Even more fresh winter Whistler powder is upon us this weekend.
It was forecasted, we heard it, we waxed our skis and boards, and we’re ready!
Powder days ahead for Whistler Blackcomb and it’s an exciting time to be in Resort with the upcoming events…
Jan 21st through 28th: Whistler Pride and Ski Festival.
Whistler is gearing up for a packed week of events including epic skiing, snowboarding, parties, social events and comedy gigs.
WSSF: April 10th through 15th.
We’re stoked with the announcement of a new partnership with Whistler Blackcomb and Gibbons Whistler to bring yet another World Ski and Snowboard Festival. Celebrating its 23rd year with the best in culture, art, music and of course immense and intense snow sports with big air competitions. They’re calling it a revitalization…bring it!
Family Après: Every Monday and Wednesday through March 28th.
Who doesn’t love a great après ski? Olympic Plaza in the Village is doing it up family style this season once again with music, lights, local entertainment, sweet eats and much more. Come out and enjoy the fun every Monday and Wednesday after you’ve had your fill on the hill.
Getting to Whistler.
Remember, Whistler has great in-Resort transfer and shuttle options available to you so leave your car at home and let us get you to Whistler safely, easily and comfortably.
It’s been big news recently that Vail Resorts has announced a massive $66 million gondola & lift upgrade to Whistler Blackcomb Mountains for the coming year. Way!
First of all, a new gondola on the Blackcomb side, in addition to lift upgrades will make both mountains even more accessible. So this will allow you to really maximize your time enjoying the slopes!
The new 10 passenger gondola that will replace the Wizard and Solar chairlifts at the base of Blackcomb will move a whopping 4,000 people every hour. This will out-do all others in North America in capacity.
In addition, and in terms of lift upgrades, the Family Zone’s Emerald Express will see a face-lift from a 4 passenger to a 6 passenger high speed. The 3 passenger Catskinner chair will be replaced by a 4 passenger high speed.
We know it’s difficult for anyone to think about anything else right now outside of easier and quicker access to Whistler Blackcomb mountain (get me up there now!!)… But for anyone thinking ahead to summer, part of the expansion and improvements includes upgrades to the bike park. This will involve a monumental addition of 21 km’s of biking terrain to Whistler Blackcomb’s already amazing mountain bike park.
Have Winter on the mind? Plunge into the wonder of Whistler winter activities! For you, we foresee lots of snow, fun, and hot cocoa cocoa…simply the perfect place for a holiday with family and friends. Here are some highlights…

With Whistler Blackcomb opening day set for Nov 24th there is much to celebrate! Come out and enjoy live music, food, and firepits with your friends and family at the base level.

This truly awesome festival runs Nov 29th to Dec 3rd and will bring to life epic and original adventures on film. So enjoy an early season treat! A great way to get inspired for the upcoming winter and support these amazing film makers.

Conference Direct says…
“I recently worked with Luxury Transport Inc. for my client’s 150 person conference in July, 2015 at the Westin Bayshore Hotel. Luxury Transport provided airport transfers to the majority of our guests and transportation for the entire group for three offsite events. We were extremely pleased with the quality of the staff and vehicles, their prompt attention to our questions and their ability to adapt quickly to our travel manifest changes. We received many compliments from attendees that appreciated the drivers’ friendliness and knowledge of the local Vancouver area which was shared during their airport transfers. I would recommend any organization coming to Vancouver and looking for high quality transportation services to work with Luxury Transport Inc.”
Whistler Congress Committee says…
“It is with heartfelt appreciation that the Whistler Congress Committee and all the members of Les Clefs d’Or Canada wish to say ‘Thank You’ for all your support, kindness and generosity in making the 10th National Les Clefs d’Or Congress the most successful to date. We are so proud to have had you as our industry partner…”
A recent Whistler client says…
“I was expecting basic service from Vancouver to Whistler, but got so much more! Our driver (Tej) was so accommodating and knowledgeable as he navigated us first to a grocery for utinsels so we could eat our picnic lunch, and then along the Sea to Sky Highway. Tej provided insight on the various places along the way, and also made recommendations on what to do and see in Whistler.”
A Tale of Two Cities no doubt! We’re here to help with planning for your trip to Whistler and Vancouver this 2015/2016 Season!
As we hit summer countdown into those longer late summer early fall days in Vancouver and Whistler, it’s our reminder that now is the time to start planning that Whistler trip to remember!
Take on Vancouver, take on Whistler, or split time between the two beautiful neighboring cities giving you two outrageously fun and beautiful destinations in one trip.
Both Whistler and Vancouver are well known for their breathtaking surrounding views and culinary expertise. While Whistler boasts a charming and atmospheric resort-style Village, Vancouver excites with endless landmarks, beautiful parks, and a bustling downtown core. While in Whistler, walk the boutique shops in the Village and take a ride up the Whistler Blackcomb Gondola and cross the impressive Peak 2 Peak Gondola, then take some time in Vancouver to take in the downtown culture of Gastown and Chinatown as well as a drive through Stanley Park, Vancouver’s coastal gem. Then take in some live entertainment and culinary delights at Granville Island Public Market.
Endless activities awaits you on your Whistler and Vancouver adventures!
The best food and drinks from around BC and beyond will be highlighted at the festival from November 5th through 15th, 2015.
These well planned events and galas will take you through a culinary journey to be remembered!
