September in Whistler
September is a wonderful month to visit Whistler and there is so much going on. There is more sun in the forecast and this is the perfect time of year to experience alpine hiking.
There are many great hikes in the Whistler area including Rainbow Mountain, Wedgemount, Garibaldi Lake and Brandywine Meadows to name a few. The Whistler Village Gondola and Peak to Peak gondola make alpine hiking on Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains more accessible than ever! Some of the favourite trails on Whistler Mountain include High Note and Half Note trails. On Blackcomb Mountain try the Decker Loop trail which offers incredible views of Black Tusk and Overlord Glacier. The wildflowers are in full bloom, so don't forget your camera. After your hike, relax with a cold drink and snacks on the patio of the Roundhouse Lodge or Rendezvous on Blackcomb.
September is also a great time to hit the Whistler Mountain Bike Park. Experience this epic bike park before it closes for the season on October 10th. The bike park is suitable for all tastes and abilities and you will find a great mix of trails.
Other September activities include golf, zip trekking, ATV tours, canoeing, fishing or just relaxing at one of the lakes.
Also head over to the Upper Village on Sunday and Wednesday afternoon for the Whistler's Farmers Market. There is plenty of local organic produce and other delicious goods available at this time of year.
Events this month include free concerts by Kuba Oms and 54-40 at the Whistler Olympic Plaza. The RBC Whistler GranFondo is taking place on Saturday September 10th. This is an epic bike ride not too be missed. Be sure to check out the movie premier of All.I.Can on September 23rd as well as the Whistler Spirit Run on September 24th.
