An Adventure Filled Week in Whistler

Morning:

Enjoy your first day on the mountains skiing or snowboarding. Spend a full day with an instructor that will teach you the basics of these winter sports or help more experienced skiers and snowboarders enhance your skills. Every year Mother Nature blesses Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains with an annual average of 10.22 meters (33.5 feet) of snowfall. Now combine all that glorious and consistent snowfall with more than 8,100 acres of skiable terrain (the most in North America), 200 trails, 12 alpine bowls, 38 lifts and a vibrant and electric pedestrian-only alpine village - and it's easy to see why Whistler is consistently named the number one ski resort in North America.

Discover Whistler's surrounding area with a snowmobile tour. Several options of tours are available from 2 hour introduction tours, 3 hour family tours, or 4.5 hour trail blazer tours. Snowmobiling is a treasured Whistler activity that's fun for everyone including families. You can ride solo or as a passenger (It can be less expensive riding as a passenger). If you aren't a skier or just need a break from the mountain then try snowmobiling. Expect hours of uninterrupted and high-powered snowmobiling fun that can't be compared. It's the best time you'll have all winter!
