BC Day Long Weekend in Whistler

August 3 – 5, 2024

Canadian Summer Hiking

Access the Alpine

Wildflowers, wildlife, glaciers and lakes hidden high above the treeline - you can find all these and more when you go hiking in the alpine (you can even catch a gondola up to the trails). And there’s more to explore in the valley from lakes to the Valley Trail to golf courses – be sure you plan enough time here to do it all!
