Conquer Whistler-Blackcomb in both seasons

Whistler Blackcomb is a world-renowned winter playground, offering skiing, snowboarding, heli skiing, snowcat rides, dog sledding, snowshoeing… the list goes on. But, the secret is out. There’s more than 8,000 acres of terrain and it isn’t just for use in winter. Summer adventure activities are just as popular for Canadians, and the Aussies are catching on. Go mountain biking, hiking, even zip lining, surrounded by some of the world’s most stunning scenery.

Horse riding

Canadians have cowboys too you know! Whether you want to hop on for a short trail ride or head out for a few days camping and riding through the wilderness, you don’t want to miss out on the chance to check out a dude ranch. One of the most famous guest/dude ranches is Sundance Guest Ranch, located a four-and-a-half hour drive northeast of Vancouver. Kids’ programmes, country DJ concerts, bars, restaurants and thousands of acres to explore with the more than 100 horses onsite will keep you occupied.
