Adrenaline (and a little relaxation too) is always my goal when I’m up in Whistler, and Whistler certainly delivers! The views alone were adrenaline-inducing, but wait ’til you hear about the activities.
While skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling are certainly the winter adrenaline-deliverers, Whistler offers a large number of summer activities to fire you up. Ziplining, RZRing (what?!), whitewater rafting … even bobsledding (yes, really!).
