In the summer months, Whistler Mountain is somewhat divided in two.  The lower half of the mountain is for biking and the upper half is more for hiking, sightseeing, trail running, eating and drinking.  There are three main directions you can hike from the Roundhouse Lodge.  Just past the Peak2Peak Gondola building you will see the Spearhead Loop trail that is 1.2 kilometres or 0.7 miles long and with not a lot of elevation gain/loss at roughly 20 metres or 66 feet overall.  Following it to the left you will descend down an easy trail toward Harmony Lake where you can link to the Harmony Lake Loop trail or veer back to where you started.  If you follow the Spearhead Loop trail to the right you will quickly ascend a gravel road and after a couple hundred metres find the junction to Pika’s Traverse Road.  This gravel access road takes you up to the summit of Whistler Mountain via a constantly ascending, though very beautiful 3.2 kilometre or 2 mile route.  New in 2018 the Cloudraker Skybridge was built spanning the gap between cliffs just steps from the top of the Peak Express Chair.  At 130 metres long and with Whistler Bowl directly below, the bridge sways as you walk across the dizzyingly high gap to the new Raven's Eye Cliff Walk.  The Raven's Eye Cliff Walk gives you wonderful views over the Whistler valley as well as an excellent vantage point to see the Peak Express Chair with Blackcomb Mountain and the Spearhead Range in the background.  The Spearhead Range encompasses Blackcomb Mountain, while the Fitzsimmons Range includes Whistler Mountain and extends to Overlord MountainOverlord Mountain is where the two mountain ranges meet, separated by Fitzsimmons River that flows from Overlord Glacier down to Whistler Village before pouring into Green Lake.  The Fitzsimmons River gives Green Lake its wonderful glacier green colouring.  Glacier water contains particles of rock that reflect light producing dazzlingly vivid colours.  With Green Lake it is a brilliant light turquoise greenish colour, similar to Cheakamus Lake and Wedgemount LakeGaribaldi Lake has more of a turquoise blue colour to it.
