Mountain Top Sightseeing
When you come to Whistler you want to make sure you take in all the sights including the ones 7,000 feet up.
You’ll want to see bears in the wild foraging for berries as their cubs wrestle in the long grass. If you are lucky you will get to see the marmot singing the song of his people and will understand how Whistler got its’ name. You will want to make sure you experience all of the natural beauty of the mountains firsthand so head up the gondolas and try a new hike with some sightseeing from the top of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains.
See Whistler Village from a whole new view while you explore the mountain peaks and see the surrounding lakes, glaciers, and forests. Whistler Blackcomb boasts hiking trails for everyone so grab a map and start exploring, if your looking for short family friendly walks or more advanced hikes you will find it upon the mountain tops.
Complete your day by trying out one of five different restaurants open for on-mountain dining. On Whistler Mountain the Roundhouse Lodge, Steeps Grill & Wine Bar and Harmony Hut are open year round along with Rendezvous Lodge and Horstman Hut on Blackcomb Mountain. Or why not have a picnic with the family and take in the stunning views from one of the many outdoor patios. Be sure to check out the 2010 Olympic and Paralympics Games display that is located inside the Roundhouse Lodge or watch some inspiring alpine videos inside the Samsung Alpine Theatre.
During the summer months you can head up and check out the snowalls. Take the Whistler Gondola up to the Roundhouse and hike over to the Peak Chair. Head up the Peak Chair and walk down Pika's Traverse to see these giant snow walls. It is an easy hike but give yourself 60 to 90 minutes round trip and dont forget to wear the proper hiking shoes and take water.
