Fall provides comfortable hiking temperatures and opens doors for big day trips without 4am starts to avoid the blazing sun. Some all day hikes that you might enjoy this Fall include: Garibaldi Lake, Wedge Mountain, Rainbow Lake or the Chief just south of Whistler in Squamish. Keep an eye on the weather, as you may know us folks in Whistler are doing our snow dance all Fall long!
ATV Tours: Cruise through the colorful forests this Fall on a 4×4 machine of your choosing. Tours run on both Cougar Mountain and through the Callaghan Valley. The cooler weather and damp trails make riding conditions ideal! Journeying in a 4×4 through our rugged Whistler terrain to a lookout with views of a red, yellow and green valley isn’t such a bad way to spend a Fall day. The vantage points, adrenaline rush and stops along the way will paint a smile on anyone’s face; a memory making expedition that’s for sure! Don’t miss out on experiencing a Fall ATV tour.
