5 Things To Do in Whistler During the Fall
Posted: Wednesday, October 02, 2013
Whistler is a tourist mecca. The resort town has a permanent population of 10,000, rapidly fluctuating over the year with two millions visitors to the area annually for the epic winter snowboarding and summer mountain bikers.
Fall however is an interesting time, the town is quiet as the snow falls slowly get heavier and the town readies for the thousands of incoming winter wanderers. In the fall, these are five must do activities before the winter slopes are upon you.
1. Whistler Bungee Jump
The resort town is full of adrenaline pumping adventures. Completing a bungee jump is one that can be completed any time of the year, in any weather. The 50 foot plummet with Whistler Bungee Jump towards the Glacier fed water will get the heart pumping and another opportunity to tick an item off the bucket list. Departing from the office along Whistler Stroll, hold no fear.
2. Picnic at Lost Lake
With so much adrenaline happening in Whistler, taking a break along the pristine Lost Lake is a great way to unwind. With grassy areas beside the sandy beaches, there is enough room to throw a Frisbee around or take your last chance to build an awesome sand sculpture. With friends and family, Lost Lake is a great way to relax in Whistler during fall.
3. Catch a Movie
With the winter becoming temperamental over fall, there are some days that you do not want to be outside. Located next to the Holiday Inn, the Village 8 Cinema is very affordable and catching one of the latest box office hits is always a great conversation starter.
4. Browse the Art Galleries along Mountain Square
To take in some of the fine arts, showcasing First Nations artwork, sculptures, photography and paintings take a stroll along Mountain Square and take in the culture at four galleries: - Black Tusk Gallery - Fathom Stone Art Gallery - Mark Richards Gallery - Whistler Village Art Gallery
5. Pamper yourself with a Spa
Sometimes you forget to look after yourself. Take a day and enjoy some of the glorious spa treatments. Spas are not only for ladies, guys can enjoy them to! The Aviva Wellness Massage Spa is a great place for men to get use to the concept or they can the 'Mountain Men' facial at Four Seasons Resort.
Whistler is not just a summer and winter town, heaps of places that remain open in the fall. During the fall taking some overdue rest and recreation is a great idea.
