Vallea Lumina, Whistler’s immersive light-up night walk is expanding its offerings into the fall and winter season.

The event takes place at Cougar Mountain, just 10 minutes away from Whistler Village, and was first introduced in the summer of 2018.

Starting Thursday, they’ll be opening their first-ever winter journey to the public. Organizers promise a “winter wonderland filled with dazzling lights, emotive soundscapes, and stunning scenography.”

The 45-minute adventure follows Lenoard and Gloria, two hikers who are seeking “a mystical valley where stardust falls from the sky.” The interactive experience gives hikers the chance to play, touch, and engage with Vallea Lumina’s ever-changing environment.

The interactive experience is presented by Montreal-based entertainment studio Moment Factory and Whistler’s very own “The Adventure Group.”

The team behind Vallea Lumina says that the experience will take place on a newly built trail, which has little elevation change, making it smoother and easier to walk on. There will also be additional lighting effects to heighten the visitors’ experience.

Similar to their summer installations, there will also be a free shuttle going to and from Cougar Mountain, as well as non-alcoholic refreshments and snacks available for purchase on-site.

“We’ve been so thrilled with the response received from both locals and visitors from around the world that we knew we had to take Vallea Lumina to the next level with a winter experience,” says Joey Houssian, Founder and CEO of The Adventure Group. “It’s magical and truly a winter wonderland.”
