TIPS & SAFETY

TIPS FOR HIKING

  • Never hike alone.
  • Be prepared. Mountain weather changes frequently so carry extra clothing.
  • Observe all closures. Stay on marked trails to avoid damage to the alpine ecosystem.
  • Treat all wildlife with caution. Do not feed or approach bears.
  • Carry water, a snack, sunscreen and a watch. Make note of the last ride down (5pm).
  • No hiking permitted in the Bike Park.
  • No fires, dogs or camping allowed.

PARENTS

Infants/toddlers can be taken on a chairlift (excluding PEAK CHAIR) if they are strapped securely to the parent’s body in a sling, snugly or front carrier. Backpack carriers are not permitted.

CAUTION

Due to fire and environmental concerns, smoking is not permitted anywhere on Whistler Blackcomb property.

BEARS

The slopes of Whistler Blackcomb provide the perfect environment for black bears.

  • If you see a bear, do not approach him/her. Give the bear time to get away or if he/she approaches, back away slowly.
  • While hiking, make a noise occasionally or wear a bell to help prevent surprising an animal.
  • Never litter, even biodegradable items such as fruit peels. It only attracts bears and gets them into trouble. These days, bears need our respect and support more than ever, so we can share the mountains with them for generations to come.
