Alexander Falls

Ubicadas en el valle de Callaghan, las cataratas Alexander de 141 pies son un hermoso destino para excursiones de un día desde Whistler Village. Solo asegúrese de llevar un picnic, ya que es un lugar favorito para almorzar tanto para los lugareños como para los visitantes. Las mesas de picnic están rodeadas por un espeso bosque, y la cascada que se estrella agrega un ambiente a este entorno salvaje que hace que sea fácil olvidar que está a solo 30 minutos del ajetreo de un importante centro turístico.

Alexander Falls está a solo minutos del Whistler Olympic Park y sus pistas de esquí de fondo, construidas para los Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno de Vancouver 2010, que están abiertas durante todo el invierno. En el verano, los senderos funcionan como senderos para caminar y senderos para bicicletas. Las rutas de senderismo que conducen más al Parque Provincial Callaghan Valley ofrecen acceso a una naturaleza más prístina, mientras que los campamentos en Callaghan y Madeley Lake brindan un lugar hermoso y absolutamente gratuito para pasar la noche.

La carretera de acceso al valle de Callaghan también es uno de los mejores lugares para observar la vida silvestre en el área de Whistler, incluidos los osos negros y pardos.

The basics

Alexander Falls is a common stop-off for travelers visiting the nearby Whistler Olympic Park. There is a drive-in lookout at the top of the falls, making it easily accessible to visitors who want spectacular views without having to embark on a lengthy hike. If you do want more adventure, there is a trail leading to the base of the falls, though it is only passable during winter. You’ll need snowshoes and a brave disposition to make it to the base; there are steep sections that make this trail unsuitable for beginners or children.

When to get there

If you want to view the falls when flowing, go in late spring or early summer, when the high volume of water—the result of the seasonal snowmelt—creates a dramatic cascade. For snowshoeing opportunities, the winter months (December–March) are best.
