What travellers are saying
- Points to consider:
- even if you book online, you still need to collect your tickets from the ticket office at the Upper Village.
- the journey up is from the Blackcomb Gondola (which is about a 10-15 minute walk from the Village Stroll) due to construction at the Upper Village.
- your ticket allows you one journey up and one down and as many gondolas (including the Peak 2 Peak) and chairlifts in-between.
- You will be made aware whether lightning is forecast when picking up your tickets. There is also a sign at the Blackcomb Gondola.
The views up / down / across are breath-taking. We took the Top of the World chairlift up to the Skybridge and although the clouds did come in initially, once they had moved on, the views were fabulous.
The skybridge does wobble when you cross especially if lots of people on. The chairlift up / down to the Skybridge is exhilarating.
We bought our lunch in Whistler and took it up with us.
For anyone visiting Whistler for the first time (like us), it is definitely one for the itinerary. Well worth the money spent ($189, £114 for two).Written November 10, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We had an amazing experience going down the fastest track in the world.
All of the staff were extremely helpful and friendly and a special shout out to Lyndon hi piloted us down and then also casually popped out his Olympic bronze medal for my son to wear in the official photograph.
Also a special note to say that whilst it might seem expensive for a 40 second ride all of the funds go to help the next generation of athletes which is a great way for them to run the facility.Written April 10, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We went on the West circle Rocky Mountain coach tour. Stopping at Kamloops, Hope, Jasper, Banff and based in Vancouver. The last four days we stayed at the Hinton Hotel in Whistler which was the Olympic venue back in 2010. Overall I love this amazing country.Written September 29, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Less than 10 minutes drive from Whistler Village, it’s extremely convenient. You can enjoy the lovely trail and beach. It is one of the four lakes in Whistler. Remember, the main road to the lake is closed. Cars cannot enter. You need to walk or take a bike. This journey was still memorable. It is suitable to family with young kids too. There are free shuttle buses to Lost Lake from main village. In summer, we luckily came across the great migration of precious toad of British Columbia. Nice experience.Written July 29, 2023
- Stopped by here on our way to Whistler. Very easy walk on the way to the falls, great viewing area and a breathtaking view.
We went on to do one of the further hikes to Whistler bungee bridge - a great walk that took no longer than an hour each way with several good view points of the lake and river. Highly recommended if you’re passing by!Written September 10, 2023
- It was like being in a painting. Absolutely beautiful. The first lake is so accesible that my 2 year old was able to walk with us comfortably.Written September 24, 2023
- Tour given by member was thought provoking as she shared her experiences as a person who strives to remain connected to her ancestral land and rituals. Decimation of her people by smallpox and then government interventions has left scars on the community and has torn apart her own family.Written October 6, 2023
- Amazing day! We booked a 3 run taster pass based on our fitness which was the perfect number for us and a half day bike rental that came with full face helmet, gloves and elbow and knee pads. Everyone was so friendly and helpful with getting on to the gondolas and making sure we knew where we were going. The trails themselves are so well maintained, easily signposted and a huge variety for all abilities. Can't recommend enough! There's plenty of places to grab a drink in between runs and great atmosphere all round. The queue for the gondola goes down really quickly and you get to see other trails as you head up the mountain.
We rode the green trails which are equivalent to an easy blue in the UK but a lot more fun, so would recommend having some experience of mountain/downhill biking, and make sure you know the etiquette of being on the mountain, more for your own safety and that of others using the trails. But you'll see people of all ages and abilities up there so don't be put off!Written September 28, 2022
- We were absolutely astounded by the work of artist-in-residence Manabu Ikeda. We almost left Whistler without stopping at the museum, but fortunately we made the last-minute decision to check it out. We are so glad we did!
If you are in town before Ikeda-san's exhibit ends in October, make the time to go. It is like nothing else you have ever seen. You can also watch him working in his studio on the weekends. Check the schedule for specific times. We had the good fortune to meet him, and it is something we will always remember.
The museum also has a great collection of BC artists' works. We enjoyed that as well, and will be sure to return on our next trip to Whistler. This was our first and we had no idea what a great museum this is.Written July 22, 2023
- The easy/better way to get to the train wreck is to turn off Hwy 99 at Cheakamus Lake Rd then go right on Legacy Way and turn right onto Janes Lake Rd to either parking lot. Go to sign for Train wreck follow trail & sign. Go over suspension bridge and your there.Written August 30, 2023
- Loved all aspects of this trail as a hiker and runner.
However one tiny Downsideto tranquility is the deluge of bikes. Fast moving electric bikes, crazy youths on mountain bikes and unsteady tourists cycling for first time in their lives.
All of the above, going too fast, churning up dust, driving crazy and not being respectful to other cyclists and walkers.
To avoid the deluge, go out early. Running at 0630 am no cyclist at all, walking after 10am they seem to come from every direction down from varòus tracks taking out less able walkers.Written June 12, 2023
- Nice and has a beautiful view. The bridge feels secure and steady. You get to have the opportunity to see unique views of the mountains and lakes.Written September 23, 2023
- The wide, pedestrian-only streets and well placed parking and terrific shopping and dining options are terrific. Whistler may be our new favorite Rocky Mountain resort town.Written August 24, 2023
- Log fireplace, private desks, many powerpoints, friendly librarians, amazing selection of books, CD's, games and more! They even allow you to eat your lunch where you are sitting.Written January 25, 2023
- We did the half-hike (to the lake and back) on a beautiful sunny, cool day. We did the detour to the river (5 mins) and it was definitely worth it! The hike took us about 3.5 hours in total and we're not in the best shape! The views of the lake were stunning and it was great to get to sit by the shore and take in the views at our leisure. Highly recommend!Written October 1, 2023
