Of course there’s more to do in Whistler than skiing! Mind you, it’s one of the best places in the world for anyone who is looking to ski, but don’t, even for a minute, think this is a one-trick town. However you love to experience the outdoors, Whistler likely has it for you.
Are you someone that prefers to see nature from the warm side of the window? Maybe you get your fill of the outdoors from seeing the picture on a postcard. If these sound more like you, there’s still so much Whistler has to offer as a place to live.
Slopes Through Warmer Weather
Obviously, skiing and snowboarding are a great way to experience the outdoors, but there’s more than one way to have a relationship with nature. In fact, there are dozens and dozens of ways for someone to do so. Mountain biking is a great example of another popular activity that Whistler is famous for.
While it doesn’t always have as wide of an appeal as its winter counterparts, there’s still a huge community of passionate mountain bikers. For that community, there are few places better than Whistler Mountain Bike Park which has over 70 world-class trails on offer.
If you love to bike outside, but the mountains seem a little too daring for your style, don’t think you can’t have what you love in Whistler. You’ll have options such as the Valley Trail which offers 40 kilometers of trails for you to discover.
If you are one of those people that love nature from a distance, as mentioned, don’t feel like there’s nothing for you in Whistler. Many people can have a deep, yet distant, relationship with nature that’s extremely fulfilling. If you are worried about too much physical effort on your part, you can experience ecotours via a zip line or staff guided canoe.
There’s also those that’ll look at real estate for sale in Whistler and choose their next home purely based on the view it offers. If that sounds like you, don’t think you’re alone in loving Whistler’s nature from a distance.
An Amazing Cultural Experience
Completely outside of nature, there’s still plenty for residents or visitors to love. First, whether we spend time outside or not, we all have to eat. For most of us, at least some of the time, it’s about the experience and not just about sustaining energy. Somewhere many locals love is the Whistler Brewing Company.
Not only did they create the beers that kick started the scene in British Columbia, they also offer tours of their brewery allowing guests to get a glimpse behind the curtain into the fascinating world that is beer crafting.
Beyond the craft beer side of the culinary world, there’s also one of a kind eateries such as La Cantina that mixes an industrial flair with food options so creative they’ll redefine what you picture a taco to be from tofu tacos to tacos served with a Mayan style pulled pork.
