Day trip activities for a non skier

Hi everybody. I'll be visiting Whistler as a day trip from Vancouver in second week of December. I am a non skier and snow is a rare experience for me. I plan to do the Peak to Peak Gondola. I was also interested in either going for Superfly zipline or snowmobiling. But I am not sure if I can fit either of these activities in the short time I am at Whistler (I would arrive around 8am and depart by 4pm). If I can, then is it recommended to do an advance booking or can I still join either of the tours as a walk in?

I am also interested in photography. Which of these activities would give me a better opportunity to capture the snowbound landscapes? (Apart from the still pics, I'd also be bringing a GoPro camera for capturing these tours). Thanks.

Check with the Whistler site to see what could be available. Another option would be to ride down the bobsled run.

You would have time to do both PEAK 2 PEAK and a zipline tour. For example 9am Ziptrek - finish around 12 noon. You would have 3 hours for P2P gondola + lunch which is sufficient.

I would suggest booking the Ziptrek Bear or Eagle tour combo with the P2P ticket. You get a discount on both when you buy the combo.

Superfly is great - though they may not be open in the second week of December. The tour is accessed via snowcat in the winter, so snow is needed in the Valley. It also takes a little longer to get out to the base (10/15 minute drive north of Village).

Both great for photography!
