Blackcomb Sleigh Rides
Posted: Saturday, October 15, 2011
When visiting Whistler this winter, experience a true Canadian winter outdoor adventure with a horse drawn sleigh ride. A sleigh ride is a wonderful winter activity ideal for families, groups and couples. The traditional sleighs are drawn by Percheron draft horses. Experience Whistler's winter wonderland as you sit comfortably in the sleigh with warm blankets. All you will hear is the sound of jingle bells as the sleigh is pulled through the pristine silence of a winter forest.
There are a number of different tours available. One of the most popular tours is the scenic mountain sleigh ride on Blackcomb Mountain. This is a 50-60 minute sleigh ride tour on Blackcomb Mountain complete with hot chocolate, warm blankets and canopies on the sleighs. You will be able to view the amazing lights of Whistler Village and enjoy a short stop at the cabin to warm up by a wood stove and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate.
If you are looking for a unique way to spend the evening and enjoy a sumptuous dinner, then why not experience the sleigh ride and fondue tour. Enjoy a beautiful 30 minute sleigh ride beside Green Lake before returning to the Den Restaurant at Nicklaus North. The restaurant offers stunning views over Green Lake and you will enjoy a four-course gourmet fondue dinner. Dinner includes an appetizer, cheese fondue, Chinois fondue and a signature chocolate fondue for dessert.
Are you looking for a unique and special way to propose to that special person in your life? Spend a romantic evening in Whistler with your own private horse-drawn sleigh ride. This one horse sleigh ride takes place on Blackcomb Mountain. The tour includes a 1 hour sleigh ride with a short stop at the cabin for hot chocolate while you warm up by a crackling wood fire.
