Whistler Visitor Centre

Whistler Visitor Centre

Welcome to Whistler! Whether you are in town for a day trip or an extended vacation, drop in and speak to one of our friendly and professional team members for up-to-date information on what's happening around town. We can assist with everything from accommodation and bus schedules to directions and activity information - just ask!

We live, work and play in Whistler year-round - here are some of our favourite things to do this season:


For a great summer Sunday you can head up the Whistler Gondola for a day of alpine hiking. The High Note Trail starts behind the Inukshuk at the top of the Peak Express Chairlift on Whistler Mountain. While on this hike you will enjoy beautiful views of Black Tusk and Cheakamus Lake, you will then loop back to the Roundhouse Lodge. After the 10KM hike you can enjoy the effortless views from the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola. You can take a break at the Rendezvous Lodge on Blackcomb Mountain for some lunch at the mountain top restaurant. Once you’re done you can return to the valley by taking the Solar Coaster and Wizard Chair down the mountain to the Upper Village. If you have enough time you can and enjoy the local Farmers’ Market, which operates every Sunday providing you with access to local artisans, and farmers crafts and food.

-Carmen, Visitor Centre Counsellor

Avoid lining up for tickets this summer and buy your PEAK 2 PEAK Alpine Experience 1 day sightseeing tickets at the Visitor Centre. We open at 8 AM so you have enough time to grab breakfast and then hop on the Whistler Vilage Gondola, saving more time to spend hiking the alpine trails.
