Explore the backcountry of Whistler Mountain by snowshoe for an up-close look at this wintry resort's sparkling splendors. Led by a naturalist guide, learn about local wildlife and the mountainous region’s fascinating natural history as you trek across the snow-blanketed hillsides.

Your tour begins with a gondola ride up Whistler Mountain. Marvel at the centuries-old, snow-dusted Douglas firs and red cedars standing guard beneath the lift. When you reach the summit, strap on your snowshoes—this weight-distributing, netted footwear has been used in this area for thousands of years.

Set out over freshly fallen snow, groomed trails, and the serene old-growth forest. As you journey through the snow fields, your enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide describes the animals and plants that call this mountain range home. Keep your eyes peeled for majestic bald eagles soaring above the treeline.

The Natural Mystic tour is perfect for first-timers or trekkers looking for a more leisurely adventure, while the Winter Wonderland tour takes a more vigorous, intermediate route. At the end of each course, kick back and warm up with a trail treat and a hot drink.
