It's summer and the temperature is soaring right now but in BC, you can still keep cool on this hike! In BC, there are these crazy Whistler snow walls that you can hike along and it's like you're experiencing winter in the summer. These giant, towering snow walls wind like a labyrinth and make for one of the most unique hiking experiences you'll ever try!
You have to check this out ASAP before the walls melt! These crazy snow walls are part of Whistler's signature Peak 2 Peak 360 experience, so if you want to see them in person, you need to get the 360 lift pass. There's a lot more to see on the mountain, but this is one of the most impressive aspects, for sure.
If you can't make it up in time to see the snow walls, then you have to put this experience on your bucket list for next summer.
Whistler is famous for being a winter destination and the site of many of the sports during the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010. Locals know that it's one of the top destinations in the province to check out in the summer. Plus, there's the magical Vallea Lumina experience that you have to see at least once before you die.
Whistler is a hiker's paradise. There are trails everywhere and some of them are truly unique. After you've checked out this incredible trail through the snow walls, there's a trail that will take you to an abandoned ghost town in Whistler and it is worth checking out as well!
You should check out Whistler before the summer ends so you can see these giant snow walls in person! While you're in Whistler, make sure to book a vodka tasting inside the world's coldest ice room to complete the winter in the summer experience.
