The Local’s List: June 2019

The Local’s List: June 2019

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

June in Whistler means we’re welcoming those long, sweet summer days and savouring the last drops of spring. The alpine hiking and biking trails are beginning to clear and the valley is in bloom. It’s time to hunt for waterfalls, chase rainbows and start taking hike and bike adventures to new elevations. As our outdoor activities ramp up, we’re remembering to take care of our bodies and minds at the spa and with yoga, body treatments and more. Join us, won’t you?

You’ll find us:
