I'm writing four reviews for the 4 Falls we visited while in Whistler: Shannon, Nairn, Alexander & Brandywine Falls. Overall we've rated them numbers 1, 2, 3 & 4, respectively. Alexander, close to Whistler Olympic Village (about 8 miles south of Whistler), was a short walk through packed snow to see, hear and feel a beautiful sight. Brandywine was, to... More

We stumbled upon the Alexander Falls on the way up to the Whistler Olympic Village which was sadly closed for the season. The short walk down the hill from the car park takes you to the Alexander Falls. Very tall and impressive waterfall with thundering noise. Great views across the valley. Worth a look.

If you like natural beauty and are in the area, these Falls are worth the walk. We were getting over jet-lag and spending time with family and had decided to do some Snow-shoeing. This was on the way from Whistler Village to the area to snow-shoe, so we stopped to look. Seen much better waterfalls, but these are a lovely... More

I apologize : my review of Brandywine Falls is the one that should be Alexander Falls. I repeat : these falls are very near the Olympic Park but that was closed because of an event. The road to the Park and the Falls is new so an easy drive. You can see the falls from the parking lot. About Brandywine... More

The Alexander falls were a quick 20 minute drive from Whistler village. The lookout is attached to the parking lot, so no hiking involved here. The road up to the falls, on the way to Whistler Olympic Park is a known bear sighting road. No bears were sighted. The waterfalls are a nice sight.

This was a short trip from the village and on a road common for bear sightings. We went in the late afternoon and did see a cub along the way. The falls are good for some picture taking.

Hard to find. There is a small signe from the road. Once you find it, go up to the parking lot. The fall is a short walk away.

We stopped by here whilst out on a bear viewing trip. The falls are beautiful as is the surrounding area and a great place to get photographs. Very peaceful. If you like to see the sights then certainly stop by here.

We were taken here on our 'bear hunt' and it is a wide and fast flowing waterfall. We saw it at dusk but it would be even more awesome in sunlight
