Make memories and keep them forever by snapping a few photos along the way. Now, we don’t want to sound cliche, but you may be overwhelmed by the beauty surrounding you when you’re in Whistler. Instead of spending your time taking in the forests, streams, and mountains from behind the lens, there are a number of iconic photos that you can focus on that will show all your family and friends back home just how much fun you’ve been having. Here is a list of essential photos you just have to take while on vacation in Whistler to capture moments that are truly unique to this mountain town!
If you’ve seen pictures of Whistler, you’ve undoubtedly seen one of the many Inukshuks. The Inukshuk is a native symbol used to identify prominent landmarks and they can also mean welcome, hence seeing one as you enter the village. The most famous of the Whistler Inukshuks is to the right of when you exit the top of Peak Chair. It looks over a vast mountain scenery and makes a picture perfect moment.
The Olympic Rings
As you stroll the village, you will have to stop and take a picture in front of the Whistler Olympic Rings. The Olympic Rings pay homage to Whistler hosting the 2010 Olympics. Another iconic ring moment is next to the Roundhouse and that one even has a podium to stand on!
Peak 2 Peak
Your friends and family will stare in disbelief that you were that high up and traveled that far between mountains. In fact, the Peak 2 Peak holds two world records for the“longest unsupported span between two cable car towers,” and “highest cable car above ground.” Most people take photos similar to the one below but if you are patient, wait for a car that has a glass bottom to get a photo from a different perspective.
Now, the Scandinave Spa doesn’t allow talking let alone phones or cameras, but as you are walking in to escape from the world, take a quick snap. Staring at this photo when your back at work will help transport you into the tranquility you found while vacationing in the mountains!
