Whistler Village is made up of the Village Center, Village North, and Upper Village, all connected by the Village Stroll. Dining, lodging, shopping, and entertainment options abound throughout the village. To access Whistler Mountain, head to Skier’s Plaza in the Village Center. Blackcomb Mountain is accessed from the Upper Village. Don’t miss Whistler Olympic Plaza, where Olympic rings and mementos from the 2010 games still stand. In the winter, the plaza transforms into an ice-skating rink, and in summer it plays host to a free outdoor concert series.
For those not staying in the area, Whistler Village can be visited on a full-day tour from Vancouver, many of which stop at other attractions in the area, such as Shannon Falls. Depending on the season, activities such as ziplining, snowmobiling, or ATV riding can also be included. Or join a progressive tasting tour, where you can try dishes at a number of different Whistler restaurants.
