Whistler Visitor Centre Staff Tips for Winter 2013

Locals TipWith WhistlerBlackcomb having installed two NEW chairlifts you must ride one if not both this winter. Hit up the new Crystal Ridge Express and explore nicely groomed intermediate runs such as 'Rock'n'Roll' and beautiful gladed tree runs like 'In The Spirit'. When its time for re-fueling I suggest you stop by the Crystal Hut for a spectacular view of the valley accompanied by a fully loaded waffle. To share or not to share?
- Debbie, Visitor Centre Agent

Locals TipSpend a fun-filled day in nature at Whistler Olympic Park where you can cross-country ski, try Biathlon, snow-shoe or toboggan and enjoy a healthy lunch at the Brandywine Cafe. If you book a package a shuttle can pick you up at various hotels in Whistler at around 9:00 AM and bring you back to the Village by 4:00 PM. Or spend Wednesday evenings there (an extra shuttle leaves the Village at around 5:00 PM) - cheese fondue is on the menu Wednesday nights! The Callaghan Valley is definitely my favorite winter wonderland. - Janice, Visitor Centre Agent

Locals TipFor a great ski day head up to 7th Heaven on Blackcomb Mountain and get fresh powder from the night before. Once lunch time hits you can head down to the Glacier Creek Lodge for a quick bite. Then jump on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola to go to Whistler Mountain and enjoy the views! To end your great day head down the famous Dave Murray Downhill and relax with après at Dusty’s Bar and Grill in Creekside.
- Carmen, Visitor Centre Agent

The Whistler Golf Course cart trail is now open to the public for walking. Dogs are allowed on leash only - this is strictly enforced. - Renee, Visitor Centre Agent
