The Whistler Half Marathon 
This past weekend the annual Whistler Half Marathon was held in the Lost lake trails. Other than some rain and mud it seems that it was another great success. Many put their trails shoes on and got ready to run, or volunteer keeping the racers on the right track and cheering them on. Events like this are an easy and fun way to volunteer and give back to our amazing community. If you haven’t done it yet, it’s definitely one to jot down in the calendar for next year.

Hike for Health
June 19 the Whistler Health Care Foundation is hosting its first annual “Hike for Health” at Blackcomb mountains Ascent trail. They’ll be fundraising for new equipment at the Whistler Clinic and showing support and thanks to all our amazing health care workers. There will be different distance options for the hike, as well as riding the gondola up from the bottom. Click the link below for more information and registration. 

Farmers Market
The amazing Whistler Farmers Market has been moved back to its home, in the Upper Village at the base of Blackcomb. Every Sunday (and long weekend Saturdays) the walking strip from the Fairmont Chateau to Merlins bar is lined with local vendors selling anything from maple taffy to gorgeous ceramics. It’s a super fun weekend activity and a great way to support small local businesses. I definitely suggest trying the snow cones and wood oven pizza, before playing a round of mini golf beside the base of Blackcomb. Click the link below for more info about dates, times, and vendors.

The multiple Burn Ascent trails up Blackcomb mountain are definitely a bucket list item. The trail mainly runs through old growth forest heading upon to the top of the Blackcomb gondola, but of course there’s always the option of downloading halfway up at mid station. Don’t forget to purchase your download lift tickets at Whistler Blackcomb guest services before starting the trek up. Click the link below for more info on the trail.
