SUMMER ACTIVITIES IN WHISTLER
Whistler may be most famous as a ski resort, but it’s truly a world-class four-season resort where summers prove equally remarkable. Surrounded by the deep forested beauty of the Pacific Coast Mountains, Whistler draws visitors to its hiking and mountain biking trails, championship golf courses, farmers markets and festivals throughout the warmer months and into fall.
A picturesque path takes you down from the Blackcomb Springs Suites to the charming Upper Village, which hosts the Whistler Farmer’s Market on Wednesdays and Sundays from mid-May through early October. Following the path onwards to the Village Centre, you’ll find additional shopping, restaurants, and summertime activities and entertainment. After a long day, hop aboard the complimentary resort shuttle for a ride back to the hotel.
Whistler is a mecca for mountain biking enthusiasts – and it’s not difficult to understand why. An extensive trail network through multiple areas of Whistler gives access to expertly built trails of all levels at no cost to the rider. The Whistler Mountain Bike Park is world renowned, and with options ranging from the Bike Park 101 beginner course to the Top of the World trail for advanced riders, there’s something for everyone.
The biking season in Whistler culminates with the Crankworx Festival in August with professional riders competing, world-class events and plenty of entertainment for all.
Whistler is home to four incredible championship golf courses:
- Chateau Whistler Golf Course
- Big Sky Golf Pemberton BC (20-minute drive north of Whistler)
- Nicklaus North Golf Course by Jack Nicklaus
- Whistler Golf Club
Each deliver breathtaking mountain views, while putting your golf game to the test!
For the little ones, or those big kids at heart, make sure to stop by the mini golf course on your way down Blackcomb Mountain to the Upper Village. It’s only a short walk from the hotel, and positioned in front of Milestones Restaurant.
