Sister of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, calls Whistler's bowls 'mind-blowing'

Pippa Middleton, sister of Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, has compiled a list of the world's best ski resorts for Vanity Fair.

Pippa Middleton has given Whistler the almost-Royal seal of approval, naming the B.C. ski resort one of the best in the world in a column for Vanity Fair.

Rubbing shoulders with glamorous destinations such as Saint-Moritz, Courchevel and Aspen, Whistler gets props for having the largest amount of ski-able terrain in North America.

Middleton is also impressed with the Peak 2 Peak gondola, "the longest and highest of its kind in the world."

"The bowls are mind-blowing," Middleton enthuses. "Particularly the run from Whistler Bowl to Tiger's Terrace."

For eating, Middleton recommends the high-end Araxi, as well as Sidecut, the steakhouse in the Four Seasons.
