Adventures & tours

Once proud host to the alpine, Nordic and sliding events during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the community of Whistler still exudes the same pride and passion that world-class athletes experienced back in 2010. It's easy to allow yourself to be drawn in by the epic snow and various attractions of this winter wonderland.

The scenic, snow-capped mountain journey along the Sea-to-Sky Highway is a great way to begin your even greater Whistler Blackcomb resort adventure.

Grab your skis or board and enjoy the 16 bowls, three glaciers and 200-plus runs on 8,171 acres of playground for all levels and abilities. For those not wanting to speed down a mountain, the valley welcomes you with 80 kilometres of cross country trails. Whistler boasts a record-breaking average of 11.74 metres or 38.5 feet of snow annually. And if that's not enough adventure for you, outdoor skating, tubing, snowshoe trails and even night-time snowmobiling awaits you.

Whistler is proud of its family-friendly atmosphere and offers a variety of wintery fun things for you to see and do in one of Canada's most popular destinations.
