3 Fun Indoor Activities To Do in Whistler

Fall is here, and winter is well on it’s way to Whistler this year. With snow already hitting the village in early October, it’s sure to be another fantastic ski and snowboard season.

While we patiently wait for the ski lifts to open, there are lots of great indoor activities to do in Whistler. Take a museum tour, throw axes, eat, drink, and so much more. Here are just a few fun indoor activities you can do in Whistler this fall:

Whistler Audain Art Museum

Visit an Art Gallery or Museum

Rainy fall days are the perfect opportunity to experience some local culture. Numerous art galleries throughout Whistler showcase talented local artists and their artwork. The pinnacle of Whistler’s galleries is the Audain Art Museum. Perfect for any art lover, the Audain houses an incredible Canadian art collection that is great for hours of entertainment.

Learn all about the ski history of Whistler by visiting the Whistler Museum. Located behind the Whistler Public Library, the Museum is your go-to place for learning about how Whistler became what it is today.

Whistler and the Sea to Sky Corridor’s history goes back much farther then it’s remote ski town beginnings. At the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Center you can learn all about the history and culture of the local First Nations people. There are also many hands-on workshops for you to interact, learn, and connect with the rich history.

Whistler Forged Axe Throwing

Toss Hatchets at Forged Axe Throwing

One of our favourite indoor pastimes in Whistler is throwing axes at a wooden target. If you’ve never experienced this genuinely Canadian sport, you’re missing out. Channel your inner lumberjack for an afternoon at Forged Axe Throwing in Whistler Blacktusk. There are also a couple of breweries in the neighbourhood if you’re looking for some refreshments after a long day chucking axes.

Try Escape! Whistler

Work together with friends or family to try to Escape! Whistler. Escape rooms are a fun family activity if you’re stuck inside on a rainy day. Grab a group of friends and test your mental strength with an afternoon of puzzle rooms. Try your luck at all four different room themes – a pirate ship, buried cabin, rabbit hole, and pinball machine. Can you escape them all?
