Whistler is the epitome of a quaint, yet vibrant mountain town. While most people associate Whistler with winter activities like skiing, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling, we’re happy to announce that there are plenty of fun things to do here throughout the year.

We’ve done everything from relaxing on the town lakes to flying through the treetops on the longest zipline in North America, and we’ve had tons of fun exploring all that Whistler has to offer.

Whistler is also filled with some incredible landscapes. The Whistler and Blackcomb mountains surround the town, and these areas are a dream for hikers, mountain bikers, and anyone who enjoys winter sports. There are beautiful forests and lakes to explore, and plenty of things to do in the main part of town as well.
