Plan Your Trip

Take the weekend off to attend the festival and make sure you leave time to explore Whistler:

  • Play a round at one of four incredible golf courses, each with a delightful patio to end the day
  • Try one of Whistler's exciting summer activities (beer tastes better with a dash of adventure)
  • See Whistler from a new perspective with the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, then have beer with a view!
  • Whistler's patios are perfect for people watching - pull up a chair and enjoy a brew
  • Take your appetite to one of Whistler's restaurants for a feast
  • Need to rest? Whistler's lakes, beaches and spas are the answer
