Arts and Culture
Whistler’s stunning surroundings have attracted an abundance of artists – each uniquely inspired and eager to introduce their work. Self and guided tours to the artists’ homes are available. Take a self-guided Gallery Tour of Whistler’s galleries ranging from Native to modern art. Maps are provided by the Concierge and galleries are within a few minutes’ walk from Fairmont Chateau Whistler.

Bicycle Built For Two
Start with a picnic lunch from The Chateau’s Portobello Deli. Rent a bike from the Mountain Adventure Centre on the Lower Level. With a map in hand or local guide in the lead, head to one of 5 local lakes. Lost Lake is minutes from The Fairmont Chateau Whistler. Nita Lake, Alpha Lake and Alta Lake stretch out to the south side of the Village and crystal clear glacial Green Lake is found north of The Chateau. Watch overhead as Whistler Air’s brilliant planes glide and pirouette in for a landing on Green Lake. For a heightened level of adventure, explore Whistler Blackcomb’s Mountain Bike Park; high-speed descents, gnarly jumps and beginner cruiser runs.

“Snow” Much Fun
Feel the wind in your face as you cruise down our exhilarating tubing hill. Located in the Base 2 Zone on Blackcomb Mountain, the Coca-Cola Tube Park offers great fun for the young and the young at heart. There's no skill or equipment required - just a sense of adventure and a desire for excitement. Whistler Blackcomb's Coca-Cola Tube Park has eight lanes varying in difficulty from Green to Blue to Black. Lanes are 1,000' and a state-of-the-art conveyor lift makes travelling to the top a breeze.

Pemberton Feast Of The Fields
Hop in your car and head to Pemberton, a farming community 20 minutes North of Whistler. Sturdy’s Farm, provider of The Chateau’s regional ingredients, invites you to get hands-on by picking your own strawberries, raspberries or visiting the seasonal pumpkin patch and cornfield maze.

Walk On The Wild Side
Bald eagle viewing is quickly becoming one of Whistler's most popular activities. Tour buses whisk you 45 minutes south of Whistler to Brackendale - to the world's highest concentration of bald eagles. The best time to take in these birds is from November to February. The birds perch themselves on nearby trees and patiently wait for their next meal - fresh salmon swimming in the Squamish river. Then they swoop in for the catch. An awe-inspiring spectacle for all ages!

Zip-trek – A Wild Ride
Ziptrek Ecotours features thrilling ziplines from mountain to mountain, canopy walks, boardwalks, and eco-nature walks. Having just completed a major expansion, Ziptrek Ecotours now has more than 10 ziplines offered on four distinct tours.  Departing from Whistler Village, a short stroll from Fairmont Chateau Whistler resort, a 10-minute shuttle ride will take you from hustle and bustle to pristine wilderness.  Your Whistler experience will soar to new heights.
