How to Spend 1 Day in Whistler

How to Spend 1 Day in Whistler

North of Vancouver, Whistler is a compact, year-round outdoor playground. In just a single day, you can ski, snowboard, hike, or mountain bike down Whistler Blackcomb’s world-class runs—nestled among the Coast Range mountains, home to glaciers and alpine lakes—and have time for sightseeing and fine dining. Here’s how to maximize 24 hours in Whistler. 

Morning: Go Peak to Peak

Whistler Blackcomb is Canada’s premier ski resort and one of the largest in North America. Its Peak 2 Peak Gondola connects Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, showcasing the region’s spectacular scenery. The gondola spans about 2 miles (3 kilometers) of fresh mountain air, making it one of the world’s longest. Come in winter and be treated to spectacular snowy scenes; in summer, glide under blue skies and endless panoramas. You might use the gondola to access ski terrain or snowshoeing and hiking trails high on the mountains, or simply to enjoy sightseeing from this lofty perch. 

Afternoon: Choose Your Outdoor Adventure

Whistler is packed with outdoor adventure options. One extremely popular activity is ziplining over white-water rivers and alpine forests. Or get your adrenaline pumping on a helicopter tour of Whistler, which shows off some of the area’s pristine scenery without the challenges of hiking and skiing into the backcountry. In winter, snowmobiling is another top choice: guides lead you along groomed trails perfect for getting a feel for this thrilling sport, no experience required. Of course, you can also get a lift ticket and ski, snowboard, or ride to your heart’s delight.

Night: Enjoy the Dining Scene

The folks at Whistler know a thing or two about great dining. After all, visitors need high-quality fuel for all those outdoor activities. The restaurants clustered in Whistler Village are especially top-notch, with menus incorporating everything from inventive cocktails and regional wines to tapas, sushi, and more. Several tours take you to the best of these restaurants, including some of the more hidden gems, and typically include food and drink. As the night grows later, Whistler keeps the party going with lively bars and pubs that feature music and stand-up comedy.
