The air is crisp, the leaves are bright and the village is relaxed - this is fall in Whistler.
The hustle-bustle days of summer have passed and the powder hounds of winter have yet to arrive, but we'll let you in on a little secret... this can be the best time of year for a Whistler adventure. Here are our top 5 reasons fall is a favourite time for Ziptrekking through the rainforest:
The quickly changing weather of this season means we are treated to a lot of rainbow viewing. They pop up in unexpected places and give a magical feel to the valley. Have you ever ziplined under a double rainbow? This is your chance.
This time of year is what locals call ‘slow’ season in Whistler which means, lots of deals! You can pick up a free local newspaper (The Pique) and flip through to find all the best restaurant specials. So after you’re done ziplining you can après with a 5 star meal!
Every shade of yellow, orange and red light up and dot the valley. Your eyes will be delighted by the rich warm tones of fall as you zip through the colourful rainforest. Take your time between ziplines to admire the views and breathe in the crisp air.
Nothing makes the Coastal Temperate rainforest come alive like the mist. Watching the fog weave through the treetops and seep through the valley between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains will leave you breathless. If you happen to come on a day when the fog is thick in the valley you'll experience the added thrill of ziplining into the mist!
