner. I went once and it was one of the best dining experiences of my life. So convenient to Evolution.
Another great hotel, I’ve heard the ecalyptus sauna is amazing after a day on the mountain. Would love to check it out!
I love Vancouver!

Aww love it! So romantic 🙂
This looks amazing! And what a perfect location! Fingers and toes are crossed!
Amazing views! I would love to win it and spend some quality time with the bf 🙂
What a great way to promote BC residents to vacation in BC.
I have always wondered about Creekside; it is closer to the Callaghan Valley and Olympic Winter Park where we love to cross country ski and “discovered biaathlon” just a week before Christmas!
Whistler Creekside is the best! Quiet and all the comforts of home with the excitement of Whistler only a couple of minutes away. And great restaurants too!
I’d love to go to Whistler and ride the Peak to Peak!
a weekend in whistler is just what the doctor ordered
I need to see Whistler at least once before I get old and can’t get my boogie on!
haven’t really spent any time in Whistler. This would be awesome!
I can completely picture myself in front of the fire kicking back
Please get me off this rock : ) (Vancouver Island)
My +1, a former Torontonian (converted BC Coaster, 6 years and not looking back), has lived in Vancouver for 6 years and never ventured up to Whistler! I would love to help him experience the beauty of our coastal mountains, with the luxury of Evolution Whistler as our home base and warm, cozy day’s end sanctuary. Thanks for the great giveaway!
Wonderful for winter

Would be so delish to get some r and r and mountain time.
Would love to take my hubby so we can spend a relaxing weekend up at Whistler. He injured his back so no boarding for him (torture!).
Don;t get up to Whistler very often. Very pricey and unaffordable to the lower middle class. Would love to win this for a family treat.
This would be an awesome prize to win!

I havn’t been to whistler in years!! Would be amazing to do for my birthday!!
2 min to the gondola! Sweet!
Love spending time in Whistler.
Amazing back country-side views!!
Whistler, the Gondola, mountain lodge, cozy fireplace, outdoor heated pool, hot tubs, eucalyptus steam room – sounds like a good retreat to me.
Believe it or not, I haven’t been to Whistler for awhile.
I would love to have some quality time with Whistler!!
What an incredible opportunity, Whistler is amazing!
Love Creekside. It’s so laid back
Beam me up….never been
I would really love to experience Whistler this way. I’ve never had any overnight trips at Whistler and this could be my first if I do get to win…Thank you!
Whistler is so much fun!
I love love love Whistler it is one of the best mountains to ski at, especially because the weather conditions are almost always great! The green trails are so easy for new skiers and snowboarders and the blue runs offer a bit more of a challenge. Since it is a 2 hour drive for most, staying there overnight is the best way to enjoy your visit!
I have fond memories as a teenager taking the big greyhound bus up for school trips!
fun, fun, fun
Would love some time away in this wonderful spot 🙂
Whistler is the best!
This would be a fantastic getaway! Fingers crossed!
My wife would be very happy with me if I won this getaway! We haven’t been to Whistler in years.
Great Whistler getaway! My wife would also be very happy with me if I won this Whistler getaway!
Would love a staycation!!
This would be great to win for the brownie points I’d get!!!
I love Whistler but I haven’t been since before the Olympics. It’ll be a great getaway from work.
Love to get away to Whistler!
Would love to see it up close! Lived in Van years ago and never had the chance to get up the mountain!
A relaxing break in Whistler would be amazing after a long week at BCIT with my man!
I’ve been to Whistler once in the summer and would LOVE to go again! Looks like an amazing trip.
Would love to go snowboarding at whistler!!
Nothing better than a whistler creek side getaway, would be delighted to win!!
Whistler has lots of snow lately. Good times!
I’d be good for a weekend in Whistler. Swish swish swish.
I <3 Whistler and would love a getaway for my upcoming birthday. Woohoo! Whistler is a winter wonderland.
I’ve been meaning to get to Whistler this season. Living it up in Creekside would certainly help.
Haven’t stayed in Whistler in years! It would be a nice treat to get back there and see what has changed!
What a treat this would be! Good luck everyone!
Haven’t been to Whistler around this time of the year.. it’s probably still a winter wonderland up there!
