THE Winter Side OF WHISTLER
The icy cold weather of winter in the north freezes the lakes and brings nowfall for months on end. While much of the rest of Canada is grumbling about shovelling driveways, Whistler locals and visitors alike
are gleefully checking the forecast and peeking out windows in awe at the bounty
of snowflakes falling on the valley. We wonder: How much snow will fall? Where
should we go tomorrow, and what should we do? With the abundance of white gold
comes an astonishing array of winter activities for every person’s age and ability.
Are you eager to feel the crisp winter wind on your face, doing an activity that
requires little skill and none of your own equipment? Simply head up to Whistler
Blackcomb’s Coca-Cola® Tube Park, located at the Base II Zone on Blackcomb
Mountain. Tubing is one fun activity where you can take the whole family, and slide
down the hill on inflatable tubes together. It’s easily accessed from the Village at no
cost via the Excalibur Gondola. Be sure to wear warm winter clothing, and for your
comfort, a pair of goggles.
