Note: While this activity is family friendly, there are some steep climbs, stairs and flashing lights. Tours are self-guided and depart every 20 minutes after sundown.
Hike, climb and scramble up the face of Whistler mountain on this alpine adventure. Using a series of ladders, metal cables and iron rings fused into the rock, Whistler’s Via Ferrata is an incredibly unique experience.
Our group of four took the gondola to the top of Whistler Mountain. We were fitted with harnesses and helmets at Mountain Skills Academy and set off on a 40-minute hike. After slipping our way across tinted-pink snow, we arrived at the first set of ladders. I clipped my carabiner onto the first cable and pulled myself up nervously. I continued to the next ladder, using shelves in the rock to climb when necessary.
