Meet Hayden Korte-Moore, a pro skier/model based in Whistler, British Columbia. Originally from Ottawa, Hayden made the move out west in pursuit of exploring the mountains. Known for her bright personality and epic adventures on Instagram, we reached out to Hayden to tell us the best things to do this summer in and around Whistler, British Columbia. If this list doesn’t make you want to throw on some Lululemon and hit the hills, then I don’t know what will. Check out her top ten activities below.
Where: Garibaldi Provincial Park
What: An awesome hike to a bright glacier blue lake in Garibaldi Provincial Park
Hayden Says: “It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen. And, because the hike is difficult, it’s not over crowded like other popular hikes in Whistler.”
Where: 121-, 4368 Main St, Whistler, BC V0N 1B4
What: Fresh homemade Italian food nestled off the beaten path in Whistler. Go here for seriously good food for really reasonable prices.
Hayden Says: “Pasta Lupino is probably one of my favourite restaurants in Whistler. They always give such welcoming service and all of their pasta and sauces are made in house. Recommendation: Chicken Parmesan with rosé sauce.”
Where: Callaghan Rd, Whistler, BC V0N 1B1
What: Amazing lake that you can canoe across.
Hayden Says: “A 20-minute drive south of Whistler village (up a pretty interesting logging road), lies the beautiful Callaghan Valley. If you’re lucky enough to have or know someone with a canoe it’s the perfect place to go for a sunset paddle.”
Where: 4340 Sundial Crescent, Whistler, BC V0N 1B4
What: The best sushi ever. Go here for celebrating events or just celebrating the best sushi ever in your mouth.
Hayden Says: “Everyone knows that Whistler has some really good sushi restaurants, but nothing beats Sushi Village. It’s the perfect place to go for a rowdy birthday party or even a date. Plus, all of the rolls on their menu are so creative and delicious. Recommendation: Super hiro roll, strawberry sake margarita and tangy tofu.”
Where: Birkenhead Provincial Park
What: An awesome campsite not too far from Whistler. Go here to catch some #campvibes.
Hayden Says: “Just a little north of Pemberton is Birkenhead Lake Provincial Park; the perfect place to camp for a night or two. The campground surrounds the turquoise lake and there are a bunch of fun/mellow hikes to do within walking distance.”
Where: 4010 Whistler Way, Whistler, BC V0N 1B4
What: An indoor climbing wall and gym located in the Whistler Village. Head here to brush up on your climbing skills or to catch a workout class.
Hayden Says: “Living in the coastal mountain range you don’t always get the luxury of year round sunshine, so when the weather is not so hot The Core is the perfect place to go. Whether you want to do a fitness class, spin, or use their indoor climbing gym, you always leave feeling awesome.”
Where: Green Lake, Whistler, BC.
What: An epic lake located north of Whistler Village. The glacier run-off makes this lake nice to look at but way too cold to swim in.
Hayden Says: “After a long day at work, in the bike park, or on the mountain, one of my favourite things to do is grab some friends, a blanket, some snacks and enjoy watching the day fade away on the mountains over Green Lake.”
Where: Upper Village, Whistler, BC.
What: Outdoor summer community market that happens every Sunday during the summer
Hayden Says: “On a Sunday afternoon, the farmers market is the best place to go to pick up some local produce and buy within the Whistler community.”
Where: Whistler Blackcomb Resort
What: World-renowned mountain biking on Whistler Blackcomb.
Hayden Says: “If you’re looking to do something to get your adrenaline pumping this is the place to do it. Whistler is known for its world renowned mountain biking but don’t let that intimidate you, the trails range from easy to intermediate to difficult so it can be fun for any level of biker.”
Where: 7174 Nancy Greene Drive, Whistler, BC V0N 1B7
What: Want to feel like a local? Head to White Gold Yoga for a truly authentic Whistler community experience.
Hayden Says: “Their power yoga classes are awesome and every Monday at 12 they host a $5 community class. Yoga is the best way to sweat out all the sake margaritas you had over the weekend.”
