Favorite thing: After searching for bears on the Rainbow Lake Trail, I decided to see the Whistler area via the Valley Trail. It's a trail that extends form Alpha Lake through Whistler Village...past Lost Lake...touches Green Lake...and encircles Whistler Golf Course. I walked most of it in one afternoon. The Lost Lake area was the most scenic...the lake is nice...there's area for picnics and other lake activities. Whistler Village has a bunch of shops, restaurants...and lots of people...so I didn't stay there too long. Float Planes that gives tours of the area can be found on Green Lake...there's also a ghost town near Green Lake, but I didn't get to see it. Anyway...if you're looking to see more than ski runs in Whistler, Valley Trail is definitely an option.
Favorite thing: Of course, the reason to go to Whistler is to go up the mountain. Since we were there in early October, there was no snow, but we did get a great view.
Favorite thing: Here is a web cam view of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains
