What to Expect

Take a guided hike to the glacier snow and ice atop Whistler Mountain on this guided, 2-hour, interpretive walking tour. <br><br>Take in the natural landscape sculpted by glacier ice. See the summer snow and travel back in time to 10,000 years ago to learn about the formation of the Whistler Glacier and have a chance to play on the ice and snow. <br><br>Suitable for ages 8 and up.



After taking the Whistler Village Gondola up the mountain the tour starts at the mountaintop office where the guide gives the guests their gear. You then start hiking to the base of the Whistler Glacier.

The guide gives an interpretive tour with lots of information about local geology, animals, fauna and other interesting notes. Get your hands on the summer snow high above Whistler and enjoy the cooling breezes coming down off the glacier.

This is a great place to take breath-taking photos.
