Winter Wonderland and a Flurry of Activities for Everyone!


No matter what time of the season Whistler is a Winter Wonderland full of fun and excitement for everyone of all ages! When snow is in the forecast the mountains are alive with powder hungry skiers and snowboarders, skiing until it feels like their legs can no longer take them down the slopes. When the sun comes out all of Whistler is outside taking in the 360 degree views of the surrounding mountain peaks while soaking up the sunshine surrounded by snow! 

This year it was like magic, the endless snowfall almost hit a new record for Whistler in December, coating the valley making it postcard perfect. It was the Winter Wonderland everyone visiting Whistler dreams of.

As of December 22, 2012 Whistler had seen more than 500cm of snow with December accounting for 300cm! The one week period between December 13 – 20th had Christmas travellers excited to hit the slopes with 121cm, almost four feet of snow the week before Christmas!

This meant the activity operators were also thrilled and now geared up for a great start to the season! Many activities await those who want to play outside or take a break from the slopes. Other than skiing; locals and guests can take part in Snowmobiling, the Tube Park on Blackcomb, Dog Sled Tours, Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing, Horsedrawn Sleighrides and more. Whatever you are doing take a moment to feel the calm, peaceful and serene feeling of the snow capped trees in our cedar filled coastal rain forest. The air smells cleaner here and the aroma of our great cedar trees make the outdoors feel like magic. Often, it seems as though the world has stopped and nothing else matters when you are in this amazing Winter Wonderland.
