6 Things To Do In Whistler That Are Better Midweek

1. Fresh Laps. With Nobody Else Around

If you’ve been coming to Whistler for a while, you’ll know by now that midweek is the best time for laid back powder hunting. On the weekends you’re guaranteed to be hustling to beat others to your favourite line, but Monday – Friday there’s no need to rush. Sit back, have a second coffee. The lines will still be there this afternoon

2. Cruising Wide Open Corduroy All By Yourself

Some of the best and steepest runs in Whistler are empty most days midweek. Think about all that fresh corduroy going to waste, just waiting for you to lay down a high-speed carve in the morning sun with nothing on the horizon but sheer glory.

High of -1, low wind, and soft pack groomers.

3. Never Standing In Lift Lines At The Chair

Midweek chair lifts might as well become personal transportation services. There’s nobody ahead of you, nobody behind you, and the lift crews (a fountain of local knowledge) have time to talk to you about their favourite zones and runs.

 

4. Having Spare Time To Try New Things…

When you’re not worrying about standing in line or having to be the first up the hill, you can spend more of your vacation doing new things, like fat biking in the Callaghan Valley.

Bikes can be rented at Comor Sports in Whistler Village or at Whistler Olympic Park in the Callaghan.

5. …Such As The New Whistler Escape Rooms

Escape Whistler is made up of 4 themed puzzle rooms: Lost Tomb, Buried Cabin, Pirate Ship, and the Rabbit Hole. Which ever room you choose, your team of 2 – 6 players has 45 minutes to solve puzzles, riddles, clues, and interactive obstacles to ensure your escape. How far you make it will depend on your group’s ability to solve the challenges laid out for you.

New activities and experiences like Escape Whistler are incredibly popular on weekends and book up quickly.  Booking midweek gives you a better chance of getting the themed room you want and being able to do more than one room back-to-back.

5. Enjoying The Scenic Drive, At Your Pace

The Sea To Sky Highway regularly makes it onto list of the top 10 drives in the world, and the drive to and from Whistler is a huge part of the whole experience. But, when you top-and-tail that with Vancouver and North America’s number one ski resort you’re going to run into traffic on the weekends. If you can be flexible with your plans, the Sea To Sky highway is full of rewards for those who explore it’s twists and turns midweek.
