5 Travel Tips for your Whistler Holiday

March 27, 2023

Here are 5 great travel tips for your upcoming Whistler holiday! Planning ahead is a great way to ensure you can max out on your play and relax time in Whistler.

1.Book your transportation: This one is obvious coming from us – haha! The Sea to Sky highway is an absolutely beautiful ride, and in almost every case you don’t need a car in Whistler, so we recommend pre-booking private transportation with us for a seamless and easy meet and greet door to door Sea to Sky experience to and from Whistler. Our knowledgeable drivers can give you great local tips and you get a chance to sit back and take in those scenic views along the way.

2. Pack appropriate clothing: There are so many activities to take part in on and off the mountain in Whistler – skiing, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, hiking, walking the Valley Trail or Village stroll, shopping, a visit to the spa, biking, and many more! It’s important to dress appropriately, so make sure you pack clothing that is warm, waterproof, and breathable. We on the West Coast like to use the word ‘layers’ to ensure we can layer up or layer down depending on the possible changing weather conditions.

3. Rent equipment in advance: If you’re planning on renting skis, snowboards, or other equipment, it’s a good idea to do so in advance. This will save you time and money, and ensure that you have the equipment you need when you arrive at the resort. Black Tie Ski Rentals are a great Whistler company that allows you to book online and have your equipment delivered right to you for an in-room fitting.

4. Check the weather forecast: Before you head to the resort, check the Whistler weather forecast to ensure you’ve packed and prepared appropriately. This will help you plan your activities during your time in Whistler and make sure that you’re prepared for any weather conditions that may arise.

5. Reserve early: Whistler can be very popular year round (no surprise here!) especially during peak seasons, so it’s always a good idea to book your transportation, accommodations and activities early if you can. Pre-booking will help ensure availability so you can relax and enjoy all Whistler has to offer.

These 5 travel tips for your Whistler holiday are a great starting point to help ensure that your time in Whistler can be just as you’ve imagined it – beautiful, adventurous, relaxing, with an abundance of great memories!
