    Summer visit. Amazing views!! There were no waits for the gondolas. We went on a little hike on the Whistler side which was very strenuous in the blistering sun. Take water and snacks if you plan to do this. Watch your step, I tripped over a path marker (1 ft tall) and fell but thank god it wasn't near a cliff!!!

    Beautiful water fall under sunshine. Easy access from the parking lot. It’s only about 5 mins walk, ok for kids or seniors.

    It is a bit surrealistic, seeing wrecked train cars in the middle of the forest, but it is a very popular walk, and with some highly informative signs along the way!

    If you are in whistler, this is a must do! We went to all three lakes for a total hiking time of 3.5 hours (30 minutes at the third lake taking in the view). We DID see bears in the distance, a momma black bear and two cubs, so definitely be mindful of wildlife. Running shoes or hiking shoes are a must! Same with bug spray.

    Beautiful Hike! Your NEED a day pass from BC parks to get access. Great views of the lake! We went in the morning (830am) to avoid the crowds and by the time we were coning back down, the parking lot was full. Great for all skill levels! Bears are in the area, so bear spray doesn't hurt to have! Drive up to the parking lot! Not at the bottom of the dirt road!

    Very nice area to take a stroll. Next to the olympic plaza itself, lots of shops and restaurants give a cosy vibe. Easy to spend a few hours at and breath a bit of history.

    Being able to ride your bike along this network of paved trails, is something we look forward to each and every time we visit. Riding by the various lakes and rivers, stumbling on golf courses and wildlife and not using your car, makes this the only way we like to travel when we are at Whistler. Especially in the summer!

    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.

    We stopped as part of a tour, and learned a little of the history of the area. It's a pretty park with cabins from the original Whistler.

    This was a great experience, however with the prices being quite high, for our family of 14 there was no group rate to help in reducing the cost. Once on the mountain majority all of the eateries were closed....

    This hike is super intense, and if you have short legs definitely bring poles. Many very large steps, and scrambling required. Last km is freaky af don't look down. But the way down is not as scary as you might imagine as you are going up. View at the top is stunning, and seeing the glacier was pretty cool. Don't even look instead the outhouse at the top. Use the woods.

    We were looking for wheelchair accessible walks near Whistler and found and even trail alongside Alta Lake starting at parking lot near Wayside Park. The parking lot is small, but as we went on an overcast day, we managed to find a spot right next to the start of the trail. Good option for those looking for an accessible trail.

    This was worth a walk on a wet day. Short loop with some good view points over the ocean, which was wild on this blowy day. Glad we went for a look.
