Glacier Walk

This summer capture the opportunity to take a walk on the glacial snow and ice on the Whistler glacier! Don't miss this unique opportunity to observe a 10,000 - 12,000 year old glacier in retreat.

Outfitted with boots, crampons, and a mountaineering axe you will learn how to travel on a glacier as you head into the mighty Whistler Bowl. Along the way you will hear from your guide about how the last ice age interacted with the terrain to form the beautiful coast mountain ranges.

This popular tour is great for people of all ages and abilities, and is especially fun for families with children 8 years and up.

For families with older children the glacier hike is recommended.

As with all activities in the beautiful Canadian Alpine each day is subject to varying mountain conditions - ask our staff what the mountain has in store for you and your visit!
