Mountain Tours

Join one of our guides for an unforgettable backstage pass to the best skiing and riding at Whistler Blackcomb. Intermediate skiers will be guided to less congested runs from the top, longer laps and breath taking views. For Advanced skiers, it’s like a backstage pass to hidden powder stashes, fabulous tree skiing, and backcountry adventures. Mountain tours are weather and snow dependent.

Cultural Tours

Rain, snow or shine, there is always plenty to explore in Whistler. Learn something new at these incredible Whistler attractions! A variety of 1 hour cultural tours are offered including the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, the Whistler Museum, and the Audain Art Museum. Families welcome.

Whistler Experience Guide Dog

Alta is a black Labrador, and arguably the most popular team member of Fairmont Chateau Whistler! Her days are spent exploring scenic trails with our Whistler Experience Guides and adventure-seeking guests. During her downtime Alta can be found roaming The Chateau, greeting guests and colleagues alike. Alta was trained by Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind, and is proudly owned by Executive Chef Isabel Chung.

Outdoor Adventures

Get away from it all as you trek along coastal rainforest to unique viewpoints of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains on a guided snowshoe to Lost Lake, Rainbow Falls or the Trainwreck. Or, for a unique Canadian experience, glide along skating paths at Whistler Olympic Plaza beneath the twinkle of lights and glowing Olympic rings, right in Whistler Village. It doesn’t get more Canadian than that!

Local Brewery Tours

Beer lovers rejoice! Head down to the cool Whistler neighbourhood, Function Junction, and discover how beer is made! Sip on a flight of locally-crafted beer during a tour of the Whistler Brewery. Must be 19+ years of age.
