While the Whistler Gondola has shut for the season, the Blackcomb Gondola and the Peak 2 Peak continue to run until October 15th. This provides an excellent opportunity to get into the alpine to sightsee and hike. The colors during this time of year are magnificent and well worth the trek. You might even get a light dusting of snow to add to the enchantment.
Fall has some of the best mountain biking of the whole entire year. The line-ups have decreased in the Whistler Mountain Bike Park and the dirt is prime! What’s more, you can ride in the park until October 15th and often, much later in the surrounding valley. Be sure to dress for the weather, it’s not uncommon to get a little bit muddy while enjoying autumn mountain biking.
During the fall, many of the local restaurants put on dining deals. This offers a chance to try some world class menus at a fraction of the cost. You can find savings on everything from multi-course meals to pizza. It’s advised to call ahead and either reserve or confirm that the deal is available. The deals are very popular with locals and visitors alike!
