In fact, the villages of Whistler are jam-packed in the summer with activities the entire family can enjoy. Check out a few of our favorites and start packing your bags for summer in Whistler.
Celebrate a National Holiday in Whistler
What better place than Whistler to celebrate Canada Day? The national holiday, set July 1, recognizes the passing of the Constitution Act in 1867 that united three colonies into a single nation. Dress in red and white for the parade at noon on July 1, followed by street entertainment until 6 p.m. Hear The Tenors perform classical music in Olympic Plaza at 8:00 p.m. on July 1. The Village Stroll is full of color and spectacular entertainment for the celebration.
Get In the Zone
Open from June 15 through Sept. 2 at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, the Family Adventure Zone offers fun-filled activities for the young and the young-at-heart. Located in Whistler Upper Village, the Adventure Zone has horseback riding, mini-golf, and air acrobatics.
Take Off On Two Wheels
Whether you’re a shredder on a mountain bike or prefer a leisurely tour ride, Whistler is a great place for summer biking. The world-famous Whistler Bike Park draws mountain bikers of all skill levels with four mountain zones, green trails, technical double-blacks and more. There’s even lift access available from Whistler Village and the Whistler Creekside Gondola. The park opened May 17 for the summer season.
Prefer sightseeing? Take the Valley Trail to Green Lake. It takes between 30 minutes to an hour and a half, and is a beautiful ride from Whistler’s Upper Village. Or, hit one of the multiple trails around Lost Lake, which is also a favorite place to swim in the summer.
