Ghosts and ghouls be warned, the coastal temperate rainforest has her own formidable creatures that roam the night!
We've had an awesome summer of helping people have fun in Whistler and now we want to see your highlights! Whether you pushed a personal boundary, made memories with the family or went home with a new found love of the outdoors, we want to hear about it.
When deciding to build the largest zipline in Canada and the USA we knew the name needed to be as legendary as the experience. Many ideas were tossed around by the team but we kept gravitating back towards one, The Sasquatch®. What better encapsulates the lore, excitement and west coast culture?
The beaver is an adorable bucked-tooth semiaquatic rodent and Canada’s national animal. They’re the face of our nickel (5 cent coin) for their huge role in our fur trade heritage. But that’s not even the most interesting thing about them.
It's that time of year again, the forest has grown quieter, the pulleys have been maintenanced and the orange helmets are lined up awaiting our fresh faced recruits. The future Ziptrek guides are arriving from all over the world, coming here to dedicate their summer to making sure you have the best time of your life ziplining.
As you can imagine, operating in one of the last stands of old-growth forest in the Whistler Valley means we encounter and (respectfully) operate side-by-side some incredible wildlife. In this feature we'd like to introduce you to the northern spotted owl.
