As Whistler’s signature winter adventures and experiences begin to gear up for the season, there’s plenty to explore. New this year, Vallea Lumina will offer a special winter season edition of its signature multi-media night walk, which immerses guests in a light show set deep in old growth forests. Early season also offers the opportunity to warm up those ski legs and enjoy quieter slopes as Whistler Blackcomb opening on November 28.
