I came across the best article recently about a local Vancouver family that highlighted their Whistler and Vancouver outdoor lifestyle that they attribute to their happy family dynamic!
Yes, of course it’s about the skiing time they enjoy on the hills of Whistler Mountain, but it’s also very much about the time they have to chat together during their transfers to Whistler and their return back to Vancouver. It’s about dialing in to quiet evening family time with board games and books and planning their outdoor adventures for the next day.
In the winter time they embrace the snowy hills of Whistler and in the summer months they hit those Whistler hiking and biking trails hard. They are laying a foundation for their family and Whistler is helping them do that one skiing or biking weekend at a time!

What a grand adventure to head up the Whistler Blackcomb gondolas for a day of hiking, exploring and of course fabulous dining!
The Peak 2 Peak sights are absolutely breathtaking from all angles and even the smallest of children (my 3 year old for example) can handle some of the hikes up top.
A pleasant surprise was the bin of ski poles that people can help themselves to for walking sticks, which the kids go crazy for of course!
There are impressive wood carvings along the trails along with plaques filled with bits of wildlife and plant info, not to mention the endless and absolutely beautiful photo opportunities.
If you are up to take advantage of the whole day and into the evening, it is well worth attending one of the Mountain Top BBQ’s that they do so well over the course of the summer.
Taking place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening at the Roundhouse Lodge on Whistler Mountain, a dining experience is waiting for you at 6000 feet at the top of the Whistler Village Gondola.
This coming Sept 7th, 8th, 9th weekend, the weekend of the GranFondo, is the last weekend of the summer to take in this experience and all it’s delicous fixings!
Ahhh, Whistler..get up there!
Summer time is coming on strong and Whistler Blackcomb has officially opened many of their amazing summer time activities for all to enjoy!
Peak to Peak Sightseeing, Family Adventure Zone, Whistler Blackcomb Mountain Bike Park, Bear viewing and Ecology Tours, and Whistler Blackcomb Glacier skiing and riding are all open for Whistler adventure seekers.
Much of this is available to experience in a day trip to Whistler or a Whistler overnight. Contact us to help you customize the perfect Whistler trip and Whistler transfers to suit you and your group’s transportation and sightseeing needs.
Here are our TOP FOUR Vancouver tours, transfers & sightseeing…
1. Vancouver City Tour
Drive through Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge, Downtown Vancouver shopping (Robson Street), Granville Island (great spot for lunch), or Queen Elizabeth Park (also a great luncheon spot), explore Gas Town and China Town.
2. Langley Wine Tour
Tempt your taste buds with an amazing tour of the Langley wineries. Begin with Township 7 Vineyards, to Glenugie Winery, The Forte Wine Company, and all impressive tour and lunch at Domaine de Chamberton. This one is also great as a Harrison Hot Springs overnighter because then it’s on to Lotusland Vineyard and Mount Lehman Winery before reaching your final hot springs destination. Yah, I know…WOW!
3. Osoyoos and Vancouver Golf Trip
We do trips like this every summer season and people truly love it. This one includes Vancouver golf transfers as well as a trip to Osoyoos and is so worth it!
Begin in Vancouver at one of our local public courses followed by a road trip to Osoyoos to play Fairview Mountain, a perennial ‘must play’ pick by Golf Digest.
On a smaller scale, we can simply provide your group’s roundtrip transfers for your local Vancouver golf game, or we’re a great option for that tucked away Furry Creek.
4. Whistler Sightseeing Daytrip
We’ll take you on a Sea-to-Sky highway adventure for the day! Enjoy some breathtaking viewpoints along the way, take in the wonderous site of Shannon Falls and discover Britannia Beach and the Britannia Beach Mine Museum before continuing on to Whistler Village for a late lunch, shopping, dinner and a relaxing return home. Hopefully we’ll catch a brilliant sunset sky over the coastal mountains on route!
Take your pick of smaller SUV’s, Sprinter Vans, Limo-style minibuses or shuttle buses.
Can’t decide on a tour? Let us bring you along for the ride. We offer custom Vancouver sightseeing and city tours! We can build a day of sightseeing in Vancouver for you and show you what this beautiful west coast city has to offer with our unique Vancouver tours and sightseeing.
