Whistler's Mountain Arts & Culture
More than just its mountains, Whistler is where creative spirits roam free. The Audain Art Museum presents interesting rotating exhibitions from across the world.

Outdoor Fun in Whistler With Children
Whistler cabin rentals aren’t just for adults – the area is one big playground, after all, meaning kids love it just as much as anyone else. While it’s an excellent place for little ones to find their ski legs, kids' activities here extend far beyond the slopes.
For a more relaxing – and horizontal – winter activity, stop in at the Whistler Outdoor Skating Rink. Afterward, head to Family Apres, a regular event held in the Whistler Olympic Plaza. It's designed to offer all the warmth and fun of a post-skiing atmosphere, but with families in mind; there, you'll find performances, hot drinks, and snacks.
During summer, spend some quality time with your family, and take them swimming and picnicking at the lake. There’s also the Whistler Children’s Festival, which hosts workshops, live theatre, and plenty of other kid-friendly fun.
If, for whatever reason, your kids get tired of the outdoors, take them to the indoor pool or cinema. There’s also an escape room that will surely bring family closer as you put your heads together to solve the puzzle.
Cozy Pubs and Bars in Whistler
As you might expect from such a popular vacation destination, Whistler offers up plenty of evening fun. There are few things more enjoyable than hanging out in Whistler’s cozy pubs and bars.
While the establishments range from relaxed pubs to slightly more upscale cocktail bars, most have a casual outdoorsy vibe, and you’re unlikely to need your best dress clothes for admittance. If you’re a craft beer fan, you’ll find some of BC’s best at Whistler Brewing Company and Coast Mountain Brewing. BC also has some fantastic wines that you'll find served in Whistler.
If your body isn’t too tired from a day of outdoor activity, head to Tommy Africa’s or Garfinkel’s, two nightclubs open for dancing until the early hours.
Skiing and Hiking in Whistler
If you’re looking for outdoor activities, you’ll have found the right place in Whistler. The town is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading outdoor recreation destinations. Here, you’ll find North America’s largest ski resort, and enough summer hiking and biking trails to keep even the most enthusiastic nature lover occupied for years.
Whistler Blackcomb, the area’s main ski resort, boasts some 37 lifts and more than 200 ski runs. While the resort's sheer size might seem intimidating, Whistler Blackcomb isn't just for experienced skiers and snowboarders – there are plenty of beginner-level runs where newbies can feel their way into the sport.
Whereas Whistler’s “winter side” might get a lot of attention, its summer side is pretty spectacular in its own right. Some of North America’s most scenic hiking and biking trails are here, and thrillseekers can take a magnificent ride along one of the region’s zip lines. Golf and wildlife watching are other popular outdoor pursuits.
