Start your day with a challenging hike to the top of the Blackcomb Gondola! 

This hike allows you to maximize the fitness benefits of a continuous uphill climb, and offers exclusive early-morning access.

Beginning in the Upper Village, the Blackcomb Ascent Trails are three interconnected uphill hiking trails that have been designed to showcase the beauty and diversity of the mountain, while offering an excellent workout. Climb through beautiful old growth coastal rainforest as your interpretive naturalist guide keeps a look-out for black bears and marmots that may be grazing nearby.  

Upon completion, you will have travelled a total of 6.1km with an elevation gain of 1,200 metres. 

Get all the health benefits of an exhilarating uphill hike, then download using the gondola. With your Summer Sightsee lift ticket you can opt to take the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and explore Whistler Mountain on your own before downloading on the Whistler Gondola to the Village.

Learn about Whistler’s unique alpine flora, fauna and geology on a Private Guided Tour.

A Summer Sightsee lift ticket that provides access to the Blackcomb Gondola, PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, Peak Chair and Whistler Gondola is included in all tour prices. Child pricing for 12 years and under.

What to Bring / What to Wear

We recommend you wear comfortable clothing suitable for outdoor exercise and close-toed shoes suitable for hiking.


It's always a good idea to bring a waterproof jacket or an additional layer such as a warm sweater as the mountain weather can change quickly - even on sunny days! It's also a good idea to pack sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, a snack and your camera!


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.
