4 Cool and Awesome Things to Do in Whistler

Whistler is one of the world’s greatest ski destinations, and it’s easy to see why. But while the city is a paradise for ski lovers, it also has plenty of attractions that people often overlook. If you were thinking of coming over with the family or on your own, there are tons of things that you can do, whether you want something relaxing or to get your adrenaline pumping. Here are some cool things that you can do on your next visit to Whistler.

Go for Ski Lessons

Whistler has some of the most beautiful ski resorts you’ll find anywhere, and this is the perfect occasion to brush up on your skills. You can decide to go for individual bespoke lessons, go with a group, or with your family. You could even take things a step further and look into ski instructor courses in Whistler. Some will allow you to get your certification in as little as 5 weeks, so that would be a great option if you’re ready to make that type of time commitment.

Visit the Whistler Village

One of the things people love about Whistler is that it truly feels like a community. And there aren't many attractions that convey that sense of community more than Whistler Village. The Village offers a variety of lodging options, and allows visitors to co mingle with locals and other tourists. You can check out some of the shops, bars and restaurants along the Village Stroll. Or check out the Olympic Plaza, which is filled with mementos from the 2010 Olympics.

Check Out the Whistler Sliding Centre

If you’re into extreme sports and like fast paced action, a visit to Whistler’s sliding centre is a must. This is where the bobsled and skeleton competitions were held during the Olympics, and is a great place if you want to see people slide, or get in the action yourself. This track is one of the fastest in the world and is over 4500 ft long with a 500 ft vertical drop.

Lost Lake Park

If you’re more of a cross country skiing person, Lost Lake Park is a great option. The spot is also great during summer time, and is perfect if you’re looking for somewhere nice for a lakeside barbecue, to go for a hike, or do some fishing. You can also rent paddleboards, kayaks, and canoes on site. 
The trail is over 8km long, and offers a great view of Whistler Blackcomb. It is also great if you want to do some snowshoeing. Know, however, that parking on site is forbidden from June to September, so if you decide to come during that time, you’ll have to use the park’s shuttle service, which is totally free.

Whistler begs to be discovered, and is a great spot whether you’re thinking of coming alone, with friends, or with your family. Make sure that you consider all of these options, and don’t be afraid to venture off the beaten path as well.
