The Local’s List: August 2019

The Local’s List: August 2019

Your guide to what’s up, what’s new, and what’s on in Whistler for the month of August. 

August in Whistler is full of dualities, we’re all about hiking high in the alpine and diving deep into the lakes, all about the adrenaline of Crankworx and the zen of Wanderlust. Speaking of events, this month starts off with us celebrating BC Day long weekend which means all kinds of fun programming like free outdoor concerts. Whatever side of Whistler you choose to embrace in August, you can’t go wrong.

You’ll find us:

Getting Outdoors

  • Improving our downhill mountain biking skills with advice from the new Whistler Mountain Bike Park 102 guide
  • Cooling down on and in the water by swimming, paddleboarding, rafting and more
  • Looking for hoary marmots and hanging glaciers on alpine hikes such as Wedgemount Lake
  • Sleeping under the stars at our favourite campgrounds
  • Appreciating the alpine wildflower bloom (respectfully, from the trail)
