How to Spend 2 Days in Whistler

How to Spend 2 Days in Whistler
Two days in Whistler, British Columbia’s premier ski resort, is plenty of time to explore the area’s stunning mountain scenery and indulge in more relaxing epicurean pursuits as well. Fly over glaciers, take a backcountry tour, go white-water rafting, hit the slopes, and more. Here are a few ways to maximize 48 hours in and around Whistler. 

Day 1: Get to Know Whistler
Morning: See Whistler and its spectacular mountain scenery from above on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, which spans Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. One of the longest gondola runs in the world, the Peak 2 Peak is ideal for general sightseeing, or for accessing prime skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking terrain.

Afternoon: Whistler is surrounded by the glacier-capped Coast Range. See it all by helicopter, soaring above the mountains. Some tours touch down in the backcoutnry, leading you to untouched wilderness for picnics and hiking. Others simply give you the bird’s-eye view—and what a view it is.

Night: Discover Whistler Village’s diverse dining scene, enjoying inventive cocktails, stellar wines, and a wide range of cuisines, from international flavors to well-executed comfort food. Whether you pick a restaurant squarely on the region’s radar for top-notch dining or go with an underrated gem, there’s something for every diner in Whistler.

Day 2: Explore the Great Outdoors
Morning: If you’re visiting in the colder months, you might opt for a snowmobiling tour of the Whistler backcountry. Guides take even inexperienced snowmobilers on exhilarating trips into the winter wonderland. In warm weather, white-water rafting tours get your adrenaline pumping while allowing access to the area’s endless scenery. 

Afternoon: Again, as with most things in Whistler, your activity options depend on the time of year. In summer, don’t miss the Via Ferrata—essentially a high alpine ropes course that traverses the mountains. In winter, you might pick a snowshoeing tour, another way to access remote mountainous terrain with the help of a guide. 

Night: The adventures don’t stop at dinnertime—and again, your options are seasonal. Snowmobile up to Crystal Hut, high above Whistler Village, for a fondue dinner under the stars. Or, in warmer weather, drive your ATV to a scenic spot for an evening salmon bake with a view.
