When you think of Whistler, all the obvious come to mind- skiing, snow, après, etc. And of course, these activities are incredible; they’re often the reason why so many people visit this world-class resort. What you may not know, is that there are lot’s and we mean lot’s of other things to do while you’re in town. This list provides some alternative activities for when you want to sample a different side of Whistler.
Visit A Brewery
Whistler is home to a number of local breweries just waiting for you to stop by and sample their finely crafted ales. In fact, it’s beginning to be known as a craft brewing hub. A few of the local companies have spots for you to sit back and enjoy a pint while others require a scheduled tour. Regardless, a brewery tour is something you need to add to your list of things to do in Whistler.
A Tasting Tour
Can’t decide what restaurant to eat at? Try a few with a Whistler Tasting Tour. There is an abundance of fantastic restaurants just waiting to be sampled. Pick a tour around the time of day you want to eat, what type of dining you want to experience or even the wine you want to pair your food with!
Sure, jumping off cliffs on skis is rush but what about jumping off a bridge? 160 feet over the glacial fed Cheakamus River to be exact. Whistler Bungee is conveniently located a short drive from Whistler Village and is surrounded by old growth forests. An experience you won’t ever forget.
Try Axe Throwing
Forged Axe Throwing is new to the Whistler scene and is proving to be a huge hit. Test your aim for a solo evening of stress relief, or with a group event lasting about two hours. No need for prior skills and you are guaranteed a good time and empowering experience! You might even walk away with a new hobby.
Escape rooms have become increasingly popular in recent years as an alternative challenging activity.
