Where extreme athleticism and natural beauty converge, you find the Sea to Sky Corridor. Located against the backdrop of southwest British Columbia, this lush stretch of land with skyrocketing mountains and crystal-clear lakes winds its way along the Coast Mountain Range and through the quaint communities of Squamish and Whistler before culminating in the fertile Pemberton Valley. The Herculean landscape has not gone unnoticed by sports enthusiasts; be prepared to see adrenaline junkies at every turn.
When summers get really hot in Whistler, don’t sweat it; you can always rise above the heat! Mountains can create complex weather patterns, but as a general rule when elevation increases the air gets colder. If the village is cookin’, just hop on a lift and explore the alpine where temperatures are normally 5-10 degrees Celsius lower than the valley. From sightseeing to hiking and dining, and much more, there is nothing better than the mountains in summer.
As a world-class, year-round resort town there are plenty of reasons to visit Whistler, but in the summertime one of the biggest tourist attractions is something that just came with the territory. Our resident black bears are a celebrated icon of Whistler, and for good reason: the slopes are teeming with them! Whistler and Blackcomb mountains are home to approximately sixty black bears, and that number includes the largest concentration of mother bears in the region.
A popular saying in Whistler is: “It’s not what you do, but what you have time to do!” Whistler’s stunning forests and mountains have diverse biking trails offering something for everyone: whether a casual pedal, a singletrack cross-country adventure or the momentum, thrill and challenge of the Whistler Mountain Bike Park.
Whistler’s awe-inspiring scenery is the backdrop for an exceptional variety of activities. Why don't you try some of these unforgettable Whistler experiences. How about letting a professional photographer take you up the mountain and help capture those memories? How about "Flight-Seeing" in a heli tour? Thrill seekers can shoot down the sliding centre's unfrozen track! Or maybe you want to Zip across the valley or Saddle Up!
Reduce, Recycle, Reuse is a common vernacular these days and a mantra of sorts to many. Being ‘green’ and ‘sustainable’ are important goals in many people’s daily lives as well as in the activities and practices of many industries. So what about the golf industry? What have they done over the years to introduce ‘greener values’ and be more environmentally friendly?
