Summer operations at Whistler Blackcomb kick off THIS WEEKEND! We’re thrilled to welcome guests from the Sea to Sky Corridor, Lower Mainland, across Canada, the U.S. and around the world for another summer of incomparable mountain adventure experiences. 


The fun kicks off today with the opening of Whistler Mountain Bike Park (WMBP) for its 25th anniversary season. This summer, we’re looking back on the history of WMBP through our #ProgressIsThePurpose campaign and encourage guests to join in using this hashtag when sharing content on social media. The anniversary will also bring many exciting surprises and activations throughout the summer – stay tuned for more information. 

New this year, the freshly upgraded Fitzsimmons Express chairlift boasts the capability of transporting riders and bikes on the same chair, eliminating the need to use separate carriers as done in previous years. This increase in uphill capacity will be a gamechanger for WMBP guests looking to quickly access the popular Fitz Zone. Additionally, the Gatorade Skills Zone has received two new trails, allowing more opportunity for riders to safely hone their skills. Other highlights include the return of the Phat Wednesday race series, and Crankworx Whistler – one of the world’s largest mountain bike festivals – taking center stage at WMBP from July 19 to 28. 

WMBP Season Passes and single-day lift tickets are available for purchase with early bird pricing available until this Sunday, May 19. Be sure to read our Bike Park Opening Day Trail Update for more information on what to expect this weekend.  


For guests looking for adventure beyond the bike park, there are plenty of other ways to experience the stunning natural beauty of Whistler Blackcomb. The reimagined Summer Alpine Experience (formally the Summer 360 Sightsee Experience), which launches Tuesday, May 21 via Blackcomb Gondola, offers lift-accessed alpine adventures and activities on the mountain with over 50km of hiking and trail running, mountain top dining, sightseeing, special events and more. The world-famous PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, Whistler Village Gondola, and Peak Express with access to Cloudraker Skybridge and Raven’s Eye Lookout will be added June 15. 

Season Passes and single-day lift tickets for this product are on sale now with early-bird pricing available until June 16.  


On top of these signature activities, we’re thrilled to bring back a variety of on-mountain activities the whole family is sure to enjoy:  

  • Bear Viewing Tours: Did you know 50 black bears and cubs reside on Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains? They have adapted to feeding, mating, and hibernating within ski area habitats. This is the only population of black bears in B.C. that has been studied for over two decades! Come view them from a safe distance on one of our private bear viewing tours. Bookings are available now! 
  • Mountain Top Summer Feast: Join us every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening at the Roundhouse Lodge from June 21 to September 1 on Whistler Mountain for an incredible, mountain top dining experience with live music. Enjoy mouthwatering mains, fresh salads and delicious desserts at 1,800m (6,000ft), it’s great for the whole family. 
  • Family Adventure Zone: Head to the Family Adventure Zone at the base of Blackcomb Mountain (Upper Village) for a variety of activities guaranteed to get everyone excited. 
  • Valley Bike Rentals: Perfect for any level of cyclist, choose from a variety of bikes – recreational, cross country, downhill and electric-assisted bikes. Bicycles are one of the best ways for the whole family to enjoy the Whistler Valley. Play in the parks, swim in the lakes, or just take in the views as you pedal on over 40km of paved and single-track trails easily guiding you to Whistler’s best summer spots.
