Whistler is a year-round destination with a full calendar of events and activities to excite and entertain. From its magnificent alpine playground, to its fine dining, cultural events, nightlife and spas, there really is something for everyone, at any time.
Winter in Whistler is, obviously, all about the alpine activities – world class skiing and snowboarding, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, dog sledding… But, if you can tear yourself away from the mountains long enough, there is the new Audain Art Museum to explore, First Nations culture to discover at the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, and, in December, the Whistler Film Festival hits the screens.
With the emergence of spring brings the opportunity for valley hikes and biking along the many trails. In April the World Ski & Snowboard Festival arrives for ten days of winter sports competitions, free outdoor concerts, fashion shows and world-renowned DJ sets. In May, the Victoria Day weekend is celebrated with Go Fest, with four days of activities that bridge the winter and summer alpine seasons.
Whistler is an amazing summer destination, offering serious fun and adventures for all ages. From mountain-biking and hiking, to horseback riding, bear viewing, canoeing and white water rafting, you will never be short of options. Need a break: treat yourself to a spa, or a spot of people-watching from one of the village restaurant patios.
September brings wonderful live music in the Outdoor Concert Series, the celebrated Vancouver to Whistler bike race, the Gran Fondo, and the Bearfoot Bistro’s annual World Oyster Invitational and Bloody Caesar Battle. Culture lovers will want to check out October’s Readers and Writers Festival, while November is marked by Cornucopia, Whistler’s annual festival of food and wine.
