Spend the summer in the mountains, on the trails, and beside the lakes. Whistler is an awesome spot to vacation – see our top 5 reasons to visit Whistler in the Summer below:

1. The overall experience

Now’s a better time than ever to get out and explore Beautiful British Columbia. Take a breathtaking drive along the Sea-to-Sky Highway to land yourself in Whistler. Whether you enjoy the outdoors or sitting on an outdoor patio, it’s not hard to have fun in Whistler.

2. Exploring the Mountains

Have you taken the Peak-2-Peak Gondola before? It’s one of the best ways to appreciate the mountaintop peaks and valleys. Explore by foot in the alpine trails,

3. Exploring the Lakes

Have you checked all of Whistler’s lakes off your bucket list? Each of Whistler’s lakes comes with their own set of things to enjoy. Check out our blog on exploring all of Whistler’s amazing lakes.

4. The Food

Whistler Village is filled with different spots to eat. Right under the Crystal Lodge lies Beacon Pub & Eatery as well as Basalt Wine & Salumeria. Both spots have outdoor dining located right on the Village Stroll, a perfect spot for enjoying a bite to eat, cocktail, or simply people watch as the sun sets behind the mountains.

5. Explore by Bike

Whistler is known for its extensive trail network and endless spots to explore new trails. Ask our Guest Services Team about bike rentals. The Valley Trail is a great spot to start – a paved path that will take you around the lakes, valley, and golf courses. There’s really no better way to get around than on bike in Whistler. Here at the Crystal, we offer complimentary secure bike storage and bike valet when you bring your own bike to Whistler.
