The Local’s List: December 2019

The Local’s List: December 2019

Your guide to what’s up, what’s new, and what’s on in Whistler for the month of December. 

It’s December in Whistler and the lights are up, the snow is starting to fall and the town is well on its way to looking like it belongs in a snow globe. Whistler Blackcomb is open for skiing and riding and we’re seeing how many of the days left in 2019 we can spend on snow. Speaking of which, the holidays are coming! From film premieres to fireworks, roasting marshmallows to popping champagne, there are so many ways to get in the festive spirit.

You’ll find us:
