Whistler's Mountain Hike is a great physical test with interesting habitats, great panoramas, and you just might meet a Marmot! We would suggest going one way, and riding the Tram the other way.

Turn west (right) onto Whistlers Road, following it for 2.7 km. You will have to turn left just after the Whistlers Hostel sign before the hostel.

The Whistlers Mountain Hike..

Whistler's hiking trail sign is at the west end of the parking lot. You'll start hiking by entering a narrow path surrounded by dense bush.

Start climbing steeply towards the boulder slide, where the path descends a bit. You will hike, climbing, and at level grades at times passing beneath and then west of the tramway initially. The hiking trail switches back and forth as the grade gets steeper.

Near Whistlers summit, the hiking trail gets very steep. Above the tramway terminal leads to an outstanding panorama. You can even see Mount Robson on a clear day from here, which is over 100km away.

Take your time and enjoy the climb.
