Surfs Up

There are many incredible trails to explore during your time at Whistler. But which one is the best depends on who you’re talking to. However, Surfs Up consistently ranks as one of the best among experienced skiers and snowboarders. There are steep cliff drop offs to thrill you while beginners can still have a go at other parts of the mountain, such as Burnt Stew Trail. One of the best things about this trail is the stunning 360-degree view.

Explore Whistler Village

Whistler Village isn’t your average indoor escape from the cold elements. Whistler Village is an attraction within itself. It has more than 200 shops, cafes and restaurants to explore. Food lovers will praise the chocolate shops and eateries with award-winning chefs. There are art galleries, bookstores and other specialty shops to keep you busy for hours.

Admire the views

There are incredible views surrounding Whistler. If you’d like to see one of the most popular, then head to Panorama Ridge. It’s a scenic hike located between the towns of Whistler and Squamish. Stroll through forests and meadows full of wildflowers. The peak sits at 2133m and offers views of two stunning mountains and Garibaldi Lake. This hike can easily be accomplished in a day, but make sure you’re prepared and leave early.
