Glacial Streams in Whistler

Whistler Canada Tourist Information

One of the best memories you will have upon returning from Whistler is its broad spectrum of natural colour.  The deep blue skies, emerald forests and autumn leaves are stunning.

One of the most unique features in Whistler is the colour of the creeks that run through the village.  Their turquoise colour is caused by glacial silt that is suspended in the water.  It results from massive glaciers grinding away at the earth's surface.
