The blades of a state-of-the-art helicopter whir and thrum above you as you depart from Whistler Heliport, soaring up above the Whistler resort into the backcountry of Whistler and Blackcomb mountains. Admire the rugged and snowcapped peaks—rising up to 9,488 feet (2,892 m), these craggy summits feel like the top of the world.
Look down at the expanse of the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola, peer into mountain valleys flecked with hidden waterfalls, and watch the shadow of the chopper in a glacier-fed lake as you make your way toward Cheakamus Glacier.
For a little extra magic, you can experience the 12,000-year-old Rainbow Glacier with a touch down on the ice for a close-up look. Glacier landings are standard on the BC Experience and Ultimate BC Experience tours. The Ultimate BC Experience extends out to the stunning reaches of Garibaldi Provincial Park before your tour concludes. Read More close

Jump past the club-goers lining up around the block with your VIP access to Tommy Africa's, where you can grab a drink then get down on the dance floor to tunes spun by 1 of Whistler’s best DJs. From there, head to Garibaldi Lift Co. , a cool apres-ski joint with a prime selection of draft beers. Rest your dancing feet over a local brew, then move to the Cinnamon Bear Bar & Grille. Shoot a game of pool, fill up with some pizza, nachos, or other hearty bar food, then head to the mezzanine at Merlin’s in the upper village for a game of darts and another round of libations.
End your evening at Garfinkel's, Whistler's hottest party spot and craziest nightclub, where you can skip by the bouncers and keep your cover charge, then dance the rest of the night away, enjoying table service from friendly servers until the wee hours.
