Whistler Winter Activities
Welcome to North America’s top Ski resort and host Mountain of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Ski the same mountains conquered by Olympians, or take in the other great hidden gems of Whistler winter activities.
Whether you are looking for that next adrenaline rush, to gain some serious vertical, become one with nature or relax, dine and unwind, we’ve got it all. You’ll never find a dull moment here – that is unless you want one, then of course you can put your feet up and relax. We don’t consider that dull either though!
Take the leap! Whistler Bungee is BC’s highest and most pristine year-round bungee jumping site. Set between gorgeous old growth forest and rugged basalt column cliffs, you’ll experience the exhilaration of jumping from a 160ft (53 meter) bridge spanning 300ft over the glacier fed Cheakamus River. There is nothing like it.
A great year-round activity, Whistler offers a variety of fishing options and locations, from fly-fishing to spin casting, our knowledgeable guides will take you to remote lakes, hidden fishing holes and local rivers.
The ULTIMATE adventure. Purely untouched powder and no lift lines await you on this adventure. An exhilarating helicopter ride to snow-capped mountain peaks where you create the tracks while getting some serious vertical – can it get any better! Offering full days in mountain wilderness, tours include lunch, avalanche safety equipment and experienced guides. Skiers and boarders must be intermediate or advanced and be able to ski blue runs confidently.
Whistler boasts over 129km of nordic skiing, whether it’s gliding along track-set trails or creating your own tracks in the wildness, you’re sure to see the winter paradise that Whistler is. Callaghan Valley, home to cross-country, biathlon, Nordic combined and ski jumping events for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, offers a variety of recreational skiing options for all abilities with 42km of trails in Callaghan Country and 55km of trail at the Whistler Olympic Park.
Peak 2 Peak
The record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is an engineering marvel that links together Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains at their peaks. Boasting the longest unsupported lift span in the world at 3.024 kilometres (1.88 miles), it’s also the highest lift of its kind at 435 metres/1,427 feet. Access to the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is included in the purchase of a Whistler Blackcomb winter or summer lift pass.
Skiing & Snowboarding
Whistler Blackcomb boasts over 8100 acres of terrain, including 12 alpine bowls, 3 glaciers, 200 marked trails and one vertical mile. Oh and did we mention the variety our terrain offers? Glades, chutes, terrain parks and half pipes, tree forts and adventure parks for the kids. That pretty much says it all.
Experience the majestic side of Whistler with a gently gliding sleighride through beautiful wooded trails. Hot cocoa and cozy blankets will keep you warm on your giant Percheron Horse led tour. Make an evening of it with a dinner package that includes a gourmet fondue dinner after your ride.
Leave the ski’s behind and try out a different way to explore! Strap on a pair of snowshoes and take a guided tour of Green Lake, Lost Lake or Whistler Mountain, get some exercise and learn about Whistler’s eco-system at the same time. Tours available from beginner to advanced. Do an evening tour and warm up with a gourmet three-course fondue dinner at The Den at Nicklaus North.
A fun and unique way to explore Whistler’s wilderness. A great activity for the whole family, knowledgeable local guides will take you on an adventure through snowcapped trees and into a winter wonderland. Choose from fresh track morning tours, daytime or evening adventures with a backcountry dinner.
Whistler Tube Park
Our winter version of water slides! With over 1000 feet of sliding fun, this family friendly activity is great for all ages. Just like the ski hill, there are green, blue and black runs for all levels and abilities and a magic carpet easily transporting you back to the top. When you need a break from all that sliding, there is a fire pit, play area and snack station to re-fuel at.
Soar through Whistler’s majestic old growth forests and experience the thrill of stunning creeks flowing rapidly below. Whether you are with family, a group of friends, or that special loved one, ziplining is guaranteed to be a fun and exhilarating experience for everyone!
