It's no secret that once the season changes from summer to fall, every inch of Whistler hums the new autumn tune- the temperature drops, the rain becomes more prevalent and best of all, the mountainside comes alive with new colors. Red, orange and yellow hues start to weave their way through the mountainside, gradually taking over the familiar green of summer. With nature surrounding you all over town, it’s not hard to see the transition but there are a few places that provide a stunning show of Whistler’s fall colors.
Visit David's Tea then sit back on one of the many lounge chairs surrounding Olympic Plaza. Your view will include all the colors of fall intertwined with the beauty of the village.
Take in the stunning landscape of Alta Lake while watching the leaves fall and dance across the water. The tones of autumn can be seen across the lake and into the surrounding mountains. Make sure to dress warm- it can be cool down by the water!
Feel the leaves crunching beneath your feet as you move through the trail system on your way to the lake. The trees all around you will delight your senses with the rich shades brought on by the changing of the seasons.
Fall in the alpine is truly spectacular and is an experience not to miss. The unparalleled view of the valley will let you see the true force of autumn’s reach in Whistler. Hurry to visit the Roundhouse as it closes for winter preparation on October 10th.
Stroll through upper village and see Blackcomb’s take on the fall season. Maybe even take a short walk up the mountainside to really get a feel for fall on this side of the village. A stop in Portobello's for a hot drink or a tasty sandwich is a great way to round off your autumn adventure.
Ross Rebagliati Park
Nestled beside Fitzsimmons Creek and surrounded by a grove of trees, this park is named after a Whistler local, Ross Rebagliati, who won the first gold medal ever for snowboarding in the Olympics. It's quiet location and abundant vegetation will allow you to admire autumn in peace.
Whistler Golf Course
The grass may still be green but the neighboring trees have a different plan in store and the combination of colors is worth the walk. The course can be seen from the Valley Trail or even better, while your playing a round. You may even be lucky enough to meet Whistler’s real locals- The bears! Many of them begin to return to the valley at this time of year.
