Take a look around. The leaves are starting to fall, the nighttime temperatures are cooling, and Starbuck’s has brought back their Pumpkin Spice latte. As if you needed any more clues, summer is drifting into fall. With the arrival of September 1st, many of us are leaving summer behind and if you what’s coming, you’re probably okay with that. Fall is one of the best times to adventure. Not only are the colours glorious, the conditions for many of our favourite activities are all time. To help inspire you for what’s to come, here are a few of our favourite September Adventures.
There’s a reason they call it all-time, fall-time. It’s because the dirt is tacky, the trails are begging to be ridden, and there’s still enough day light to do it all. How does it feel to know that some of the best mountain biking of the entire season is before you?
Our Fav: An epic day long adventure into the Sprout Alpine.
Of course the views during the pinnacle of summer are stunning. But have you ever laid eyes on endless mountains covered in red, yellow, and orange? September adventures in the mountains can lead to some beautiful displays of colour and hiking is great way to take in.
Our Fav: The Peak Chair closes operations mid-September so we are all about getting into the Whistler alpine before it is too late.
Take in the autum scenery from on the water. It’s not too cold to partake in this September adventure. It can be common to think that now that summer is done, so are the water based activities. But that is further than the truth. Alta Lake, Green Lake, and Logger’s Lake are waiting to be explored.
Our Fav: We can’t get enough of crisp fall mornings on Alta Lake. Whether it’s in a canoe or on a paddle board. Just make sure you dress for a breeze!
Yes, eating is a fall adventure in Whistler. During this time, many of the local restuarants come out with their fall dining deals. It is a the perfect opportunity to go somewhere that you haven’t been before.
Our Fav: Araxi, Bearfoot Bistro or the RimRock, we love all anything that offers a multi-course menu option!
September adventures are full of fall magic. The weather is still great, the colors of out of this world, and the evening light is as golden as ever. To make sure that you’re properly geared up for fall activities, stop by McCoo’s.
