Adventure Information

Choose any 2 or 3 of the following adventures to make your own action-packed day!

  1. Via Ferrata is a thrilling sky-high activity (approx. 4 hours) where you grab and step on metal rungs set into the mountainside to allow you to climb up in safety to the peak of Whistler. You can do it!
  2. Sky Walk is an easy hike along the edge of Whistler Mountain with gorgeous views (1-1.5 hours)
  3. Glacier Discovery is a 2 hour hike and interpretive tour to the base of the Whistler Glacier where you learn about the formation of the local mountains and the flora and fauna of Whistler.
  4. Glacier Ascent is a truly Canadian mountaineering adventure. Use glacier axes to hike up the glacier while roped together and enjoy the sights from the ancient glacier.
  5. Glacier Glissading is just plain fun! Hike up and slide down on summer snow. Go as fast or as slow as you want and enjoy being a kid again!
  6. Hike the Half Note trail as your guide shows you the many mountain peaks that surround Whistler and see the quiet side of the mountain where you might encounter pikas, marmots, ravens, and Whiskey Jacks.
