  • Gorgeous views on the local mountains and excellent hike from Green lake on Whistler Valley trail. Very popular with dogs and nordic skieurs. Very easy to walk in the middle of winter with good boots.  more »

  • This is really an awesome space and story, in that it's where it all began in this area, in 1914, as a little fishing lodge for lovers. A young teenage, hopeless romantic couple, named Myrtle and Alex Philip pioneered the shores of this Summit Lake called Alta Lake by building a fishing retreat called Rainbow Lodge. In the early 20th century, it was common for wealthy families, to send their children out, to pioneer new places, to help in the building their families empires, and Myrtle and Philip were no different. Their family financed their trip from the north east of the United States in Maine all around the Cape Horn up to Vancouver, British Columbia, where they commissioned the supplies, for what they thought they would need, to pioneer a wilderness, they had never been to. Then they loaded the supplies onto a steamship that took all day to get the 70 km from Vancouver, British Columbia to the Pemberton trailhead, where they unloaded their stuff, onto the backs of mules and then walked behind them, for two days to the shores of Alta lake, where they began building a Rainbow Lodge. This awesome story goes on as well, get up here and we will check it out!
  • Fantastic swimming and picnic grassy area. Small concession stand, beach volleyball courts, boat and SUP rentals. Parking can be a pain on sunny summer afternoons.
  • Amazing spot, beautiful mountain views. Great for a summer picnic. A must if you are visiting Whistler!
  • Beautiful beach park at Alta lake. Good facilities - restrooms, children's play area, picnic tables etc. Great view of the mountains. We stopped here as we were biking around the lake. There's a cafe not far from the park, called point cafe with live music on Sundays.
  • I swam in a lake here for the first time and it changed my life.
