Daring. Is It in You?

Daring. Is It in You?

Daring – it’s how we grow. While what it means “to dare” may be different for all of us, if you feel drawn to Whistler, we’re betting you feel its pull. It gets in your bones and beckons to you from beyond the edges of your comfort zone. Whether it’s asking you to drop in on a bigger jump, slide down an Olympic skeleton track head first or step off a 120-foot high zipline platform – daring waits for you in Whistler.

So does the reward.

Dare to push your boundaries on these thrilling Whistler experiences:


  • Level up to that advanced blue or black run you’ve been eyeing, it’s time
  • Finally stomp that kink rail or hit the XL kickers on Blackcomb Mountain
  • Take a trip to the backcountry via snowcat or helicopter, connect with the elements and get in your vertical on terrain that’s all yours
  • Rip across alpine bowls and trail blaze deep in the backcountry on a snowmobile tour for experienced riders

From a Great Height

  • Traverse mountain valleys by zipline, bonus points for doing it upside down
  • Bungee jump off a bridge spanning the icy-blue Cheakamus River
  • Earn your viewpoint by ice climbing up a frozen mountainside

Like an Olympian

  • Grab your crew and jump in a bobsleigh with a professional pilot for an unforgettable ride
  • Reach speeds of up to 100 km/hr flying headfirst down the fastest skeleton track in the world
  • “Ski fast, shoot straight”, challenge your accuracy and speed with biathlon

Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place has clearly stuck. Whistler’s general laid-back lifestyle and immediate access to fun is what’s kept her around. When not hanging out on the Whistler Insider team Nikkey works as a freelance creative for outdoor and wellness brands. Nikkey’s favourite Whistler animal is the marmot- she just wants to pinch those fluffy cheeks! (but never would because she respects wildlife and really likes having her fingers attached to her hands.)
