Axe Throwing Is Whistler’s Newest Indoor Sport

There’s nothing more Canadian then putting on your flannel and tossing some axes around with the pals. Luckily, Whistler now has the perfect place for you to practise your tomahawk throwing skills.

Forged Axe Throwing opened it’s doors in Function Junction this year, to become Whistler’s  only indoor axe throwing venue. From people who have never thrown an axe to lumberjacks, Forged offers a chance for all skill levels to give it a go.

Drop by and let some steam off by yourself for a couple hours, or book an axe throwing party and head to Coast Mountain Brewing after to start off a good night in Whistler. Forged Axe Throwing is located a literal axe toss away from Coast Mountain Brewing. 

While axe throwing might conjure the image of burly bearded men in plaid jackets and overalls in your head, it’s actually quite easy. After a few chucks of the hatchet you start to get a hang of the almost relaxing technique. Gently releasing, rather than hurtling it towards the bullseye like a berserker, yields better results. 

Whistler Axe Throwing League

Is friendly axe throwing not enough for you? Then you need to join the Monday Night Locals League at Forged. League Membership grants you some pretty cool perks like 2 free drop-ins, free axe throwing on Sundays from 11am - 3pm, and more.
