This scenic bungee jump in Canada keeps going even in the middle of winter

If Canadian snowsports like downhill skiing and ice skating aren't quite exhilarating enough for your iron stomach, there's one activity in Whistler, B.C. that you'll definitely want to check out.

Only those looking for a real thrill will be brave enough to face the Whistler Bungee, a nearly 50 m bungee jump that drops participants off a bridge over the Cheakamus River valley.

The jump is arguably the most unique way to take in the beautiful mountains and old growth forests the area is known for, and a good way to get out of the party-central Whistler Village and into nature.

The popular attraction is open year-round, and even offers transport out to the bungee location for those who don't have a car.

The prices aren't the cheapest, but are realistic — ranging from $80 for members to $140 for first-timers, plus the cost of the drive if needed — and definitely seem more than worth it for such a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Also, group packages for ten people or more are available for a discounted rate, offering up the perfect activity for the most memorable birthday or other celebration.
