Summer in Whistler is incredible. From the stunning 360 views at the top of the mountains to biking in the valley. Here is why you should be getting excited about summer now and what not to miss!
If you think Whistler is just for skiing, then guess again. Home to the best mountain bike park in the world, Whistler is a mecca for biking enthusiasts all over the globe. If hitting the park doesn’t quite take your fancy, there’s plenty of option all over the village. You can enjoy trails for all abilities at Lost Lake, or simply cruise along the valley trail and take in the stunning lake views.
You may not realize how beautiful Whistler is until you’ve come here in the summer. Take a ride in the Village Gondola and take in stunning sights at the top of the mountain. Visit Whistler in June and you can see the snow walls at the Peak of Whistler Mountain. Coming later in the year? Fear not, with over 50km of hiking trails you definitely won’t miss out on those summer views. If you’re not scared of heights, you can gain access to the Cloudraker Skybridge and Raven’s Eye Cliff Walk with your Peak 2 Peak 360 Experience ticket. Marvel in the spectacular views in every direction and see the Coast Mountains stretching out for miles.
Coming to Whistler in the summer and not seeing a bear is like going to a dog park and not seeing a dog. They are everywhere. Take a ride in the Village Gondola up Whistler Mountain and you’re almost guaranteed to see a bear casually strolling around. You can book a bear tour if you want to get taken directly to the best bear watching spots.
If golf is your passion, then Whistler is the place for you. Rated as Canada’s number one golfing destination, you can enjoy 4 golf courses, designed by some of the world’s top designers.
Whistler has plenty of options if you want to just relax by the lake and absorb your surroundings. Lost Lake, Alpha Lake and Alta Lake all have dog-friendly beaches so you don’t have to leave your furry friend behind. Rent a paddleboard, or canoe and enjoy a leisurely float around the lake.
