What is Your #PerfectWhistlerDay? The Options Are All Around You
It could easily be the latest hashtag from a Whistler marketing campaign. It could be crossing off your bucket list. It could be watching people around you having a great time. The fact is, the perfect Whistler day (or #PerfectWhistlerDay) is as varied as there are snowflakes falling down on the mountain right now. Whether you are a bookworm, more comfortable in Uggs in front of a roaring fire, or a backcountry adventurer, ready to take your skins, shovel and transceiver out to Garibaldi Provincial Park, Whistler has the perfect day for everyone and anyone. Here are a few ideas to get that bucket list started…
The Need for Speed is High on the List?
Well, it all starts with a trip up the Peak Chair and racing down the thigh-burning Peak to Creek run. If that isn’t enough speed for you, then head over to the Whistler Sliding Centre where you can bobsleigh down the icy track like an Olympian at speeds of up to 125 kms per hour! Whew! And don’t forget ziplining – Ziptrek Eco Tours is open all year round and can have you whizzing through the dazzlingly tall cedars in no time!
For Those Who are Middle of the Road
Your perfect day includes the Fresh Tracks breakfast and then mosey on over to the beautiful blue runs in the Crystal Zone on Blackcomb. Swoosh down Ridge Runner, Rock and Roll, and Backstage Pass, and then head back up the Crystal Chair for some mouth-watering waffles at the Crystal Hut! At the end of the day, enjoy a sophisticated cocktail in the well-appointed Mallard Lounge, and listen to the strains of some relaxing live music and vocalists.
And for Those Who Prefer Life in the Slow Lane…
There’s nothing like a little bit of cross country skiing at the Lost Lake Trails, followed by a gourmet dinner at one of Whistler’s many fine dining establishments. La Trattoria, Rim Rock Café, Bearfoot Bistro, or Red Door Bistro have you covered with the best wines, delectable main courses, and imaginatively composed desserts. Those who like to stroll will love Whistler’s top shopping establishments like Can-Ski (home to Bognor ski wear) Patagonia, Helly Hansen, and Peak Performance. Because even if you don’t ski or snowboard, if you’re in Whistler, it is always a good idea to look like you do – especially when après festivities gear up!
Après Works for Everyone – No Matter What their Speed
Of course, the perfect day can be capped off with après ski beverages, and lounge acts throughout the resort – be it in Creekside at Dusty’s or else the Village at one of the many bars that surround the gondolas. The choices are endless.
The perfect day may be different for each and every person, but in Whistler, one thing is for certain: the resort has a perfect itinerary to suit you, morning, noon, and night – no matter which speed you like to travel at!
