Winter brings more visitors to Whistler than any other season and for good reason. With 38 lifts servicing over 8,000 skiable acres, Whistler Blackcomb is definitely in a league of its own. In fact, each year Whistler Blackcomb is named the “Best Ski Resort in North America” by more ski publications than any other resort on the continent.
Besides skiing and snowboarding, there are countless other Whistler activities to enjoy while vacationing in Whistler during the winter months. Below is a list of some of our staff’s favourite winter activities.
Canadian Snowmobile Adventures – Guided tours up Blackcomb Mountain and snowmobile adventures up the Callaghan Valley!
Blackcomb Snowmobile – Snowmobiling, dog sledding, snowcat tours and fondue dinners.
Whistler Ziptrek Tours – Experience the exhilaration of flying as you glide along steel ziplines suspended high above the breathtaking white-water river that divides Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.
