Waterfall
Round out your visit to Whistler by seeing Alexander Falls, one of the city's most picturesque cascades. Three escarpments make up the falls, reaching an impressive total of 43 m (141 ft) high and 12 m (40 ft) wide. Don your snowshoes or hiking boots for the 30-minute trail leading to the picturesque lookout point. If you have time constraints or are less inclined to walk, drive to the parking lot conveniently close to the top of the waterfall.

  • A bit off the road on the way to Whistler, Alexander Fall is definitely worth a visit, even if you have to trek through a few feet of snow to visit. It's absolutely beautiful but don't expect the trail to be plowed or the outhouses to be visible. It was absolutely stunning in the winter and wasn't frozen despite the freezing temperatures. I would definitely return in warmer weather!
  • Amazing water fall. I love the place.
  • A beautiful waterfall with easy access. There's a parking lot with two outhouses and a viewing platform.
  • worth a visit, just a bit hard to find, make sure you take the first left of the 2 sand roads.
  • Fantastic waterfall in bear country, lots of rabbits too, great place to drive up to and see the now defunct olympic training grounds! Possible to catch a bear or two sneaking around.
