Yes, tourists travel from far and wide to enjoy everything that it has to offer, but for B.C. and Washington residents, Whistler is our neighbour. And as we insiders know, it’s not just one of the best resorts in the world, it’s the best. Period. So for that reason we are always open to hearing ways of making the best of our vacation and getting the most value while we are at it.
You know that locals get it
By taking advantage of your status as a local, you can ensure you make the most of your next trip. In fact, from the moment you book you can stand to benefit. By shopping with whistler.com you can enjoy the advantages of Whistler Rewards—and feel good about supporting a local business.
Once you’re there, Whistler is a great place to enjoy a village and community vibe and meet like-minded people. Be sure to check out some of the local stores, restaurants, and galleries, where you can often meet the owners, too.
There is so much to do in Whistler that, even for locals, there are always new opportunities to try something different. Whistler also has an array of nonphysical activities for the more cultured among us. The Audain Art Museum, located by the Village, houses a permanent collection of artworks from B.C. and hosts exhibitions from leading museums around the world.
You know how to time it right
In addition to the amazing ski conditions, there are lots of exciting events taking place over Easter and spring break, so that you’ll have no shortage of activities to fill the extra-long spring days.
