Top Tips for Visiting Whistler
1. Alternative Winter Sports
Skiing not really your thing? Whistler offers countless other winter sports, from snow shoeing and outdoor skating in Whistler Village to bobsledding or night tubing at the Olympic Park.
Après-ski isn’t just relaxing after a tiring day on the slopes – in Whistler, it is a whole way of life. Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine in a hot tub or dine in one of the resort’s many award-winning restaurants; wherever you go, the atmosphere will be casual and relaxed.
3. Pedestrians Only
Whistler’s main village is actually a pedestrian only zone, so no cars are allowed on the charming streets. This makes Whistler the ideal location to explore on foot – who knows what secret treasures you will find?
4. Pack Layers
Temperatures in Whistler can change quite rapidly. Make sure you are prepared for the varying weather by bringing layers with you.
5. Visit Lost Lake park
One of Whistler’s hidden gems, visit Lost Lake Park if you would like to go off the beaten track and relax in tranquil surroundings. The park offers a sandy beach, almost 100km of hiking, do nothing swimming and cycling. We suggest you bring some beers and burgers and use one of the BBQs on site for a picnic with a difference.
