Make your way to the Carleton Lodge in Whistler Village to check in 30 minutes prior to departure. Meet a snowmobile guide for the 5- to 10-minute trip to the base of Blackcomb Mountain, where you’ll be fitted with a full-face helmet and goggles, with the option to use gloves, boots, snow pants, and jackets.
Start with a short briefing on snowmobile operation and safety, then start your engine for the climb to Crystal Hut, a cozy cabin that looks out across the Coast Mountain Range, Whistler Valley, and thick stands of evergreen trees set off by deep snow.
Settle in and warm up with something hot, watching as alpenglow tints the snowy mountains a delicate pink, and the sun sinks beneath the snowy skyline. When you’re ready to hop back on the snowmobile, begin the return trip to the base of Blackcomb Mountain, where this tour concludes.
