What to do in Whistler Village
There are several high-quality ski gear and outdoor apparel stores in the village’s center. The Great Candy Elevator Shop at 4350 Lorimer Street in the main square, for instance, is excellent for families with children.
The Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, located at 4584 Blackcomb Way in the Upper Village, offers a glimpse into Native culture and an educational experience. The centre includes a First Nations Longhouse, theatre, museum, and art gallery.
The Whistler Museum is a low-cost way to learn about the village’s history. It can be found in the center of town at 4333 Main Street. Admission is by donation, although $5 is often expected (but not guaranteed).
Another popular attraction in Whistler is the Scandinave Spa. It’s a salubrious Nordic-style spa facility at 8010 Mons Road, so not in Whistler Village itself, but close by. In addition to massage treatments, the place has hot pools, cold pools, a sauna, steam room, solarium, and hammocks where you can relax and detox.
Superfly Ziplines is located approximately a 10-minute drive north of Whistler Village. The site has four tracks that take around three hours to complete. The longest is 1.3 kilometres in length, and the fastest reaches speeds of 100 kilometres per hour! Vallea Lumina (a unique light walk experience through the forest), the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, and Whistler Museum are all located in Whistler Village. There is also a Scandinave Spa just outside of the village.
