Skiing & Snowboarding

But just because summer has arrived, doesn't mean that skiing and snowboarding are over. Blackcomb Mountain now boasts one of the longest ski seasons in North America, staying open until mid summer, conditions permitting.

Mountain Biking & Horseback Riding

You'll find some of the best mountain biking anywhere, here in Whistler

For the Mountain Biking (Contact Us if you are interested in a guided tour or heli-tour) enthusiast, Whistler hosts a number of trails to test any level of rider (logging has been a major part of this valley's history and those old roads go EVERYWHERE). We do have bike rentals available from the lodge. If you prefer real horsepower to steel (or titanium, aluminum, etc.) why not go Horseback Riding in the Whistler or Pemberton Valley. A great choice for bike rentals is Whistler Sports

Water Activites

Kayaking in Whistler

If you want to get a little (or a lot) wet, this resort hosts a number of water related activities and sports. Including spectacular Lakes and Beaches. Experience the thrill of the shooting through the rapids with one of the rafting or jet boating companies, or rent a canoe or kayak and take a leisurely paddle along the River of Golden Dreams. If fishing is more along your line, find out why people were coming here long before it was a World Famous Resort.

Other Activities

Relax in beautiful Whistler

There are also a number of tours that you can take to experience the Whistler Valley.....from mountain biking the valley to walks along the Valley Trail. Don't miss the opportunity to check out our ATV and Four Wheel drive tours.

Peak to Peak Gondola

The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola travels across the valley between the two, transporting winter skiers and snowboarders and summer hikers and sightseers between Whistler Mountains Roundhouse Lodge to the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain. While the two mountains have been connected at their bases for years and it was possible to ski both in a day, the gondola makes it easy by travelling the 4.4 kilometres (2.73 miles) between the two mountains in just 11 minutes. Its an engineering feat and a world record-breaker: the unsupported cable span between the two middle towers is the worlds longest at 3.024 kilometres (1.88 miles).
