Whistler CommunityLocated just 2 hours North of Vancouver along the new developed and scenic Sea to Sky highway (99), the village of Whistler is your getaway to skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, outdoor fun, sporting events and local Arts and Culture for the whole family. Nestled in the Coast Mountains of British Columbia, Whistler Blackcomb is consistently rated the Number One Ski and Mountain Bike resort in North America. In addition to being a major outdoor recreation destination, Whistler Village also hosts a number of cultural events each year including the Whistler Film Festival and Cornucopia – A gala for food and wine aficionados.
North of Whistler is Pemberton, home of agriculture, good golfing and amazing views. To the South, Squamish is growing in recognition as being well positioned between Vancouver and Whistler. Home of the Sea to Sky corridor's Quest University, Squamish also offers excellent outdoor activities and is on the verge of a downtown renewal that has the potential for marina expansion and waterfront residential development.
The Village is the central neighborhood of the town of Whistler, located at the base of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. It is divided into several areas - the Village, Village North and Upper Village. All the areas are connected by the paved, pedestrian-only Village Stroll.
Whistler Village is where locals and visitors mingle throughout the year, coming and going from outdoor adventures. There are people shopping and renting skis and bikes, kids exploring the playgrounds and plenty of people-watching opportunities from sunny patios and restaurants. Depending on the season, you can catch events like free open air concerts, street entertainment and markets.
What's so special about the Village? There's always something to see and do and the sights and sounds change with the seasons making every visit new and exciting. But most of all there's a special energy that only people in a beautiful place having a wonderful time can create, and you can feel it every time you walk the Stroll.
