    Whistler Gondola

    by ChadSteve1975 Written Jul 6, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Gondola takes you up from the village up to the summit.

    Of course in Summer it's just for a look see. In winter it's well a gimme...

    In Summer the return ride costs about $20 Canadian. From the top you can walk around a path upto toward the snowline depending on how much it has receded.

    Mountain Bike riders can't go all the way to the top. They hop off at the midstation.

    Up the top there are helicopter rides and a few other things. The shop in the summer has a few sales of clothing which was good value when I was there.

    The Gondola still runs in Summer

  • Snowmobiling

    You can go on Snowmobiling trips for about $50 per person. It's a little pricey but totally worth it. We had the time of our lives, we took a night trip and went all the way up to Crystal Hut on Blackcomb. At the top there were snacks and drinks avaliable, all included in the price. ONe thing that I reccoment is to BUY INSURANCE!!! We didn't and I flipped the snowmobile over..uh oh... There was no damage but we were lucky.

    Strolling the village

    by canadacutey Written Dec 24, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a long day of riding, you may not want to go for a stroll, but maybe on one of your off days from riding, you will want to take a walk through the village. Many quaint shops and nice little cafe's and restaurants to please everyone's fancy. Great for people watching too.

    i came to this town with a friend of mine. all we did was SNOWBOaRDIng, althought i am not very good at it. i went there Feb this year, and the weather was kinda warm, so the bunny hills were practically melting away, but the black/blue ones were well maintained.

    when you are on the top of the hill, the scenery really really nice, and dip yourself in the out door jacuzzi and enjoy the scenery is amazing.

    Bear tours

    by Pat&ZoAnn Updated Nov 11, 2003

    This is the reason we came to Whistler. Our guide was renowned bear expert Michael Allen.

    We started at the base of Whistler Mountain just before daybreak, and the guide took us up both Whistler and Blackcomb to areas he knew bears would be feeding. Unfortunately, the bears had mostly finished feeding just before we were there, but we did get up close and personal with a couple of them.

    As well as bears, the view was quite spectacular. Click here to view a short video of BC wildlife, including the bear we saw. May not work with dial-up connection.

    Ziptrek Ecotours

    by Pat&ZoAnn Updated Nov 11, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's not really "off the beaten path", but it is also pretty expensive to call it a "must-see". However, it sure is a lot of fun. The staff outfits you with a harness, gives you a little training, then you're zipping along a cable above a mountain canyon. What a rush!

    Hot Tub Hopping!

    by Jyrki Updated Sep 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ah rebelious youth. This is good times. Whistler is full of people with lots of money and most people who own property in Whistler also own property in Vancouver. This means that they are not always at Whistler. Many of the new condos come equipped with a hot tub in the backyard.

    So here'sall you have to do: Get drunk at one of the local nightlife spots, find a new condominium complex with said hot tubs, find one that is unlocked, hop in and enjoy!

    You get the thrill of sneaking around and are rewarded by a nice soothing hot tub, which after wandering around looking for said hot tub is pure bliss! One word of caution if you find one that is unlocked and seems safe...DONT switch tubs! We did and ended up running naked down the street...good times good times.

    The Village of course!

    by Jyrki Written Sep 23, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A trip to Whistler isn't complete with at least a stroll through the Village. Despite the cold temperatures in the winter Whistler Village really has a very cozy feeling to it! Walk around at night with your sweetie, or even by yourself, the village is well lit and there are often lots of people around. There are lots of shops including many many ski and board shops if you are inclined to drop some coin on the latest gear. Being the tourist resort that it is prices are high and don't expect too many bargains.

    If you want a souvenir but aren't budgeted for it there are often promotional events going on in the village near the gondolas and you can usually get a free keychain or if you're lucky, a t-shirt. It may not be much but it's something!We even found one tent where they were letting us make free long distance calls! Phone home and tell your friends about your Whistler experience!

    Don't like snow? Hit the trails.

    by Jyrki Written Sep 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The summer alternative to snowboarding/skiing is another favourite B.C. pasttime: Mountain Biking. Avid mountain bikers who want a change from the challenging but perhaps repetitive North Shore trails escape to Whistler during the summer to hit the trails and "Huck It large!"

    They also sport the Whistler Mountain Bike Park for you tricksters out there. Careful though one biker buddy of mine has dubbed it the "Whistler Mountain Trauma Park" after many a fall and broken bone.

    Hit the Slopes of course!

    by Jyrki Updated Sep 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you've come up during ski/biard season you are most definately coming up to ski or snowboard. Well you've come to the right place. The best thing about Whislter is that there are 2 mountains! Whistler mtn and Blackcomb mtn!

    I like Blackcomb because it is a little more snowboard friendly. I am a beginner so I don't do any of that crazy back country stuff. Jersey Ceam is my favourite run area on Blackcomb.

    If you're new and have trouble keeping speed stay away from the long, flat run leading to the 7th heaven express.

    On Whistler I like emerald green, it's fun, easy and for those who are daring enough there is a small trick park and you can test yourself on jumps, rails and boxes!

    One day...

    The 'Westcoaster', a concrete luge

    by rmdw Written Jul 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Even in the summer, there's lots to do here ... especially for kids! They have this "ride", which is sort of like an outdoor gravity-powered roller-coaster. There's also a miniature golf course, wall climbing, and other fun activities.

    Head to the Village

    by duanestorey Written Apr 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you're looking for some nightlife, or a place to shop, then head down to the Village in Whistler. The Village is a european looking outdoor mall, complete with shops, restaurants, nightclubs, pubs and coffeeshops. While it's a tad pricey in the Village, the atmosphere and the people make it worthwhile..

    Go skiing or snowboarding

    by duanestorey Written Apr 10, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, Whistler is one of the best ski resorts in the world, so if you make it up here, make sure you go skiing or snowboarding.. Lift tickets will run you around $65 CAD a day I believe, but it's well worth it.

    GET YOUR BUTT UP TO WHISTLER

    by Jmill42 Updated Nov 23, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hands down the best resort I have ever been to is Whistler! It is world famous for its annual snowfall, which leads to some of the best skiing on the planet. With only a few hours drive along the coastline north of Vancouver, you are doing yourself a HUGE injustice by not going to Whistler. I have been to every big resort and most smaller ones in the Western US, and this was the best out of all of them.
