Whistler, British Columbia is one of the best travel destinations in not only Canada but worldwide in the winter.  I am sure you’d love to visit Whistler during the winter.  It’s so beautiful and there are so many fun things to do.

So we want to assist you in your Whistler winter vacation.  We’ll give you tips on where to stay and what to do.

What Is There To Do In Whistler In Winter?

There are a lot of fun things to do in Whistler during winter.  But one of the biggest reasons people visit is the skiing and snowboarding.  There are lots of great skiing and snowboarding opportunities, especially at Whistler Blackcomb.  It is North America’s most extensive ski resort.  It covers over 8,100 acres and has 16 alpine bowls, over 200 trails, and 3 glaciers.  You can ski, snowboard, or snowtube there.  By the way, you can book a premium ski rental package here and rent snowboards here.  You can learn about backcountry skiing with these lessons.

But those aren’t the only fun outdoor activities.  You can enjoy a snowshoeing adventure.  There are beginner to intermediate snowmobile tours or an advanced snowmobile tour. You can zipline over Whistler’s winter wonderland (or see it from a helicopter tour).  There’s a passenger bobsleigh experience and ice fishing.

But Whistler isn’t just a place for outdoor sports in the winter.  There are a lot of great restaurants in the Whistler Village and throughout the Whistler area, so it is a great place for foodies to visit.  You can see for yourself in this four-course dinner tour.

It’s also a great place for those who like to drink – and you can see for yourself in the Whistler Distillery Tour & Tasting Experience in the Function Junction neighborhood.

And finally, for art lovers, you can visit the Audain Art Museum.
