Whistler Activity Ideas for the July 15th Weekend
Three activity ideas for your July 15th, 2016 weekend in Whistler:
Explore the Valley Trail Network (Unlimited Time)
Throughout the Whistler Valley, there is a 40-kilometre paved Valley Trail Network. This network of trails offers a great alternative to driving, it passes Whistlers key destinations. Including Rainbow, Lakeside, Alpha Lake, Alta Lake, Lost Lake and Wayside Parks all located on the shores of one of Whistler 5 lakes. It also connects Whistler’s different neighbourhoods, from Function Junction to Creekside, to the Village and Upper Village to Alpine and Emerald. There are no motorized vehicles allowed on the trail, only walking, biking, rollerblading and skateboarding. When on the trail, always keep to the right, share the trail, leash your dogs, and clean up after your dogs.
Whistler Bounce (2 - 3 Hours)
Bounce is Whistler’s Indoor Trampoline Park located in Function Junction. With 21 trampolines, a foam pit, trampoline half pipe, and a Supertramp, bounce has something for every age and skill level. They offer all ages drop in, trampoline lessons, birthday parties, corporate events and more.
Cheakamus Lake Hike (3 - 4 Hours)
Cheakamus Lake is located in the Valley south of Whistler Mountain and is the lake you can see from the top of Symphony Chair. The trail into Cheakamus Lake is an easy trail with barely any elevation gain. You can choose to either bike or hike the trail. It is 3 kilometres (1.86 miles) to the lake and another 4km to the middle of the lake and end of the Lake. Along the way you pass through and amazing ancient cedar forest and you parallel the Cheakamus River. The lake itself is a beautiful turquoise color and from the shores, you get amazing views of distant snow-capped mountains. If you’re looking for a beautiful non-strenuous hike, a few hours of exercise and some fresh air the Cheakamus Lake hike is perfect. The trail head is only 25 minutes south of Whistler, you take the Cheakamus Crossing turn off, across from Function Junction and there is an 8km dirt road to the trailhead. Don’t forget your bathing suit!
