Other Rides and Sights
When on a Spitfire bike or scooter rental, how you get there is just as fun! Take a ride through the Whistler Valley and enjoy the cultural and natural sights, including legacies of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
Whistler Sliding Centre
The fastest sliding track in the world, Whistler Sliding Centre was the venue for bobsleigh, luge and skeleton events during the 2010 Winter Olympics. The track is still used for World Cup events and athlete training during the winter and is open for interpretive tours during the summer, as well as a rolling bobsleigh experience. A great ride for scooters and Ebikes by climbing the switchbacks to the top of Glacier Lane.
Alta Lake Road/stonebridge Drive
The original resort in Whistler was located on the west shore of Alta Lake where Rainbow Park now stands. Alta Lake Road skirts the edge of the lake with amazing views of Whistler, Blackcomb and Wedge mountains. Take a detour up Stonebridge Drive for an even better view and a peek at Whistler's most exclusive property development
Cheakamus crossing/Olympic Village
This area south of Whistler was the sight of the Athletes Village during the 2010 Winter Olympics. Much of Cheakamus Crossing is now a residential neighborhood but visitors can enjoy the mountain views from the greenspace at Bayly Park and take a break on the shores of the Cheakamus River. Ebikes can even ride along the Sea to Sky Trail to visit the historic Trainwreck site.
Green Lake Lookout/Emerald
A popular lookout north of Whistler on the way to Emerald. It has great views of Wedge Mountain and the Armchair Glacier as well as Green Lake itself. Simply ride north on Highway 99 or the Valley Trail until you see a pull out. Keep heading to Emerald if you'd like to drive through one of Whistler's oldest neighbouroods.
