Here at Whistler Dental we can’t help but feel truly blessed about where we live, but the feeling of appreciation is amplified when summer comes to town. Many people come to Whistler for the winter, but they end up falling in love with the summer. It’s something you can really only understand when you experience it first-hand. Located in one of the most picturesque spots in the world, summertime in Whistler comes alive with wildlife, plant-life, social life and more. If you’re new to Whistler or are wondering what makes this place so great in the summertime, here is what we love about summer in Whistler.
The spectacular scenic beauty
Endless mountain ranges with snow-capped glaciers bordered by deep blue skies and thick blankets of forest, all of this makes for a stunning scenic display of nature’s masterpiece. The grandiosity of it all must be experienced in person to be fully appreciated. Here in Whistler we sometimes get complacent about the sheer beauty of the place we call home. Seeing the mountain town through the eyes of the thousands of tourists that come each year is a constant reminder of the spectacular scenic beauty that we are blessed with.
If mountains steel the show in the winter it’s lakes that attract the crowds in the summer. Whistler has five lakes that are easily accessible from the Valley floor plus another handful that are a hike or trek away. If you’re looking for a bustling vibe check out Lost Lake just outside of Whistler Village anytime during the summer. Have a try at wakeboarding or ride a float plane on Green Lake, go for a scenic walk around Nita Lake, or have a barbecue and a picnic at the family friendly Alta Lake.
The event calendar
Whistler’s summer event calendar is jammed packed with festivals, competitions and activities that draw tourists from around the globe. Whistler Half Marathon and Ironman take place in June, followed by Tough Mudder and Wanderlust in July with the popular Crankworx, two weeks of mountain biking action, rounding off the summer event calendar in August.
The activities on offer
There are so many activities to choose from in Whistler during summer. Mountain biking is a huge draw card as the expanding Whistler Bike Park attracts downhill enthusiasts of all levels. The alpine is a hiking mecca in summer and the valley floor makes way for walkers, hikers and bikers alike. Watersports such as stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and more can be enjoyed on one of the many lakes or the River of Golden Dreams. With beautiful sunny weather and nature’s playground at your doorstep the activity options in summer are endless.
Here at Whistler Dental we are proud to call Whistler home. We are passionate about our local community and love to share this special place with visitors from around the world.
