Whistler Sleigh Ride Tours

What could be more romantic than British Columbia in the wintertime? World-renowned for its breathtaking forested mountains, Whistler BC is the perfect spot to experience winter at its most exquisite. One of the best ways to see that beauty is by horse-drawn sleigh. Whether you take a calming journey along Green Lake or explore the wonders of Blackcomb Mountain sipping a cup of hot chocolate, sleigh rides are the perfect getaway.

Imagine gliding through the countryside nestled under warm blankets as you listen to the rhythmic hoofbeats of gentle Clydesdale-Pincheron horses crunching upon freshly fallen snow. You could take the whole family or snuggle up to that special someone on your own private interlude. Many couples have started their lives together with a memorable marriage proposal under sparkling Canadian skies. It’s all there at your bidding.

For a simple family escape through the valleys and peaks of Whistler’s mountains, consider a thirty-minute sleigh ride. Your journey starts with a hot beverage around an outdoor fire pit at the Fairmont Chateau Whistler Golf Club. Adults ride for $59.00, children for $29.00.

If your tastes run to a tour through pristine woodlands, take a ride through paths on Blackcomb Mountain. This one-hour excursion in canopied sleighs costs $155.00 for adults and $55.00 for children, and gives a magical view of the lights of Whistler Village. At the ride’s end, you will enjoy a three-course gourmet fondue dinner at the Bavaria Restaurant in the Village. The ride without dinner is $55.00 for adults, $35.00 for children.

You may decide that you want to explore the beauties of the wilderness without the kids. In that case, drop them off at the Meadow Park Sports Centre for an afternoon or evening of supervised activities. Then, take advantage of a private romantic sleigh ride on Blackcomb Mountain. This tour is specially designed for couples–a private getaway for marrieds or singles. The one-hour ride passes through the gorgeous scenery on Blackcomb with a stop at a cozy cabin for a warmer of hot chocolate by a woodstove. The price is $325.00 per person. If you want to enjoy dinner at Bavaria afterward, this unforgettable two-hour event will cost $425.00 per person.

Note that the pricing for all these tours is in Canadian dollars. The prices do not cover alcoholic beverages or gratuities. Finally, verify the designation of “child” and “toddler.” It varies from tour to tour, and toddlers ride for free.

After exploring the wonders of British Columbia in the rustic comfort of a sleigh, you can return to Whistler Village for more diversions. Two hundred shops are a tourist’s paradise, catering to your every need or desire. Then again, you might visit one of the many restaurants or bars for a relaxing dinner (if you did not treat yourself to a sleigh ride/dinner combination) or a warm drink as you relive the day’s adventures. Whatever you choose, you will have created unique memories that will last a lifetime.
