Planning a trip and wondering what’s happening in Whistler? No matter the season there are always fun things to do for the whole family.
The food! So many terrific restaurants. (Note to self, write a post about favorite Whistler restaurants.)
Venture across the Cloudraker Skybridge hanging 50 metres above Whistler Bowl and over to the West Ridge lookout for unparalleled 360 degree views of Coast Mountains, the Whistler Valley and village below.
Looking for a thrill? Try ziplining!
Reach new heights with a ride on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola for spectacular views of the Whistler Valley and alpine.
Hiking – Wander Whistler Mountain on a mountain top hike surrounded by wildflowers or venture in the valley and uncover a local secret like the Train Wreck. This one called Musical Bumps offers views of Flute Summit, Cheakamus Glacier, Black Tusk, and Cheakamus Lake. Check out this insider’s guide to hiking gorgeous glacier fed Garibaldi Lake.
Another terrific hike is the Panorama Ridge hike near Garibaldi Provincial Park.
Bike ride throughout Whistler along the scenic Valley Trail, or crush dirt with a downhill ride in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
Soothe tired and sore muscles with a massage and dip in the hot and cool baths at the Scandinave Spa. I still haven’t been to this spa, but it’s one of my sister’s favorite places and other close friends have raved about it.
And of course – skiing! The ski season in Whistler/Blackcomb usually begins mid-late November and runs through late April. Blackcomb Mountain stays open for spring skiing and snowboarding until mid-May. There is another short season of Summer Glacier Skiing & Snowboarding on Horstman Glacier on Blackcomb Mountain in June/July.
