Whistler is the ideal holiday destination. Surrounded by incredible mountains it’s the ultimate getaway spot. Here’s why Whistler is the perfect place for non-skiers to get a second home and what other winter activities are on offer.

Peak to Peak

Just because you’re not a skier doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Whistler’s spectacular mountain views. Ride the Village Gondola all the way up and view the winter wonderland from the top. On a clear day, you can see for miles in all directions. The Peak to Peak, 436m above the ground and 3 km across, offers views across the Coast Mountains, the Fitzsimmons Valley and Whistler Village. Feeling fancy? Enjoy a meal at Christine’s Restaurant on Blackcomb or Steeps Grill & Wine Bar on Whistler.

Scandenave Spa

Located just outside of Whistler Village experience tranquillity and relaxation at the Scandenave Spa. Enjoy a relaxing massage then spend the day in the serenity of the Scandinavian baths, at the edge of the spruce and cedar forest of Lost Lake Park. A truly unique spa experience, perfect for a snowy winter’s day.

Snowshoe at Lost Lake

Want to explore the winter forests? Lost Lake snowshoe trails are perfect for you. Create your own adventure through the forests on maintained trails and enjoy picturesque views of the lake with the mountains creating a perfect backdrop. Snowshoe hire is available from Lost Lake PassivHaus day lodge for $20.


If you’re looking for an adrenaline-filled activity, ziplining is ideal for all the family. Soar through the trees and experience another side to winter.

Dog Sledding

A great way for you to get outside and enjoy the snow, dog sledding is the perfect activity for any non-skier. Located in the Callaghan Valley, just outside of Whistler, you’ll discover the breathtaking Coast Mountains at their finest while taking a ride with huskies. The ideal Canadian adventure for any dog lover.

Nita Lake Coffee

The perfect afternoon for anyone who wants to get away. You can take a walk along the valley trail, and see the beauty of a frozen lake and then cozy up with a coffee at Nita Lake Lodge. Keep warm by the fire and enjoy views of Nita Lake.
