Summer Alpine Hiking & Peak 2 Peak Experience

There is no better way to cool down in the summer than to head to the top of Whistler or Blackcomb Mountains for some summer sightseeing and alpine hiking! There are 18 trails with 50 kilometers of hiking and walking routes and the stunning views of surrounding coastal mountain peaks and vista’s will take your breath away!

Once you are at top of the Whistler gondola stroll over to the peak chair where the short ride up takes you to new levels with sights of Black Tusk an ancient volcano! Hike the peak trails and learn about the Whistler alpines topography, vegetation and more! This short hike is great for family learning and an opportunity for some great family photos with 360 degree views of the surrounding peaks of the Coast Mountain range!

After the Peak chair, head over to Blackcomb Mountain via the Peak 2 Peak Gondola! This engineering marvel has spectacular views and is a 4.4 kilometer journey connecting both mountains. Three world records were broken with this lift; it is the longest unsupported span at 3.024 kilometers across, the highest lift at 436 metres above the valley floor and the Peak 2 Peak is the longest continuous lift system in the world!

Enjoy some alpine dining and take in fresh creations at Whistler Blackcomb’s mountain top restaurants! For a truly unique dining experience end at the Roundhouse on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday evening and indulge in some mouth-watering BBQ! Friday’s feature is slow roasted pork with all the fixings; Saturday’s are slow cooked prime rib and BBQ! The Sunday feature is the Pacific Seafood Grill with the best of west coast seafood with all the trimmings! There is no better way to end a day of hiking then to re-fuel so ensure you get your tickets in advance as they can sell out fast!

Make sure you get your Peak 2 Peak lift tickets this summer with the Sundial Boutique Hotel’s Peak 2 Peak Package and experience a day like no other! Don’t miss out on this adventure take the ride up to cool down on those hot summer days, capture the stunning sights and indulge in a savoury experience and return back to the Sundial for a luxurious end to your day!
