Whistler is year-round fun

Written in INTERNATIONAL DESTINATIONS

You may know it as one of the best ski destinations in North America, but Whistler is pretty much the whole package these days. Brilliant, dependable, all terrain skiing in winter and outdoorsy heaven during summer.
Mountain biking, hiking, food festivals, fishing, golfing, gondola riding and more. The June July season is when summer activities really take off but don’t restrict yourself.

If you’re a nature buff check out a bear viewing ecology tour. You’ll go through ancient wood forests to visit active bear dens and watch mothers and cubs at play. Safely, we assume.

Eat it up; either at the top of a 6,000 ft mountain or down in the village. Your options are pretty good and the food quality excellent without the winter load up.

There are 18 incredible hiking trails for your enjoyment – the biggest effort is choosing! They’re mostly part of the Peak to Peak (Blackcomb to Whistler) experience and you can choose a level that suits. The easy part is all the on mountain eateries are open, so a picnic lunch is no problem.

Down the bottom of the mountain there’s plenty for the kids to do in the Base Adventure Zone at Blackcomb. And for the bigger kids – go ziplining through the trees and explore the hidden beauty of Fitzsimmons Creek and the picturesque forest valley between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.
