Hello Blackcombpeaks friends! We hope you been enjoying this winter season as much as we are! The Whistler snowfall started very well right from the beginning in December and it's been a fantastic season. But every winter, we are bound to get a few rainy days, which we saw in the last week. That is why we are bringing some tips for indoor activities – because when the snow conditions aren't optimal, there are no excuses for not staying active in our beautiful village. And even after several great days on the slopes, our guests seek out non-snow activities from time to time, simply because there's so much to do in Whistler!
Our Top Picks for Whistler Indoor Activities
