99 Things to Do

The Top 10


1. The 360 View

Add to Itinerary

Appreciate Whistler from the best view in town on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. You’ll get to say you’ve been on a record-breaking ride across the mountains.

2. Swim All Five

Add to Itinerary

There are five lakes in the valley — Alpha, Nita, Alta, Lost and Green Lakes. Make it your mission to swim in all five. Be warned: Some are chillier than others!

3. The Valley Trail

Add to Itinerary

This is the lifeblood of our town, connecting everything together in Whistler. Don’t miss out on a stroll down the Valley Trail.

4. Go Wild

Add to Itinerary

Head into the backcountry for the true B.C. experience. It’s all around you, including Garibaldi Provincial Park, which abuts Whistler. Just pick your direction and go wild.

5. Picnic at the Parks

Add to Itinerary

The perfect way to watch the sun go down in the summertime while the kids make the most of every last minute of the day.

6. Bike Park 101

Add to Itinerary

A few hours with a great mountain biking teacher can make a world of difference. It’s worth the investment for someone to show you the ropes before you let loose in the bike park. Also, it’s really fun!

7. Suss Out the Scene

Add to Itinerary

Grab the Pique (a shameless plug for our sister newspaper), speak to the Village Hosts, or corner your concierge. Find out what’s happening in town, especially if some of the awesome free concerts are taking place at Whistler Olympic Plaza.

8. Hike the Musical Bumps

Add to Itinerary

The hills are alive... Truly. On Piccolo, Oboe and Flute you’ll just feel like singing your way to the top and back down again. Just remember: not everyone can hold a tune like the von Trapps.

9. Olympic Journey

Add to Itinerary

From the sliding centre to the Nordic centre, learn about the 2010 Winter Olympics and its special place in Whistler’s heart. Were it not for an Olympic dream, Whistler would not be what it is today.

10. Audain Art Museum

Add to Itinerary

It’s new and it will set Whistler apart in the years to come. This is a rare and special opportunity to see the history of B.C. through the eyes of its artists, from the First Nations to the contemporary. Read more in FAQ.
