As epic as the riding was, we had to pull away to get a canoe ride in on a kayaking tour which was fun for the whole family!

Nightlife

Prior to dinner at the Bearfoot Bistro, we had some unique entertainment… The owners gave us a sabering demonstration. I had no idea what sabering was and now that I’ve seen it, I’m still not quite sure what it’s all about. Something to do with opening bottles with sabers?

After dinner at Bearfoot Bistro, check out the Ketel One Ice Room. Even if you are lightweight like me, the experience of going into the ice room was pretty memorable.

Where to Rent Bikes in Whistler

There are numerous places to rent. You’ll want to rent bikes from different shops depending on the type of riding you plan to be doing. The bike shop and rental store at Salomon at the Pan Pacific Moutainside Hotel rents bikes for casual trail riding. Numerous bike rentals in Whistler Village cater to those who are looking to do some more serious downhill. Those shops have downhill bikes and bikes with more aggressive geometries available.

Whistler Village Sports. This place is also well stocked on gear in case you forgot to pack something for the ride. I picked up gloves and shorts for my son who wanted to join me on the trails.

Salomon Store and Bike Rentals. This is where the fam and I rented our trail bikes from. Note that, in general, the rate for regular trail bikes are usually less than the rate for downhill bikes.
