The Xterra Whistler triathlon and duathlon comes to town this year from July 21-22 and is an event not to be missed. All events start and finish at the beautiful Lost Lake park in Whistler, B.C., and special changes have been made to this year’s event to make it more family-friendly and a better spectator venue.
“Whistler offers so many great reasons to travel here in the summer—from music concerts to art openings and every kind of festival you could imagine, we have it all. Our vacation rentals offer the perfect combination of privacy and seclusion yet easy access to the heart of Whistler and all of the wonderful events and activities to take part in.” —Jamie Whittaker, Customer Service Manager for Blackcomb Peaks Accommodations
Another favorite annual event coming up in August is the Crankworx Whistler festival. Check out the world’s best mountain bikers as they converge on Whistler for ten days, from August 10-19. Whistler Mountain becomes the venue for this epic freeride festival, with biking competitions ranging from downhill and dual slalom, to big air and best trick, as well as a concert series to kick the week off. Blackcomb Peaks Accommodations offers wonderful lodging options in Whistler Village North, the Upper Village, and Creekside, which all make viewing and attending these events a breeze.
Additionally, Whistler Blackcomb offers a wide variety of cultural events during the summer. The Whistler Arts Council Art Walk is a two-month celebration of the arts, taking place in July and August. Live art demonstrations and various art competitions make Whistler Village a very “artsy” place to be in the summer. The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra makes a two-day stop in Whistler for beautiful music under the stars at the Olympic Plaza, and the Araxi Longtable Dining Series and the Whistler Winemakers Dinners throughout the summer will thrill the palettes of foodies of all kinds.
