The brand new fully serviced change rooms are nestled in the boutique backcountry base surrounded by Whistler’s old growth forest, with easy access to other activities and food & beverage service.

Wedge Changing Rooms

The Green River Tour provides the perfect combination of fun bouncy rapids and spectacular scenery surrounded by snow-capped mountains. It is the perfect choice for first-timers or for those on a family adventure. The Class 2 and 3 rapids are fun and exciting for everyone and can easily fit into any schedule.

After you check in for your tour, our professional guides will welcome you, talk you through our safety protocols, and get you geared up with a wetsuit, booties, a PFD and a helmet and you can leave your valuables in complimentary lockers. Complimentary lockers are available to leave your valuables in while you’re on the river. A shuttle service is provided from basecamp to Green Lake to begin the tour, and the shuttle will pick you up at the end of the river, bringing you back to basecamp to dry off. Here you can grab a bite to eat at the Cedar Cafe.

Adventure with us safely.

The safety of our employees and guests is our primary concern.The emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in late 2019 has prompted a need for many institutions to create policies and procedures for safe operation during the pandemic. Measures that serve to limit the spread of COVID-19 while maintaining business operations require a shift in normal operations with the goal of maintaining physical distancing and safe practices for Infection Prevention and Control (IPC).

The Adventure Group has collaborated with PEAK Emergency Response Training on solutions for infectious disease management and control to offer safe recreational activities in the adventure tourism space. PEAK and The Adventure Group are focused on developing policies and procedures that are consistent with WorkSafe BC and regional health authority’s direction on reopening businesses. The purpose of the COVID-19 management program for The Adventure Group is to fulfill the requirements from WorkSafe BC and the Provincial Health Officer regarding written plans for safe operation.

Guests will be required to consent to a non-invasive temperature check, and wearing a mask is requires at times. Masks will be provided, or guests can bring their own.

Below is a list of the COVID-19 procedures put in place.

Zero Ceiling is committed to ending youth homelessness in BC. For over twenty years, they’ve been helping young people facing homelessness have a healthy transition to adulthood. They provide stability, support, and opportunities so that young people can focus on personal growth. They believe every young person deserves the chance to become the best version of themselves.

Based in Whistler, they serve youth aged 16-24 from Metro Vancouver and the Sea to Sky Corridor. Their programs offer supportive housing, supportive employment, case management, life skills education, mental health supports, and outdoor recreation in a safe, supportive environment. They build strong relationships and support young people for as long as they need: just like a family.

Like many charities, Zero Ceiling were hit hard with the CCOVID-19 crisis. Many of those they support did not have anywhere else to turn, and as an essential service to their participants they stayed committed as ever to ensure the safety, health, and well-being of the young people they serve.

Zero Ceiling’s goal is to raise $20,000 to provide housing, stability, and support for young people facing homelessness at this critical time and will be giving away a weekend of adventure and a two-night hotel stay in the heart of Whistler village. Buy a raffle ticket to win a Whistler Staycation for two here, tickets on sale until July 31.
