Fall is our second favourite time to be in the mountains (after the winter, of course). Just hearing the word “autumn” makes our old sweaters start feeling more comfy, we start enjoying the smell of rain, the mountainside shines with a golden afternoon glow, and it becomes acceptable to put pumpkin spice on everything.

Here are 13 of our favourite things to do in Whistler in the Autumn:

1. Riding the gondola through 3 seasons in one day


2. Chasing waterfalls

12. Bald eagle watching in Squamish

Technically this one isn’t in Whistler, but Squamish is only a 40 min drive south and this is one our our most popular guest-recommended activities.
