Top attractions in Whistler Mountainside - And it's just not only for the skiers!

Whistler is a popular ski resort in Canada and it's in the valley between two magnificent mountains. If you're planning a trip to Whistler, don't miss out on these top attractions.

1

Whistler Blackcomb

The two magnificent mountains of Whistler are the Blackcomb Mountain and the Whistler Mountain. The mountains have some of the best sites for skiing in this continent and have so much more to offer which you cannot cover in a span of the day and that is the reason why visitors spend at least a week on these slopes. If you are looking for a Whistler hotel that has easy access to these mountains you can look at properties like Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside.

Squamish-Lil'wat Cultural Centre (SLCC)

The SLCC is a modern and fascinating museum here. The place has a wide array of displays which include carvings, stories that tell one about the culture and history of these people, weavings and so on. One of the most popular things you can check out in the night is to witness the amazing First Nations Feast and Performance. This usually takes place on Sunday evenings and Tuesday evenings. Your evening will start with traditional dishes that are accompanied by a beautiful performance.

Peak 2 Peak Gondola

This is a gondola ride of your life. The elevated gondola ride goes back and forth between these two popular mountains and covers around 4 1/2 km which is a record-breaking feat. The ride will only take 11 minutes and on a clear day, views are simply sublime. You will see snow-clad mountain tops, dense thick coniferous forests and Alpine lakes. This will be one of the best 11-minute rides of your life.

Mountain biking

Another popular activity out here is mountain biking which comes alive during the summer times in the Whistler village. You will see many mountain bikes being armoured and heading to the Whistler Mountain bike park by chairlift. But that's not it, the region also offers visitors adrenaline-pumped adventures which include things like zip-lining. So even if you head to Whistler in the summer, you are going to have quite a thrilling time.

Whistler Olympic Park

This was a facility that was built especially for the 2010 winter games. This park has now been fashioned to be readily available for cross country skiers. So, this is another mighty treat for the avid skiers and there are many viewpoints along the way that you will absolutely love.

How about going back to your roots when in Whistler? This will involve indulging in some golf in these parts.

They are located in lush green landscapes of conifers, mountain backdrops, and pocket lakes. Well, why wouldn't you want to golf surrounded by these scenic views? Among so many other things, this is another activity you can't deny yourself.
