Why Whistler

For decades, visitors have come here to immerse themselves in a stunning mountain landscape, explore our pedestrian-only village, and experience an incredible diversity of bucket-list-worthy activities. Here, your group can ski some of the finest terrain in North America, pedal bikes on paved trails lined with old-growth forests, spend a sunny afternoon on the links, or just soak up our down-to-earth vibe.

Both event planners and attendees will love that our modern meeting and conference facilities are situated within Whistler’s inviting village, and are designed to take advantage of abundant natural light, while offering easy access to the great outdoors. And thanks to the convenience of Whistler’s walkability, transportation logistics are thing of the past: Festivals, spas, shops, restaurants, and bars are all just a short walk from hotel rooms.
