Whistler Summer Activities


Summer as it should be. With spectacular views to be had, wild bears wandering the lush green parks munching on berries, deer bounding past on the alpine trails and wildflowers tickling your knees, our mountains are a paradise for summer holiday makers.


Escape to the Mountains in Summer

Take a paddle on the majestic lakes, dip into the fresh water rivers and creeks, feed your adrenaline with downhill mountain biking and zip-lining, and dine on the terrace whilst watching the sea planes land on Emerald’s water.

Whistler Winter Activities


Not skiing or boarding today? If your legs need a break, or that’s simply not your thing, Whistler offers a host of winter options. From tubing, outdoor ice skating at the Olympic Plaza, indoor rock climbing, or just enjoying the Apres buzz whilst taking in a band. There is no shortage of things to do in our Whistler Wonderland!


The Magic of Winter in Whistler

Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling will take you into high adventure through the beautiful back country. And, let’s not forget, there’s always the outdoor Scandinave Spa to soothe the muscles and the soul!
