Join us for an unforgettable sleigh ride experience in Whistler’s winter wonderland. A horse-drawn sleigh ride is a true Canadian winter outdoor adventure anyone of any age group can enjoy. Sleighs move on metal bottom runners that glide smoothly across the snow. Our ‘olde fashioned bob-sleighs’ are designed for comfort with padded bench seats, canopies, and warm blankets to cozy up under.
Enjoy the pristine silence of winter while hearing only the sound of jingle bells while the sleigh is pulled by our Percheron draft horses. Our friendly staff (including the horses) guide you and your sleigh through Whistler’s snow-covered forested trails. On Blackcomb Mountain, you’re able to view the amazing night lights of Whistler Village before making a stop at our cozy mountain cabin to warm up and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. This is your opportunity to explore Whistler Blackcomb by night on a magical horse-drawn sleigh ride.
Our horses are gentle giants who are strong and friendly and they enjoy having their picture taken or just getting a pat. They always wear show harnesses with jingle bells for everyone to hear as they travel up the trail. Our sleigh drivers are also tour guides who are happy to answer any questions about the flora and fauna as well as the history of the Whistler area.
Blackcomb Sleighrides is Whistler’s premier sleigh ride operator. Our tours have been running on Blackcomb Mountain for 19 years.
Our season starts at the end of November through to March 31 – and is dependent on snow conditions.
We meet our guests at our Mountain Office at Base II on Blackcomb Mountain, which is also parking lot #6 (On Blackcomb Mountain GPS: 4890 Glacier Drive). This is an easy location to find at the top end of Glacier Drive. It is also ONLY a five-minute drive from Whistler Village. Follow Blackcomb Way to Glacier Drive – the drive to the end of Glacier drive to Parking Lot 6. Look for our BIG black and yellow sign – our office is found directly behind this sign.
