Access to the Glacier in Summer

In order to access the glacier, skiers and snowboarders must upload on the Wizard and Solar Coaster Express chairs then transfer to a bus which travels along Expressway to the base of the 7th Heaven Express. Once at the top of the 7th Heaven Express, skiers and riders can access the Horstman Glacier. Skiers and snowboarders take the same route to get back down, or can use the ski-out from the glacier to the top of the Solar Coaster as long as snow conditions permit.

Conditions may vary throughout the day, so be prepared. Bring sunscreen, goggles, sunglasses, gloves and a jacket as the weather changes quickly in the alpine.

Please be advised that lift ticket passes for summer glacier skiing and snowboarding are sold through Guest Services at Whistler Blackcomb only. Call 1.800.766.0449 for more information.
