Weekend Getaway

A weekend getaway in this Coastal Mountain Range in British Columbia offers an escape from crowds and an opportunity to visit favorite snowshoeing destinations during the day with evenings spent enjoying dinners in the bustling Whistler Village before turning in for a cozy night in a mountain yurt (portable round tent).

Professional local guides will lead the way through the pristine wilderness where snowshoers can enjoy the beauty of nearby destinations like Alexander Falls, Joffre Lakes, and the remarkable Matier Glacier.

This getaway includes two full days of snowshoeing and a visit to the outdoor hot pools at the Scandinave Spa on your last day – the perfect way to rejuvenate body and mind as you melt away sore muscles at the end of your trek.

This weekend getaway is the ideal way to satisfy a chance to get away blended with active outdoor adventure during the colder months.

Even if you’ve never snowshoed, the professional guides will help you learn how a pair of snowshoes is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the quiet beauty of Whistler in the winter.

If you’re not ready to snowshoe, you can always consider a British Columbia hiking trip, or a whistler backpacking weekend getaway. It is definitely a winter destination worth exploring.
