Whistler Village

About This Point Of Interest

Whistler Village

Whistler Village is at the heart of the Town of Whistler, and is as world-class as any other mountain resort town. Officially opening as a destination ski resort in 1966, the village has bloomed into an ever-thriving international bucket list item. With dozens of restaurants, shops and hotels, the village in the winter is always of note in ski and snowboard magazines. For summer enthusiasts, Whistler Village is often considered the birthplace of modern, lift-accessed mountain biking, drawing riders from across the world.
Nestled at the base of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, this pedestrian-style, alpine village hosted several events during the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games, including alpine skiing, sliding events, and even nordic skiing events at nearby Callaghan Valley.
