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.

  • Easiest falls to get to ever. The falls are just off the road and you park right next to the observation deck. As an addition you are likely to see black bears along the side of the road going back to route 99.
  • Water will always find it's Level. Ultimately at Sea LEVEL. Natural Dynamics of fluids is they will always find their Level. No curvature to water, capiche !
  • 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!
  • A beautiful waterfall with easy access. There's a parking lot with two outhouses and a viewing platform.
  • Amazing water fall. I love the place.
