Skiing and snowboarding fans of ABC’s The Bachelorette got a glimpse of Whistler & Banff this season. Vancouverite Jillian Harris brought along her harem of bachelors for several episodes to visit Vancouver, Whistler, and Banff.

In Vancouver, host of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Jillian took her dates to places such as Grouse Mountain, Granville Island and stayed at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. For those planning to attend the olympics this winter, this could provide you with a good preview of the host city.

At Whistler, site of several olympic alpine skiing events, the Bachelorette dates included zip lining via Ziptrek, dinner at the Bearfoot Bistro, snowmobiling and an airplane tour of the mountains and glaciers. Accomodations were provided by The Fairmont Chateau Whistler at the base of Blackcomb Mountain.

The cast then boarded the Rocky Mountaineer train to ride along the Canadian Pacific Railway going through the Fraser Valley and Canyon, the Okanagan, Hell’s Gate, the BC Rockies, with the final destination of Banff.
