Whistler Blackcomb Summer Operations 2021
Whistler Blackcomb is now open for Summer Operations. In order to provide the utmost safety to their guests, the mountains will begin operating with limited summer activities with plans to expand as it becomes safe to do so.
As of June, the following activities are available on-mountain.
SUMMER SIGHTSEEING & HIKING
The ultimate alpine hiking experience, summer sightseeing has something to offer every level of visitor. Challenge yourself by hiking the Blackcomb Ascent Trails, three interconnected uphill hiking trails that meander through beautiful old-growth coastal rainforest terrain from Whistler’s valley bottom to the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain, or simply hop on either the Whistler Village or Blackcomb Gondolas and be whisked to the top of the mountains.
The view at the top will make your head spin – 360-degree mountain views featuring ancient glaciers, alpine lakes, and beautiful wildflower displays. Explore over 50kms of hiking trails.
Don’t miss out on the multiple record-breaking Peak 2 Peak Gondola spanning the distance between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. This 11 minute long gondola ride is anything from ordinary; the world's highest lift of this type featuring the longest unsupported span and making up 1 part of 3 connecting high-speed gondolas equaling the world's longest continuous lift system. You’ll be treated to amazing mountain vistas as far as the eye can see – check out the glass bottom cabin for an extra special treat!
WHISTLER MOUNTAIN BIKE PARK
The Whistler Mountain Bike Park will open with regular and extended play. There is a bike park option for every rider; start with a free orientation from one of the standby guides at the top of the Fitzsimmons Express or book an Intro to the Park lesson to get you started with the fundamentals. If you’re already a seasoned rider check-in with the expert coaches to bring your riding to the next level. If you decide to go without a guide be sure to review the Orientation Guide prior to your ride to match your ability with the terrain.
Guests are reminded that face coverings will be required in all lift lines and must be worn underneath full-face helmets in these areas as well. There is no drinking or eating permitted in lift lines. Social distancing procedures will be in place.
FOOD & BEVERAGE
If you’ve worked up an appetite hiking or biking then head to The Roundhouse or Rendezvous for on-mountain grab-and-go dining options.
If your legs need a rest and you're looking for a sit-down option then Dusty’s Bar & BBQ and the Garibaldi Lift Company are your go-to options. With seating both inside and guests can either walk up or make a reservation to ensure a spot.
