Area Travel Guide

Winter Activities
Whistler is ranked "#1 Ski Resort in North America" by SKI Magazine, with more than 8,000 acres of skiable terrain and a vertical rise of over 5,200 feet on two magnificent side-by-side mountains that feature some 200 runs. Whistler also boasts more than 17 miles of track-set cross-country trails that wind through Whistler Valley along alpine lakes and through tranquil forests.

Other winter activities include dog sledding, heli skiing, sleigh rides, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, ecotours and flightseeing.

Summer, Spring and Fall Activities
Alpine sightseeing and hiking is the way to experience Whistler when the snow melts. Whistler Mountain's fully enclosed gondola will whisk you to the alpine in comfort. Sightseeing passes are available at the front desk of Mountainside Lodge.

Other ways to sample the high country are mountain biking, rock climbing, mountaineering, guided trekking, fishing, swimming, boating, horseback riding and naturally, golfing in some of North America's most breathtaking courses.

Throughout the year, our staff can direct you to museums, natural parks, restaurants, theater and more – just contact the concierge!
