Winter Adventures from Whistler

If you’re interested in winter activities, Whistler is your place. From skiing and snowboarding to fondue on top of the mountain, there are plenty of things to do, and the town itself has a jumping nightlife at over 90 restaurants and a number of hopping bars.

First and foremost, Whistler’s slopes are where the action is. With 20 lifts, including the Peak-2-Peak Gondola between Whistler and Blackcomb, you’re bound to find runs suitable to your levels of skill and daring. Add four slope-side restaurants, and you can easily spend all day on the mountain. However, skiing and snowboarding are just two ways to enjoy Whistler’s snow.

Snowmobiling at Whistler is a great alternative to dangling your legs from a chairlift. Like the aforementioned downhill sports, there are tour packages that cater to guests’ experience and skill, from family oriented trails to more extreme, single-rider adventures. Whistler also has an alpine tube park, where you can zoom down hills on inner tubes. The resort offers snowshoe rentals and dogsled tours, as well as the unique opportunity to view the mountains from the vantage of a zipline. Over the course of three hours, you’ll hang suspended over the terrain from a series of ziplines, cables and suspension bridges. Bring your camera, but make sure you have a strap for it! An alternative to the zipline is a glacier hike. With the assistance of a guide, you’ll learn to use glacier-climbing equipment and climb to the top of Whistler Mountain. Be aware that this activity is only available May through October.

While you can’t hike the glacier in the winter, you can still go on a Blackcomb Mountain Safari. On this adventure, you’ll ride a snowmobile at dusk through the mountain’s old-growth forests, arriving at a rustic, alpine lodge to bask in some majestic views before returning to Whistler Village. On your last evening in Whistler, book this trip; upon your return, get dinner and drinks at one of the resorts celebrated nightspots, such as the Garibaldi Life Company Bar and Grill.
