    Marcel was an incredible ski instructor with such a love of life! Really helped us develop in just one day of ski school. Highly recommend the ski school there.

    We went just after a major snowfall but were able to walk along mostly groomed areas until we ventured on a branch off trail. We made our own trail through all the snow and it was worth it. Absolutely beautiful around the lake and in the deep woods. Dress in good boots or waterproof hiking shoes and you’ll be fine.

    We road most of the trails on our Ebikes in Whistler - they were safe, clean, very well managed and excellent for all activities - up the mountains, around lakes, through single track trails dodging rocks, roots, trees and we had an absolute blast - have to return

    The Brandywine Falls are truly amazing. The scenery is spectacular! It's a very easy walk to the first look-out point! Even on a grey or dreary day, this is still worth a visit

    We had an amazing time on our tour and would 100% recommend this activity to anyone travelling to Whistler. Our guide, Jim, was very knowledgable and it was interesting to learn about bobsleigh, and have the opportunity to walk part of the track before getting in the bobsleigh. I didn't realize how few training facilities existed worldwide and that this facility is the only one currently operational in Canada. It made the experience that much more interesting!

    We also liked that Whistler Sliding Centre is a not-for-profit, and revenues generated from tours help subsidize athletes' training. The tour lasted a little over an hour and our actual bobsleigh ride took about a minute, hitting speeds of 90km/h. You could feel the g-force as we picked up speed, especially around the last few corners. Our guide, Jim, piloted the bobsleigh and also had a GoPro mounted on his helmet, with footage available for purchase after for $25. You can't use your own GoPro, but again with this being a not-for-profit, we didnt mind paying the extra. Overall, a very cool, rare experience that we're so happy we tried out!

    We really enjoyed the forest - moss carpeted, and seeing the train cars strewn through the woods - graffiti and naturalization - what a contrast!

    A wonderful presentation of first nations culture. I found it most interesting and a great insight to their culture and the hardship they had to endure to survive.

    It is very difficult to describe the beauty seen from the suspension bridge and from the triangle platform. The chair lift from the Peak to the Suspension Bridge takes some getting used to...just look straight forward until you have the gumption to look around. It is incredible. The walk down and then up from the chairlift is fairly strenuous but so worth it.

    I particularly enjoyed the Riopele exhibition which I think is there until Feb 2022. Highly recommend.

    We went by here several times. Nice place for a picture. There is a sign that tells of all Olympic medal winners that was relly neat.

    My wife and I took a day trip to the Callaghan Valley from Vancouver. We purchased day passes from the user friendly website. On Monday we left at 8am and arrived around 945am. Drive was easy, traffic was light. Woman running the rental shop was very good. Pleasantly surprised to learn that as grandparents we got the Monday parents discount. ($17 off rentals). Glorious sun filled day. Perfect conditions. Spectacular scenery. All sorts of terrain to choose from. Not crowded at all as we shared to trails with a only few families. We skied for about 4 hours and ate our packed lunch brought from home about half way thru. Returned our rented skis and had an easy sunny drive home. A great day in the snow. Wonderful facility practically in our backyard.

    We walked the Valley Trail South from Whistler Village to Function Junction (about 7 miles / 2hrs) and also North from Whistler Village to the Scandinave Spa (about 2.5 miles / 40 mins). The South-bound stretch was tarmac'd all the way, so wasn't a problem in February whilst wearing Converse (although the unseasonably warm weather undoubtedly helped). The North-bound stretch was mostly tarmac'd but with a short gravel stretch. We did also try to go to Lost Lake from the Village but this is inaccessible to walkers in the winter, which was probably why the snow hadn't been cleared.

    Some great scenery along the way, plus gave you the opportunity to gawp at some lovely houses!

    Signposting was pretty good, although a couple of times I did have to cross-reference the walking route on the downloadable leaflet with Google Maps to make sure.

    Well worth doing if you want a break from skiing/boarding, plus saves the $30 cab ride to Function Junction.

    Want to channel your inner biathlon rifle shooting energy? A Biathlon Rifle Shooting experience at the Whislter Olympic Park will satisfy this desire. We went up on a sunny Sunday to be shown how biathletes shoot their 22 rifles at distant targets. With the demo done, it’s time for you to follow their lead and fire away at the targets. You are given the option of choosing a wide or narrower target. I did pretty well on my first round, then moved to the narrower target…it was more challenging...have to keep your sighting really steady.
    It’s interesting to hear the guide relate of the routine the biathletes go through. Another interesting thing is that the positions visitors shoot from are the one closest to the wind blocking wall. These are the priority ones for the athletes would compete to get, as the ones farther away from the wall would encounter more wind, which can affect the shooting.
    The Biathlon Shooting is done in a social distancing manner. Disc Golf is also offered. The Biathlon experience is offered Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday until August 30th. There is also a winter Biathlon shooting experienced offered.
    After our shooting experience, we hiked around, catching a look at the ski jump set-ups. The big bonus was walking around in the fresh alpine air.
