Skiing & Snowboarding

If you’re visiting Whistler in the winter you’re probably here to do at least a bit of skiing. To help make it easy to get to and from the slopes we offer village center and ski in ski out accommodation options. To further take the guesswork out of booking we arrange lessons and rentals for your whole family. 

Ice Skating

Lacing up some skates for a spin on the ice is a classic winter activity. In the winter Whistler’s Olympic Plaza becomes a winter wonderland with snow sliding, coco, and a big beautiful skating rink. Don’t worry if you don’t own skates, they have rentals right at the rink. Just make sure to dress cosy warm, and don’t forget gloves and good socks.

If you’re looking to try any of these Whistler activities while you’re here give us a call at 1.877.697.7776 and we can help arrange your bookings and answer any questions you might have.
