Whistler is a beautiful town, summer or winter. It is a place that you park on the outskirts of town then walk in. To go anywhere in Whistler you must walk so if you have older people that have difficulty getting around you may want to plan accordingly. The visitors center had one wheelchair to rent and it was already gone when we got there. You would think a place that is known for skiing would have wheelchairs for those who find out they are not as good of a skier as they thought they were. Besides the lack of wheelchairs this is a wonderful place to spend a day or two, walking around looking in the shops and discovering new restaurants. One thing that you must do when you are there and the trip would not be complete without it, is to do the Peak to Peak gondola ride. It is about $40 per person but you take a small gondola up to the top of the mountain and then you can take a chairlift up to the very top peak (highly recommended) at no additional cost, then get something to eat at the lodge and checkout some of the shops. Once you are done there you can take the larger gondola to go from Peak to Peak. They do have a few gondolas with a glass bottom for the brave. The distance between the two peaks is about 3 miles but it is high. You can spend as much time as you like up in the mountains and you can even take another chairlift down from that mountain peak and get a great view of Whistler but you are a little walk away from town. If you don't want to do the walk you can just get back on the Peak to Peak gondola and retrace your steps right back down the mountain into the town of Whistler. The fee is for one trip up the mountain and back down. You can ride all chairlifts and gondola's that are up on the mountains for additional cost. It is well worth the money.
