Whistler Glacier Ascent Hike

Mountain Skills Academy Adventures Upper Lynn

Limited time remaining!

What You'll Get


Meet at the Mountain Skills Academy and Adventures mountaintop office 15 minutes before your tour departure time. The ride on the Whistler Gondola from the village takes approximately 30 minutes. The 9am tour departure will take into account the first public load at 10am and the 9am tour guests will meet their guide at the base of the Gondola at 8:45am at the picnic tables.

At the office, meet your guide, sign a waiver, and be outfitted with your glacier travel gear. Next is a walk across either a beautiful alpine snow slope or a breathtaking glacial moraine and wildflower meadow (depending on the time of year and mountain conditions) as you approach the Whistler bowl and glacier. As you look up at the bowl, you will see Whistler Peak.

Along the walk, take advantage of the world-class photo opportunities of the pacific coast mountain ranges. The tour will conclude with a walk back to the mountaintop office.

This truly is a must-do day activity for anyone enjoying the pacific coastal mountains. No experience is necessary on this safe and fun Canadian trek. The tour will cover roughly 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) of mountain terrain and up to 656 feet (200 meters) of glacier hiking and climbing.

Your guide will establish a slow and steady pace throughout the tour. Nevertheless, a moderate level of fitness is recommended. As with all activities in the beautiful Canadian Alpine, each day is subject to varying mountain conditions. Please ask the staff what the mountain has in store for you and your visit.
