Slide down an ancient glacier!

Your Whistler Glacier Glissading adventure begins with taking the Peak 2 Peak Gondola to the top of the mountain. At the top, you’ll meet your guide and begin hiking up the slope.  Each person in the small group can choose how high they want to go before sliding down the summer snow.

You’ll arrive atop a natural rise in the glacier. Many glissading options exist on the same slope.  You can choose an adventurous slide down or a gentler glissade.

This truly is a must-do mountain summer activity during your visit to Whistler.
