Meet the Whistler.com Team

We Know Whistler

At Whistler.com, we come to work every day for one reason – to share our passion for the mountains. Our office is located at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, and our travel consultants live and breathe Whistler every day. We’re a team of skiers, bikers, snowboarders, golfers and hikers that happen to live and work in the best alpine ski destination in the world.

Real Advice, Real-Time

We go to great lengths to try before you buy so that we can give you the best advice on any aspect of the resort including accommodation, lift tickets, snow school, golf, spas and things to do in every season. Plus, we're based in Whistler, so always have the most up-to-date, local tips on conditions and what's on. Want to know real-time mountain conditions? No problem, we’ll take a ski break and get back to you.

The Whistler.com team is comprised of locals that have explored the area summer, winter, spring and fall for over 173 years combined.
