Ditch the Daily Grind: Get More From Your Week in Whistler this Summer
We all get caught up in the daily grind, that whirlwind of to-do lists, schedules and meetings.
For our sanity, we need to step out of the doing zone on a regular basis.
Switching the work week for the ‘Whistler week‘ is a quick and easy way to get the space you need to breathe, reconnect with yourself and loved ones and get perspective on life.
Ready to switch up the everyday for something extraordinary? Let the week begin…
Grab your partner, your friend or the whole crew and make tracks for the mountains. Stop messaging, get some face to face time and let the conversations flow. Switch the boardroom for a patio table, switch the Monday commute for an outdoor adventure together. Time to rediscover your people.
Tuesday: To-Do List
Time to prioritize – what’s really important? How about a long deep sleep, a delicious brunch, take a long walk on the Valley Trail and a session on a patio for après? Or you can also try adding your favourites from our Insider Guides: 10 Ways to get on the Water, Whistler Walks and Hikes, Perfect Spots on the Valley Trail, Unique Things to do in the Alpine.
Wednesday: Washing, Cleaning, Shopping
Time to get the house in order – good for body and soul. Take a long slow stretch at yoga, go forest bathing then pull up for a swim at the park. Peckish after all that activity? Head to the Wednesday Farmers’ Markets to grab a healthy bite to eat and let the kids be kids in the Adventure Zone.
Thursday: Training & Teambuilding
Learn something new and useful – take a new trail, try an art workshop, take a photo safari to see the bears, walk the cultural connector and discover the galleries, museums and public art. Then find some live music with a craft beer flight to test the tastebuds and celebrate your new skills. Best shared with the crew.
Friday: Go Freelance
The best thing about weekdays in Whistler? You don’t need a plan. Wake up, wander the village and tap into the energy of whatever’s going on. Go high end or as do-it-yourself as you want.
