Timber Creek Lodge Episode 2: Whistler Bachelor Party

Whelp, that was one roller coaster of an episode that’s for sure! The Timber Creek Lodge gang learning the boundaries associated with being professional and fun at the same time had us on edge. No doubt it’s a tricky balance to find and is different with each group of guests. Even though they may have walked the line or crossed it this time around – you can decide – the Whistler bachelor party crew didn’t seem to mind. Those boys looked like they had a blast in our neck of the woods. Coming to Whistler is always a good time but it really helps when you have the right crew.

Getting Wild with Canadian Wilderness Adventures

Whether it’s for a Whistler bachelor party or a spur-of-the-moment guys’ weekend, a trip out in the woods with Canadian Wilderness Adventures is always a good choice. Canadian offers ATV tours almost year round, and when that’s out of the question your crew can get on snowmobiles instead!

In this episode the guys went on a ride through the Callaghan Valley and tested out some single track trails nested in a stunning old growth forest. Rugged terrain, eye catching views and of course blasting through puddles is always encouraged when you get on an ATV with Canadian Wilderness Adventures. They have a variety of options for location, length of tour and even have Jeep Tours for those slightly rough mornings where strictly sightseeing might be the better option. Mention it when you book your next custom vacation with Gibbons Life and our team of experienced concierges will set you up with the perfect ATV experience!

Bears in Whistler

The bear! Should we even talk about mooning bears?! No let’s not. But let’s talk about how to see a bear in Whistler. Chances are you’ll see one while you’re in town whether you intend to or not. In the warmer months you can often spot them from the gondola going up Whistler Mountain or even sauntering the valley trail. If your main purpose is to see a bear, definitely check out a Sunset or Sunrise Bear Viewing Photo Safari Tour in the Callaghan region. This off road tour will keep you on your toes and check bear viewing off your bucket list! All visitors to Whistler should check out Bear Smart for how to act, react and what preventable measures to take for visiting bear country. YES – that includes the village! Read up and be mindful of your garbage. Don’t let your laziness cost a bear its life.

Sushi Time

On a lighter note, nothing goes down smoother than a Sake Margarita in Whistler. Sushi Village takes reservations for a reason folks, it’s the best sushi and sake in town! This venue is something else in all aspects. Kick off your shoes, slip into a private Japanese booth and let the sake flow, just like the Whistler bachelor party did in episode two!

Sunshine, Snow and Shredding

On the down day for the staff of Timber Creek Lodge the guys headed up Whistler Mountain for a few spring laps! Nothing says Whistler like sunny shreds on the mountain. Regardless of whether you live and work in this town or are visiting, most come to Whistler to ski!
