Though most know Whistler as an out­doors lover’s mecca, there are also plenty of fun ways to stay ac­tive in­doors. Whether you’re look­ing to fill a rainy day, tak­ing a break from the on-moun­tain ac­tion, or seek­ing an après ac­tiv­ity, here are a few gems to check out.

Meadow Park Sports Cen­tre

Just four km north of the Vil­lage on High­way 99 is the Meadow Park Sports Cen­tre, home to all things ac­tive. Pick up a drop-in pass and choose among an as­sort­ment of ac­tiv­i­ties, from swim­ming in the lap pool to skat­ing on the in­door, NHL-sized rink; take a class or sweat it out on the squash courts. Con­di­tion your­self for the moun­tains, or hit the hot tub, steam room, and sauna to soothe your sore mus­cles. Visit whistler.ca.

Es­cape! Whistler

Es­cape! Whistler in the Hil­ton Whistler Re­sort is a fun and chal­leng­ing real-life gaming ac­tiv­ity for a group of friends or the whole fam­ily. Choose from four dif­fer­ent theme rooms with vary­ing de­grees of dif­fi­culty: Pirate Ship, Lost Tomb, Buried Cabin, or Rab­bit Hole. Work to­gether to solve puzzles, rid­dles and clues within a time limit to al­low you to es­cape the sit­u­a­tion.
