Things To Do In Whistler This Weekend | February 17 - 19

Every weekend in Whistler is busy one – from skiing to museums there’s something for the whole family. But how do you choose! It can be hard with all the options that Whistler provides. Here are just a few of the highlights for us coming this weekend. Check them out below!

Skiing 2017 Old Growth Trees


Of course, skiing! The mountain has gotten plenty of snow this last month and it’s shredding time. If you’ve never skied in Whistler before it can be a bit hectic, especially if you’re not the best skier to begin with. It can be hard to navigate sometimes and you don’t wanna end up on a black diamond when you were looking for a green run.

So for all you out there looking for the best green runs I suggest you check out this guide to green runs written by legendary Whisterite writer, Feet Banks!

Fire and Ice - Fire Dancer

Fire & Ice Show

This legendary, free outdoor show is held every Sunday at the base of the mountains in Whistler Village. Dress warm, grab yourself a cup of hot chocolate and prepare to be amazed by the live entertainment including ski and snowboard big air displays, fire spinners, live DJs and fireworks display - it's guaranteed fun for the entire family. If you wanna keep the sunday fun day going, head over to the Garibaldi Lift Co. after the show for the notorious Afterburn Party (Adults only after 8 PM).
