Whistler is renowned for its spectacular valley and alpine trails. With over 50 kilometres of beginner to expert hiking and walking trails on Whistler and Blackcomb mountains, Whistler Adaptive leads participants on adventures from short alpine jaunts and peak-to-peak experiences to full-day technical trail hikes. Hiking in Whistler can take you alongside rivers, up to waterfalls, through alpine flowers and to mountain lakes. Getting outside with friends and family and encountering wildlife is therapeutic and great exercise.
Whistler Adaptive can cater to each individual depending on their ability. Trail Riders allow people with mobility restrictions to explore Whistler’s beautiful hiking trails with the help of two volunteers navigating the Trail Rider. The large single wheel is able to take the seated rider along narrow trails and over roots and rocks with comfort, while hand brakes for the navigator makes for easy descents after climbing to mountaintop viewpoints. Cummerbunds and straps can be used for extra support, while storage space is available for any necessities. This innovative adaptive equipment takes accessibility to a whole new level allowing the entire family to enjoy the alpine together!
