Some of the most magical Whistler experiences happen on the outskirts of the Village, deep in the forests that surround the town. These out-of-the-ordinary activities will make you feel like you are worlds away from your everyday life. They’re perfect for families and those who perhaps don’t ski or snowboard. These stand-out activities will help create awesome memories and give you some epic, brag-worthy stories.
Mention the word ice to any skier or snowboarder, and the person will likely shudder and shake as if touched by frozen hands at the start of a massage. The thought of edges sliding uncontrollably through your turn is incredibly frustrating, but that sound — oh, that sound. Ugh!
Over the years, Whistler has developed a reputation for being an escape from reality where couples come not only to have fun but to connect or reconnect on a deeper level. With a bounty of activities available, few can compare to the experience of going to the spa.
Winter is a magical season in Whistler, and not just because it’s home to North America’s leading resort for skiing and snowboarding.
