Trip Advisor Whistler Guide — Expand Your Travel Resources
Expand Your Trip to Whistler
Looking for new ways to decide what to do and see in Whistler? It makes sense, considering that Whistler is not only the number one ski resort in North America, it is also the largest.
Especially after the 2010 Olympics, Whistler is no longer simply a ski resort. It is a true, 4-season resort with the world's largest downhill bike park, the longest zipline in the world, bungee jumping all-year round, as well as excellent food, drink, shopping and more.
You can go on a horse-drawn carriage, take in some world-class golf, cross country ski, go outdoor ice skating, or indoor rock climbing.
If it's more your speed, try hiking, tubing, or a game of shinny on a frozen lake.
The point is, there is a lot to choose from. And all that choice can be daunting.
Trip Advisor to the Rescue
Trip Advisor commissions guides to certain locations, and of course, Whistler is included. These are user rated, too, so you can see right away if a guide has hit the mark with the majority of users. This one, by Mel C., gives an excellent overview of things to do in Whistler, with great insider tips and notes that will make each activity that much more seamless.
From a guide to the Whistler Bike Park, to the Tube Park, Mel notes how long to expect to spend at each spot, what to bring, and what to expect.
A few of the tips are pretty obvious, but others are really helpful. Mel advises, for example, to make sure to take the time and effort to go to the top of the glacier, using the T-bars to enjoy the spectacular view. That is excellent advice, and I am not sure I have ever seen anyone advise that before. Definitely. Take the time to enjoy the full view in whatever season you choose to visit.
Spring — a Great Time to Try Something New
Spring is a great time to try something new in Whistler. Of course, we're still knee-deep in powder this March, but the sunny days are a reminder that soon that snow will melt and the bike park will open...
In this season, it's a great time to try new activities. As we move to sunnier days, bungee jumping, ziplining, and even (sooner than you think!) hiking will be great choices. Mel mentions ATV tours, taking the River of Golden Dreams, and, of course, the Peak 2 Peak Gondola as great options.
