It's Time For Christmas in Whistler

Whistler Santa

It’s finally Christmas time in Whistler. That magical time of year where the village is covered in snow and bustling with action. From fine foods and drinks to sleigh rides and skiing, the holiday season in Whistler is packed with things for you and the whole family to do on your winter vacation. One of the biggest problems can be choosing something to do with all of the options. Here are just a few of the highlights happening this week.

Fire & Ice Show

Dress warm and treat yourself to a spectacular display put on by Whistler Blackcomb's snow school elite. Whistler’s legendary Fire & Ice Show will be held every Sunday at 6:30 during the winter season at the base of Whistler Mountain. You know what that means, right? There’s a going to be a show on Christmas night! Come watch skiers and boarders jump through fiery hoops after you open your presents in the morning and ski during the day.


The night kicks off when skiers and snowboarders perform a wide array flips, spins and grabs off a custom made ski jump. Ramping up the excitement is the fact that athletes perform these skills while jumping through a ring of fire! Along with the rider's death-defying tricks are; the Whistler fire spinners, a live DJ, and fireworks display at the end of the show.
