The Whistler Book: All Season Outdoor Guide
This very informative book was written by Jack Christie.
Here is what Ron Dart wrote in his review;By Ron Dart (Abbotsford, British Columbia)
There are a variety of good and informative books on hiking and climbing in Alberta, British Columbia and Southwestern British Columbia, but none, thus far, on the Sea to Sky area of CoastalBritish Columbia. THE WHISTLER: AN ALL-SEASON OUTDOOR GUIDE BOOK, by Jack Christie, fills in this lack and need. THE WHISTLER is divided into three sections: Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton. Each of the sections highlights most of the important trails (of varying lengths and degrees) in the Sea to Sky area. There is a fine list of maps that bring this tidy missive to an fitting end and conclusion. There are also some evocative photographs (in color) that cannot help but draw the curious and interested to the Whistler area. There is no doubt THE WHISTLER has filled in an important niche in books on hiking in British Columbia. It is a timely text and should be faithfully used by anyone planning on hiking the many trails from Squamish to Pemberton. Needless to say, the longest section is on the Whistler area, but this is to be expected given the title of the book.

52 Best Day Trips From Vancouver.
Another wonderful book by Jack Christie for whistler outdoors books.
This is the type of book that could be classed as an encyclopedia for your day pack. When we first moved to Vancouver from the Yukon Territory we bought a book similar to this one. It was the best thing we could have done. Every Friday evening we would open it up and spend an hour or so searching out our next weekend hiking adventure. The book was perfect as we not only had the maps but the terrific description of each trail, the level of difficulty, the time it would take to do it and some great advice regarding what to wear and when to do the trail. This advice was invaluable for we were new to the west coast and the changing weather on the mountains.
After each hike we would mark the trail in our book as done and go on to the next the following weekend.
52 Best Day Trips From Vancouver is a book you truly must have. Jack Christie is an author who not only writes extremely well but who speaks from experience and his trail descriptions are bang on. Don’t miss this one.

Top of the Pass: Whistler and the Sea to Sky Country
Consistently voted the number one ski resort in North America, Whistler--situated at the top of a narrow pass in the Coast Mountains 120 kilometers from Vancouver--sees two million visitors each year, even though the town itself only boasts a full-time population of 10,000. World attention has been increasingly focused on Whistler since 2003, when it was chosen to host the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
Top of the Pass: Whistler and the Sea-to-Sky Country is the incredible story of how a cluster of modest log cabins called Alta Lake mushroomed into the glamorous year-round recreation Mecca known as Whistler. Stephen Vogler gives a rare glimpse of a mountain community and the lifestyles of its locals and visitors.
