Travelling to Whistler

​By Car:

From Vancouver, take the Sea to Sky Highway 99. Drive through Squamish and follow signs for Whistler Village.
*please note that Vancouver and the Sea to Sky Highway are very busy thoroughfares. Traffic heading to Whistler on a Friday evening will be significant, and drive times can double. Please plan accordingly and attempt to arrive Thursday or earlier if at all possible.* 

​By Air:

Vancouver International Airport is the closest major airport. You can rent a car or take a shuttle bus to Whistler (2-2.5 hours). Harbour Air also flies from Downtown Vancouver to Whistler.
