When you are not ziplining between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain, what else is there in Whistler to do?
Might we suggest the following amazing options:
VISIT THE SQUAMISH AND LIL’WAT CULTURAL CENTRE
Come and experience the rich and unique cultures of the Squamish and Lil'wat people. They take pride in sharing their stories and showing you the beauty of the mountains, rivers, and forests from their perspective. You can take a guided museum tour with one of their friendly Cultural Ambassadors from both the Squamish Nation and Lil'wat Nation. The tours run every hour from 10am to 4pm and are available Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 5pm, closed on Mondays.

TAKE A HIKE
If you're looking for a great hiking experience in Whistler, the High Note Trail on Whistler Mountain is a must-visit spot. It's a favourite among the Ziptrek team! If you're pressed for time, the Half Note Trail is a great shortcut to get a taste of what the High Note Trail has to offer.
As the snow melts, you'll have the opportunity to hike on both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. Short, medium, and long trails with varying difficulty levels, are available. These trails will take you to hidden lakes, open alpine meadows, and breathtaking views of the Coast Mountains.
