3-Day Sustainable Summer Stay in Whistler

Travelling intentionally isn’t easy. It means slowing down, considering your impact, exploring the lesser known and making connections with the people in the places you go. Whistler is the perfect place to do just that and there isn’t an ounce of adventure or good summer vibes that need to be sacrificed in the process.

This summer, plan a Whistler trip that allows you to avoid peak periods and gets you exploring the peaks, trails, and water in a way that is sensitive to the spectacular, mountain environment. Then, meet some local businesses who’ve got offerings designed to make you feel good about how you spend your time here.

Here’s a three-day itinerary designed with sustainable travel top of mind.

Pan Pacific Whistler Mountainside, BC Ale Trail, Sip & Stay Package:

This fall is the perfect time to visit our all-suite hotels in Whistler and experience an outstanding craft brewery on BC’s Sea to Sky Ale Trail.  There are 220+ craft breweries on 21 Ale Trails throughout stunning, super natural British Columbia, and we wanted to partner with one of our faves here in Whistler, Coast Mountain Brewing.

Enjoy savings on your spacious all-suite accommodation, complimentary valet parking ($38 value), and one $25 gift card for Coast Mountain so you can visit the micro-brewery and do some tasting or pick up a selection of craft beer to take home.

Insider’s Guide: Whistler’s Summer Beers

The word for the 2023 summer beer scene? Crisp. With summer’s arrival, it’s time to switch to those refreshing, fruity and easy-drinking sips. With a host of craft breweries throughout the Sea to Sky, and a thirsty, outdoor-loving community, there’s no better time to grab your friends and visit a tasting room. But the question is, what to try first?

To find out, we chatted with Kevin Winter, Co-Founder and Brewer at Coast Mountain Brewing; Jennie Kwasnecha, General Manager at Whistler Brewing Company; and Will Miller, Owner of Beer Farmers, about their top picks for Whistler’s summer beers, and most importantly, where you can get them. Combined with reviews from a few locals, we’ve taken the guesswork out of what to drink this summer.

The Local’s List April, 2023

Wahoo, spring skiing and riding! With fresh corduroy in the morning, buttery groomers in the afternoon and the potential for a few late-season powder dumps, spring skiing is the best. Whistler Blackcomb has one of the longest seasons in North America with Blackcomb Mountain being open until May 22, 2023. However, this does mean that Whistler Mountain closes this month on April 16, as does the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. From April 17 to May 22, Excalibur Gondola runs daily from 10 AM to 4 PM, with the Blackcomb Gondola open on holidays and weekends.

7 Whistler Après Hot Spots

To après or not to après? That’s not really the question. What you really want to know is where. In Whistler, après is heavily embedded in our culture and we are blessed with the ability to ski from Whistler Blackcomb right into the heart of the action.

What’s better than a celebration of an awesome day of skiing and a chance to share anecdotes, all while refuelling and imbibing with your favourite beverage?

A Day in the Life of Pro-Skier Tonje Kvivik

Rockin’ Around the Breweries: Must-Try Whistler Winter Beers

It’s that time of year when we say goodbye to the fruity, hazy beers of summer and welcome the dark, roasted flavours of winter that keep us warm on those cold, frosty nights. Whether you’ve been getting deep and steep in the alpine or simply cruising groomers, one thing’s certainly on the agenda – aprés!



What to do on a fall getaway in Whistler?

It was a summer of endless adventure when we felt the need to soak up the sun’s rays any opportunity we got. But now, as we shift to more temperate weather the pace of life becomes less frenetic, slowing down just a touch. Perhaps just enough for a fall getaway to Whistler?

The Local’s List – May 2022

May in Whistler is a time of transition. The last day for skiing, riding and sightseeing on Blackcomb Mountain is May 23, but at the same time, the Whistler Mountain Bike Park opens on May 13, which means that for ten days this month you can get both sports into one day. It’s also a great time to dine, with many restaurants featuring specials until the end of the month.
