Welcome to the year of the DO…so do Whistler and let’s make some memories!

They are saying that consumers are more focussed now more than ever on what they DO rather than what they HAVE.  We absolutely agree.

It’s becoming more about building on meaningful and memorable experiences rather than physical things.  Whistler oozes with opportunity for this.  With that said, here are some ideas to help you with your Whistler DO this year.

Winter Olympics 2018

Throw on your festive gear and head to the Village for a number of Olympic activities and events with live music, Olympic themed activities and Olympic Plaza broadcasts throughout the Winter Games.

Ice Kingdom Whistler

From now through March 31st, feast your eyes on the impressive 40,000 square feet of ice and snow sculptures inspired by the 300 year old Chinese tradition of gathering and creating beautiful sculptures out of ice and snow.  Whistler Golf Course is hosting and will feature ice slides for children, interactive sculptures and brilliant light displays.

WSSF

April 10th through 15th brings us the ever popular World Ski and Snowboard Festival!  This snow and ski festival, coming into it’s 23rd year, celebrates all things Whistler.  Ski races, big air competitions, live music and entertainment, and popular filmmaker showdown.  Excitement to the extreme and not to be missed!

So we invite you to come to Whistler to build on or begin building your experiences and memories.  DO Whistler with us!

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.

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.”

“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.”

Whistler for the Long Weekend!

Whistler for the Long Weekend

The long weekend is fast approaching.  What are your plans??

Whistler for the long weekend is the perfect plan!  Before the back-to-school life-in-the-fast-lane picks back up get up to Whistler to enjoy some late summer activities and beautiful views!

Riding the Sea to Sky Highway to Whistler is breathtaking in itself as you travel alongside those amazing ocean colours and backdrop mountains the whole way up.

Once in Whistler, TAKE IT UP a few notches with activities such as taking the gondola up for some Whistler Blackcomb mountaintop hiking and a memorable ride on the Peak 2 Peak Gondola, or hit the Mountain Bike Park for your adrenaline rush, or take a canoe or kayak down the winding River of Golden Dreams from Alta Lake to Green Lake.  Still have time to spare in your day?  Go for a tree top adventure, zip-lining, or ATVing to fill those adventure gaps.

Or, TAKE IT DOWN a few notches by enjoying a leisurely bike ride or walk along the Whistler’s extensive and peaceful Valley Trail for a picnic at one of Whistler’s amazing lakes, beaches or parks. If you’re looking for some serious down-time, be sure to visit the Scandinave Spa, or book a tee time at one of Whistler’s impressive golf courses, or grab your rod and drop a line for a quiet afternoon of fishing.
Wanting to continue on that relaxation train?  Enjoy a walk through the boutique shops in Whistler Village and stop into one of Whistler’s many award winning restaurants for drinks and delectable eats.

It’s your time to be inspired.  Head to Whistler this long weekend and plan your perfect itinerary.
