What to Bring / What to Wear

We recommend you wear clothing that you could get wet, as well as a hat, sunglasses and close-toed footwear that can get wet.


It's always a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket or a warm sweater as the mountain weather can change quickly - even on sunny days! It's also a good idea to pack a towel, a change of clothes, sunscreen and a snack.


Don't forget your camera to capture your adventure! You can store it safely in a provided dry bag when you're not using it.


We ask that you please bring your own reusable water bottle - we're working to reduce plastic waste. Did you know that Whistler has some of the cleanest and freshest tap water in the world? Our alpine-fresh water supply comes from beautiful Rainbow Lake which is fed by ancient glaciers. However, if you require, bottled water is available for purchase at our Village Office.
