Whistler is known for its world class skiing and snowboarding. With over 3,414 acres to explore, it's no wonder that many flock from near and far to adventure in these mountains. But what if winter sports aren't your forte? Well, those activities aren't only what's available to do in the winter months. In fact, Whistler is home to a number of exciting bucket list activities and even more fun ways to enjoy the snow without being on the hill. Here are few of the best Whistler activities other than skiing!
Skip the skis and go right to a sled! A legacy from the 2010 Olympic Games, the Whistler Sliding Centre now offers many sport programs as well as the chance to try Passenger Bobsleigh or Public Skeleton.
