Things to do when on an adventure tour in Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort

In Canada's British Columbia province on the Pacific coast lies some of the most spectacular mountain ranges in the world. The Whistler Mountain is one such mountain as it is part of the Fitzsimmons Range of the Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains.

On the foothills of this great mountain is the ever popular Whistler-Blackcomb Ski Resort which is renowned worldwide as an 'A-class' skiing destination. Below are some of the things you can do at the Whistler Blackcomb Ski Resort.

1. Ride the Cable Car

The Peak 2 Peak Gondola on the Whistler Mountain holds the record of having the highest and longest unsupported cable car span in the world. While enjoying the ride, make sure you click away at the surrounding beautiful sights. Trust me, it is a very rare occasion indeed to get a 360-degrees view of such a picture perfect place.

2. Winter Sports

This resort was the host of the 2003 Winter Olympics where it hosted the alpine skiing events such as men's and women's Olympic and Paralympic alpine skiing disciplines of downhill, Super-G, giant slalom, super combined and slalom. Today, the resort sees more than 2 million tourists, most of who are interested in dog sledding, Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, horse-sleigh rides etc.

3. Whistler Mountain Bike Park

This facility is part of the resort and offers bikers a nice place to master their skills as well as compete. If you are into outdoors bike riding, then you will not be disappointed here. Beginners will get to enjoy the smooth and gentle turns as the more experienced riders navigate through steep and twisty trails which features giant jumps, drops, and root-strewn terrain.

4. Family day out at Whistler Blackcomb's Tube Park

If you are travelling with kids, you do not have to worry. You can get the kids to the Whistler Blackcomb's Tube Park, a recreational park where they will have a life of their time.

If you have never been to Whistler, make it your dream to get there. If I was you, I would do one better - add it to my bucket list. It is one of those places that help you make fond memories.
