The Village

The Village

 

The Whistler Village makes Whistler special.  Its like no other village in North America or the world.


Think of Whistler Village as your home away from home, with added mountains. A stroll along the stone walkways will reveal all the creature comforts you need (plus a few luxuries you really want). And when it's time to escape, the great outdoors is just steps away.

 

Where is the Village?

The Village is the central neighborhood of the town of Whistler, located at the base of both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. It is divided into several areas - the Village, Village North and Upper Village. All the areas are connected by the paved, pedestrian-only Village Stroll.

 

Whistler Village is where locals and visitors mingle throughout the year, coming and going from outdoor adventures. There are people shopping and renting skis and bikes, kids exploring the playgrounds and plenty of people-watching opportunities from sunny patios and restaurants.  Depending on the season, you can catch events like free open air concerts, street entertainment and markets.


What's so special about the Village? There's always something to see and do and the sights and sounds change with the seasons making every visit new and exciting. But most of all there's a special energy that only people in a beautiful place having a wonderful time can create, and you can feel it every time you walk the Stroll. The smiles say it all.
