Snowshoeing

The Adventure Group

On this intermediate tour, experience the solitude of freshly fallen snow in the forests and enjoy the views of Whistler Valley below. Your journey begins by riding the gondola up the Mountain to the trailhead. You’ll discover wild birds and animal tracks as you descend, stopping for a hot beverage and trail treat along the way.

What you can expect

Please meet 15-20 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time at one of the following locations:
1) Main TAG office located in Mountain Square right beside the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
2) Fairmont Chateau Whistler The Adventure Group desk – located downstairs near Portobello restaurant

Explore the snowy woods of Whistler, British Columbia from a pair of your very own snowshoes. Snowshoes are a traditional tool; serving the Aboriginal Peoples living in the area for thousands of years. Snowshoes spread out a person’s weight over a large area, allowing you to float on snow. You'll discover old growth forest, awe-inspiring natural views and there is always a chance to catch a glimpse of some wildlife. The trip even starts with a world famous Whistler gondola ride.
