Whistler Summer Recreation
When summer hits Whistler the town takes on a whole new vibe, the days grow longer and the Village begins to feel like one giant summer camp. Skis get traded in for mountain bikes and warm fireplaces give way to patio living.
Whistler Creekside in particular is a great place to spend basking in the Whistler summer. Creekside just happens to be positioned around three of Whistler's best lakes - Alpha Lake, Nita Lake and Alta Lake. Alpha Lake in particular is only an 8 minute walk from the Lodging Ovations properties and features a large grassy picnic area, beach area, swim dock, children's play area, basketball, tennis and volleyball courts and even a dog friendly area. When you get tired of the waterways, simply trade in your trunks for your hiking, golfing or mountain bike gear.
Whistler Summer Fun Comes in All Strengths
Whether you want to relax or kick it up a notch, there's a Whistler summer activity for everyone. Thrill seekers would do well to try out activities such as Whistler Bungee, Whistler Skydiving, rock climbing or river rafting. While visitors looking for a more relaxing weekend might be more inclined spend a day at the Scandinave Spa, a day shopping or take a tour of the Whistler's art galleries.
Whistler Olympic Park is More than Nordic Sport
If you love to be outside, hike or sightsee we always recommend a day trip to Whistler Olympic Park. Nestled in the Callaghan Valley the Park served as the venue for the cross country skiing and ski-jumping events at the 2010 Winter Olympics. The park is located about a 25 minute drive outside of Whistler Creekside. While it may be a bit off the beaten track the area is virtually untouched and offers spectacular views and the chance to catch glimpses of various wildlife. This trip is great place have a picnic or spend the day hiking.
