The Winter Journey begins with a complimentary shuttle from Whistler Village to the snow-covered forests of Cougar Mountain. Upon arrival, guests embark on a breathtaking journey filled with spine-tickling soundscapes, shimmering lights, and delightfully detailed displays. A story unfolds of two hikers following the legend of a hidden valley where stardust falls from the sky, guests engage with the mystical surroundings.

Guests are invited to cozy up at one of the many gas firepits with hot beverages and grab some snacks before entering the woods and when their journey is completed. The forest exploration lasts approximately 45-minutes; combined with transportation to and from the venue, guests should allow at least 1.5-hours for the entire experience.
