Until the snowmobile was invented, humankind's only hope for winter fun involved sharpening icicles with slightly larger icicles. While away the winter months in exhilarating fashion with today's Groupon: for $133, you get a tandem wilderness adventure snowmobile tour of Whistler's backcountry with Blackcomb Snowmobile (a $267 value). The team of qualified backcountry guides at Blackcomb leads adventurers across the pristine powder and heady heights of Whistler's backcountry aboard their stable of clean, light Bombardier Snowmobiles. Tandem tours allow pairs to take the reins during their 2-hour ride across Blackcomb's sleek maze of daily-groomed trails. A complimentary snack and hot drink warms insides and replenishes the energy burned during lively debates about the possibility of identical snowflakes. Drivers must be at least 16. This Groupon does not cover the $18 insurance fee per person.
Vancouver Water Adventures
Vancouver Water Adventures equips maritime adventurers with wet suits, life jackets, and personal watercraft for exploring the waterways of False Creek and English Bay. The staff stocks a fleet of jet skis, paddleboards, and kayaks, which riders can paddle past beaches and along inlets. In addition to soaking up scenic ocean views and spying on local wildlife, guests can accompany skilled guides on jet ski tours to the area's most impressive sights. Those operating machines must have a valid driver's licence, and all passengers must be at least 6 years old without factoring in alternate theories of relativity.
