With five alpine lakes and numerous parks all within pedalling distance of the Village, the Valley Trail provides days of entertainment and allows you to pedal, paddle and picnic all summer long.

Sea to Sky Trail
The Sea to Sky Trail is a non-motorized, multi-use trail that runs through the Whistler area. While this is an extensive project and some sections of the trail are not yet complete or still under construction, there are several large sections that are ready to ride. When complete, the 180 km trail will connect Sea to Sky communities from D'Arcy to Squamish. To learn more about the project and plan your ride, please see the Ready to Ride Guide.

What bike do I need?
You dont need a fancy bike to ride the Valley Trail. Aside from some sections through Lost Lake, the trail is paved. Hybrid bikes, rigid bikes and mountain bikes are all suitable for moving around, but there are other options for pedalling in Whistler:
The latest biking craze, fat bikes are rigid frames with wider than normal tires that run at very low pressure. They are suitable for cruising the Valley Trail in summer, but they really shine when the snow falls. Many locals use them in winter to ride on the snow along the Valley Trail.
Electric bicycles are a popular ways to see the Village. E-bikes are equipped with a battery pack and motor for assistance with pedalling. The extra power means people can pedal farther and see more in any given day.
With a more upright position than a traditional mountain or hybrid bike, cruisers provide a comfortable way to pedal the relatively flat sections of the Valley Trail. They often come with a basket or rack, which enables easy transportation of picnic items, towels and more. Cruisers can be rented in the Village.
Chariots and Trailers
A chariot can be hooked up to a bike to allow easy transportation of smaller children (and picnic gear). Chariots are also available to rent.
