Welcome to Whistler

The  easy part is over. You’ve made the decision to come to Whistler. Bravo! We’re so glad you’re here. You won’t regret a single minute.

But now for the hard part — deciding how you’re going to pack in everything you want to do while you’re here.

Are you going to ski or ride a snowboard? Whistler or Blackcomb? Both in one day? Where do the locals go? Where’s the best après? Where’s the best place to grab a quick bite to eat or to have a long, sumptuous meal? What else is going on here?

That’s where we come in. The answers to all those questions, and many more, can be found tucked within the pages of FAQ — the true insiders’ guide to Whistler. We’re here to guide you in the right direction.

Believe it or not, Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains are just the tip of the… well, the tip of the town. Yes, it’s true; these two majestic mountains are the heart of the resort. But look a little deeper into the soul of the resort and we promise, you won’t be disappointed.

And to think it all began with an Olympic dream in the early 1960s. It only took 50 years but the dream became reality in 2010. There’s a rich history to explore in those five decades, and the time before through the Squamish and Lil’wat First Nations’ culture and history.

Tales of the early settlers braving the three-day journey from Vancouver, the legends of the hedonistic nascent resort days, the stories of the burgeoning resort business as Whistler carved out a name for itself. This is who we are.

We know the skiing and riding can be a transcendental experience. But open your mind to experience all Whistler has to offer — the world-class spas, the top-notch dining, the host of indoor and outdoor pursuits for the young, and the young at heart.

There’s a reason Whistler is on many a bucket list. Don’t “tick it off” your list but rather make yourself at home, stay for a while, soak it all in, see for yourselves why we call this home.
