Whistler is the mecca for having fun outdoors, and as a local once said, “It’s impossible to fully explore Whistler in one life-time, there is just too much to do". That is why we put together a list of the Top 10 Things To Do in Whistler on your winter vacation. Please note however, if you are someone who likes to wear a wing-suit and jump off a cliff, then this list probably is not for you. But, if you have a family, are a couple or a group of friends just looking for a fun time then this list is for you!
Top 10 Things To Do in Whistler:
- Ski & Snowboard: Whistler is blessed with not one but two legendary mountains, Whistler & Blackcomb. Depending on your skill level Whistler tends to be a bit more beginner friendly because it's not as steep at Blackcomb. However, both mountains have something for everyone. On Whistler, we recommend heading up peak chair to really appreciate the majestic mountain tops of the area and then head off the back towards Symphony. When it comes to cruising fun lines Symphony is the spot for all skill levels above first timers. On Blackcomb, we would recommend heading up Glacier chair on any blue bird day and then taking the cat track all the way to Crystal Chair, like Symphony there are winding piste runs for days with amazing views.
- Snowmobile Tours: When Canadians aren't sliding down a mountain or on a sheet of ice we’re likely touring throughout the mountains on a snowmobile. You can experience this exhilarating tradition on a guided tour suited for all levels of riding with options for private groups, families and dual riders. The reason this activity is one of our favourites is because there are so many different types of tours. You can experience the perfect mix of easy riding and spectacular scenery, take a tour up the mountain at night to a fondue dinner under the stars or have a take a 4 hr guided tour up the Callaghan Valley to a rustic cabin for a good old Yukon breakfast. Snowmobile tours are awesome!
- Dog Sledding: Step back in time with mans best friend and experience how our ancestors got around this snow-globe of a country. Relax in a comfortable sled and let professional mushers tour you through the Callaghan valley. Note to party’s interested, it's best to book this activity in advance because it fills up quickly.
