Whistler, located an hour and thirty minutes outside of Vancouver, is one of North America’s most popular ski resorts and towns. Popular for skiing, snowboarding and every other winter activity you can imagine it is also a popular spot to visit in the summertime. Here are a few suggestions for things to do in Whistler in the summertime.

Mountain Biking

Whether you decide to take a mountain biking tour around Whistler, which includes all of your gear rentals, or you plan on running the trails by yourself with friends, you will definitely be impressed. There are extensive trail networks and technical tracks and you can’t beat the gorgeous scenery that surrounds you.

Explore the Treetops

If you don’t mind heights you might be interested in getting a little higher and exploring the canopy of Whistler’s forests by taking a zipling adventure tour or going on a treetop canopy walk.

Get wet

While visiting Whistler in the summertime you can also explore nature while getting a bit wet.  Take a white water rafting trip out on the Green, Lower Cheakamus, Elaho or Squamish Rivers. If you want something a little less extreme go fishing or take a leisurely paddle in a canoe along the River of Golden Dreams or kayak on one of the many nearby lakes.

Hit the slopes

If you go high up enough into the mountains you can still go skiing and snowboarding for a limited time in the summer months in Whistler. Take an express chair to the top of the Horstman Glacier on Blackcomb Mountain.

Explore the Village

Whistler Village is also a popular spot to explore in the summertime where not only can you find world-class accommodations but you can also enjoy many other delights. Enjoy a spa treatment, partake in some fine dining, do some boutique shopping, tour Olympic venues, visit museums, art galleries and more.
