You’re on vacation and not sure what to do, let us locals share our favorites with you!
Our Top 5 Staff Picks list helps you narrow down the long list of “Whistler Things to Do.”
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.
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!
