Whistler has a lot more to offer than just skiing and snowboarding during the winter. It can be easy to stay inside around the fire, but there’s tons of fun to be had in the great outdoors this winter! Grab a group of friends or family and try ice fishing, snowmobiling, and so much more, here in Whistler.

Ice Fishing

It doesn't matter if you’re a beginner angler or seasoned pro, Whistler offers fishing experiences for everybody. Travel with local guides to rivers, remote alpine lakes, and hidden fishing holes throughout Whistler and the surrounding area. Ice fishing is right up there with curling when you’re talking about genuinely Canadian experiences.

Whistler Helicopter Excursions

Take your skiing or snowboarding to the next level with a helicopter excursions. Fly deep into the Coast Mountains over towering peaks, massive glaciers, hidden lakes, valleys, and stunning ice formations. There are a variety of excursions to choose from, including ice-cave explorations, heli-snowmobiling, and short scenic flights. Running all year-round, there’s never a wrong time to take a helicopter tour in Whistler.


Take the family on a guided sled tour through the snow that they’ll never forget and experience the treasured Canadian pastime of snowmobiling. With tour options to suit all skill levels, you can bring the whole family out for a day of fun in the snow. Never rode a sled before? Don’t worry; your guide will make sure you’ve got the basics before the day begins. Children can try out Mini-Z snowmobiles on a specially designed track for them. Make sure to layer up before you go because it gets cold out there on a sled!


Sleigh Rides

Take the family on an unforgettable sleigh ride through forested trails around Whistler. Snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy a horse-drawn sleigh ride to celebrate the holiday season. The most popular tour takes you onto Blackcomb Mountain with fantastic views of the lights in Whistler Village.

Whistler Blackcomb bubly™ Tube Park

Sliding down over 1000 feet of snow is what we call fun for the whole family. The Tube Park has been a big hit ever since it was introduced by Whistler Blackcomb over a decade ago and for a good reason. With lights at night and seven tube lanes, you can enjoy high speed snow sliding action for a full day! There’s both adult and kid-size tubes, concession stands, fire pits, and music. Everybody is sure to have a blast at the Tube Park.

That’s just a few of the never-ending outdoor activities happening here in Whistler this winter. If you would like to find more things to do in Whistler this holiday season check out our list of upcoming Santa Events in Whistler.
