Whistler Fall Activities
Whistler Fall Activities
Posted on September 16, 2021
What we love about Whistler is how each season brings a unique adventure to experience in our beautiful BC Coastal Mountains. Whistler is famous for skiing and snow sports in the Winter. In the Summer, Whistler rivals other resorts with epic downhill mountain biking and serene glacier-fed lakes to float on. But our secret season for rest, relaxation, and connecting with nature is during the Fall. To set you up with an amazing Fall Getaway, here at Crystal Lodge Whistler, we have created a guide on how to make your Autumn Vacation in Whistler unforgettable.
For the Foodies
Being a hub for travelers from all over the world, you can imagine that the Whistler restaurant scene is very vast! From Japanese, Mediterranean, and Italian cuisine to fine dining and burgers, it is very rare that you can’t find something to satisfy your appetite. During Autumn in Whistler, there are events and seasonal deals that will have any foodie in awe.
Open your palate and experience unique drink seminars, signature events, chef demonstrations, and delicious dinners. This 25-day celebration of food and drink is a culinary awakening for those that are ready to experience something new.
Shoulder Season Deals
Every Whistler local anticipates Fall as they know that means that the shoulder season deals are back! These deals are set menus ranging from 3-5 course’s that allow you to try the best of what every restaurant has to offer at a set rate.
Biking and Hiking
You won’t find Summer crowds when exploring Whistler this time of year. With the Whistler Bike Park on shorter hours and the trails getting a well-needed watering, biking in Fall is perfect for the trail rider. Cooler temperatures make climbing easier and the views extraordinary with the foliage turning to shades of brown, orange, and red.
Hiking in the Sea to Sky is also a unique experience. The rainforest is greener, the crisp air magnifies nature’s tranquility, and did we also mention how amazing the colours of the leaves are this time of year?!
Scandinave Spa Whistler is the ultimate relaxation experience. The spa is dedicated to the ancient practice of hydrotherapy whilst offering traditional Scandinavian baths in a peaceful and natural environment. Nestled in the cedar forest of Lost Lake Park, you will find yourself at peace as you escape from reality in their silent and technology-free spa.
Family Farm Fun
Take the family to North Arm Farm and enjoy the Sea to Sky’s best family farm experience. Meet the local farm animals and pick the perfect pumpkin! Located a 35-minute drive north of Crystal Lodge, North Arm Farm has an amazing variety of gourds, pumpkins, winter squash as well as organic farm produce and baked goods!
If you find that you have rustled up quite the thirst after picking the perfect pumpkin, we recommend heading over to The Beer Farmers where you will admire the original Miller farm from 1890s as you sip on their 100% locally grown and brewed beer. Their venue is dog-friendly, family-friendly, and has outdoor seating that lets you daydream into the mountains.
Indoor Cultural Experiences
Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre
Connect with Whistler’s Traditional Land Owners and learn about the ways of the land before Whistler Ski Resort. The SLCC has amazing displays sharing meaningful experiences, educating visitors on the distinct Skw̲xw̲ú7mesh and Lílw̓at ways of life.
Audian Art Museum
With unique and evolving exhibitions from all over Canada and the world, the Audain Art Museum showcases the extensive collection of Michael Audain and Yoshiko Karasawa. The museum offers private guided tours, Tuesday Night Talks (TNT) as well as a Fine Dining Art Experience.
Forged Axe Throwing is the most Canadian experience you will have in Whistler! Get together with a bunch of your friends, throw some axes and see who is the best lumberjack. This is a perfect rainy day activity in Whistler for everyone.
