Bob and his wife were very accommodating and helped us organise a fun session for our staff retreat. Bob and his staff were very thorough and helpful, ensuring us first-timers felt safe and comfortable in a foreign environment. Needless to say, we all had a great experience and tons of fun!

I've been going to the core for a lot of years now whenever I'm in Whistler. Firstly, the staff are all awesome and very friendly upon arrival. Very efficient to get you sorted out, whether a single drop in or week pass. The facilities themselves are AWESOME!!! It reminds me of one of my old school gyms, in that it... More

My sister and I did an outdoor climbing class with Joe. He was really helpful and patient especially with me, as I was a little scared. It was our first rock climbing experience so we first did the "easier" wall and then another one which was a little more challenging. Finally, we also practiced some releasing from the wall which...

Our grand kids went with their ski camp to rock climb for an afternoon activity. They practiced on rope ladders and "rock faces". Then the group was divided into two teams doing a friendly competitive rock climb for a session finale. The kids took turns in trying out the various rope climbs and rock faces. They had fun while being... More

I recently tried out The Core for a bachelor party with 13 of my friends. We did a 4 hour outdoor climbing tour, tree walk and repelling. Bob and the staff were amazing. They were very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything and made sure we felt comfortable with what we were doing. We had a large group... More

Cool place to workout and very friendly too. Only tried the cross fit area and the insanity session but really liked the place. Clean and well looked after. What else could you ask for.

The Core is a top shelf establishment. The facility is clean and full of great stuff, including climbing walls, cycle bikes, and a ton of gym equipment. The staff is lovely. And there is loads for everyone to do, from exercise classes, to locals climbing night, to bouldering, to climbing the walls. Strong recommend on this place.

Looking for a rainy day activity for the family, our hotel concierge recommended The Core. Our experience far exceeded our expectations for an indoor climbing facility. Our guide, Bob, was incredibly knowledgeable, kind and enthusiastic. It was great fun and a fantastic workout as well. We were all on a (natural) high when we left and agreed it was worth... More

Great staff and a good space to work out if you need it while away. We dropped the kids in for a 'Climb and Dine' on Friday and then headed out - they had an awesome time and were well looked after. We will be back!
