Whistler Village

Whistler Village

There are many things to do in the Village, the heart of Whistler. Whistler Village is big enough to have all the amenities expected of a world-class resort, yet small enough for you to feel its unique mountain culture and distinctive hospitality. Relax and enjoy the friendly atmosphere every season of the year.

See the Whistler Insider Blog for the latest on events, activities and things to do around the Village.

About Whistler Village

The Village is conveniently located at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, a gateway to a range of exciting activities including skiing and snowboarding in winter and mountain biking, hiking and golf in summer. The Village is linked by the Village Stroll, a pedestrian-only causeway lined with shops, restaurants, hotels and other accommodation all with views of the surrounding mountains.
