I was surprised at how many activities I, along with six other Destination Experts, tried on our tour of Whistler. I didn’t think I’d be skiing, zip lining and swimming all in one week, especially in May!
The skiing was great. We toured Blackcomb Mountain and it proved to have an abundance of terrain for every ability level. The guides were extremely passionate and the views could not get much better. I was one of many who had doubts that we would be experiencing snow in May, but once the clouds cleared and the fog settled there was a lovely layer of fresh powder all around.
After tiring our legs out on the mountain we gave zip lining a try. Zoom Zip Lines was my first encounter with a harness balanced precariously on a length of cable 400’ above the ground. Flying across a canyon over 1500’ in length with a 200’ elevation drop was enough to toss my stomach into my throat. There are five lines altogether and the excursion takes 2.5 hours total with free shuttle service so the trip is hassle free. I’d highly recommend this activity to everyone visiting Whistler Blackcomb!
