2022-05-11
It's not fair to consider Whistler as a one-note city. Sure, the ski town has gained prominence thanks to its many winter sports, but those aren't the only things to expect here. Of course, you probably went here just to have some winter fun, but if you're not into skiing, snowboarding, and the like, it doesn't mean this place isn't for you. There's a lot to do in Whistler such as dipping in a hot spring, playing golf, kayaking, and even swimming, among many others. So even when you only have one day to spend here, your schedule will be jam-packed!

What to Do in a Day in Whistler


Dip in a Hot Spring

Apart from all the skiing, snowboarding, and the like, Whistler is actually quite famous for its hot springs. The town offers both natural and man-made thermal baths, all to help you escape the cold and rejuvenate. In fact, the hot springs here are just so relaxing that you'll likely want to spend the entire day just dipping and soaking. Some places, like the Scandinave Spa Whistler, are so luxurious that you won't mind having to pay a lot just for a dip. Meanwhile, a spot like Meagre Creek is great for when you want to escape the rest of the world.

Play Golf

Golf is a calm and relaxing sport that, weirdly enough, is actually quite common here in Whistler. For a city known for adrenaline-pumping winter sports, playing golf is probably the last thing you can expect here. But in truth, the town is full of them! There are many incredible golf courses throughout the different neighborhoods. Some are so big that you'd spend your entire day in Whistler just playing golf. And you know what? That's not such a bad idea! Especially when you see the scenic views and breathe in the fresh air around you.

Learn All About Squamish Culture

Never forget that the Squamish people are the true residents of British Columbia. Years before foreign settlers 'discovered' the area, this community has lived and prospered here. Whether you're a visitor or a new resident of the town, you'd do well to learn all about them at the Squamish-Lil'wat Cultural Centre. From their history to their culture, this place has everything you'll need to get to know these people a little better. Who knows? After just one visit, you might just get a better sense of what this place is all about!

Swim at The Lost Lake

Speaking of what to do in Whistler when you just want to relax, swimming in the Lost Lake is a great idea too! Although you might have to wait until summer for that. If you consider yourself a daredevil, then, by all means, go swimming during the colder seasons. But if don't want to risk freezing yourself to death, you'll just have to wait for spring or summer to swim at the Lost Lake. By that time, the area would be filled with other fun activities too! There's a summer camp for the little ones, outdoor festivals, and more! What's not to love?
