GETTING TO WHISTLER
To get to Whistler, BC, you must arrive at the Vancouver International Airport. Their website at: http://www.yvr.ca/en/Default.aspx, provides all of the information you will need to make arrangements for either car rental, bus transportation, or limousine
Travelling from the Vancouver International Airport should take approximately 2 hours by car, dependent on weather and traffic. The drive from the Airport, through downtown Vancouver and then onto the Sea to Sky highway is not difficult. You essentially follow Highway 99 north. Car rental companies can provide the directions, however, the office has driving directions with a few added notes for anyone wanting to request those. When you arrive in Whistler, follow the signs to Whistler Village. Turn right onto “Village Gate Blvd”. The first right should be “Whistler Way”. Stay to your right and follow that road past the Convention Centre and then onto the Hilton Whistler Resort and Spa. The Whistler Tourism website also provides detailed driving directions with things to watch for and specific details. Go to: http://www.whistler.com/directions/
Train service is also available for those that want to take a scenic route: Go to http://www.whistler.com/train/for more information on
schedules, fares and booking information.
