Trade your ski gear for plaid flannel and embrace your inner lumberjack at Forged Axe Throwing, Whistler’s newest way to après. Book an hour-long drop-in session for up to 10 people to learn some basic axe-throwing techniques, then work out your lift line frustrations by chucking axes at a bulls-eye. (Think darts, but much more therapeutic.) You’ll feel a little more Canadian with each satisfying thunk as the axe blade sinks into the wood.
For safety’s sake, you can’t drink and throw – but you’ll find both Coast Mountain Brewery and Whistler Brewing within an easy stroll when you’re ready to hang up the hatchets and toast your success.
