The daytime in the winter offers, skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, dog-sledding, sleigh rides. There is also snowmobiles and heli-skiing but these are very expensive but definitely exhilarating alternatives.
There are also cultural activities in which to partake. Such as local museum exhibits, regional historyand ski-related memorabilia. There is also an indoor ice rink at Meadow Park Sports Centre.
In summer there are activities such as golf, boating and fishing on nearby lakes and rivers, hiking and rock climbing, and extensive mountain-bike trails.
The nightlife is most vibrant in winter, particularly around Whistler Village's pedestrianised zone with its myriad bars, restaurants and clubs, mostly energetic 18 to 30s. You will find enough apres-ski to keep you occupied until the early hours. For those who dont fancy the alcohol fueled evenings, there is a cinema.
There are many restaurants in the area, with a choice to suit most pockets. Continental bistros, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Mexican and fast food. Casual cafes and snack bars around both main lift-stations.
