Whistler offers exhilarating outdoor adventures and activities year-round.
Whistler Blackcomb attracts skiers and snowboarders from around the world. The two mountains, together the largest ski area in North America, feature more than 200 marked runs, 37 lifts, 16 alpine bowls and three glaciers.
The resort is also an outstanding venue for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, backcountry skiing, snowmobiling, and guided heli-skiing and cat-skiing.
Spring brings an array of other adventures to the resort. Hike or walk to streaming waterfalls, crystal lakes and rugged backcountry in Whistler mountains and parks, perfect for day trips or overnight camping. Experience gravity-defying, lift-serviced trails at the Whistler Mountain Bike Park – it's North America's largest, and home to the multi-day Kokanee Crankworx mountain bike festival. Canoe, kayak, river raft, swim or windsurf on Whistler's numerous lakes and rivers. Fish in pristine freshwater for steelhead, trout and salmon.
