As many of you know, we’ve lived in the Vancouver, BC, Canada area for the past 5 years… 4 years right downtown Vancouver and 1 year on the Beautiful Sunshine Coast about 2 hours from the city.
Since we love to Cruise so much, it’s probably no surprise we chose to live where one of the major Cruise ports in the World resides… Vancouver is home to many Alaska Cruises.
And many of you probably also know just 2 hours away from Vancouver is a very, very popular Ski Resort called “Whistler” (Whistler/Blackcomb is it’s official name) which has grown even more popular since the…
…2010 Vancouver/Whistler Winter Olympic Games took place!
What you may not know though is Whistler is not only a really big winter destination for skiing but it’s an absolutely great place to visit during summertime as well! (Which works out perfectly since that’s when Cruise ships sail to Alaska! :-))
In fact, as we’re not huge skiers (not that we don’t like it, it’s just we grew up in a cold place so we like to avoid cold when we can)…
…we prefer Whistler in the Summer…
…crazy, we know!
What are our favorite things to do in Whistler in the Summer? Good Question!
We really love the ride up to the mountain’s peak on the Gondola, we love dining on a nice balcony overlooking the mountains, we love checking out the hiking and walking trails, and the bike trails too, we really enjoyed the train ride back and forth we did there for one of our visits and our # 1 favorite thing we enjoy in Whistler…
…white water rafting which is definitely a lot of fun!! 🙂
But don’t worry, if those few things above aren’t your cup of tea there’s lots of other things to do in Whistler during the Summer… here’s a great list of the many activities to do in Whistler.
And here’s a few of our personal Whistler pictures from our trips up there:
