More About Whistler, BC

Overview

At the base of the mountains, you'll find Whistler Village, a charming pedestrian-only area filled with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The village is broken up into three areas, Village North, the main hub of the village and where the Olympic Plaza is located. Village Center is closest to Whistler Mountain and Upper Village has the closest access to Blackcomb Mountain. Combined the mountains offer over 200 trails, welcoming snow lovers of all skill levels. While skiing and snowboarding may be the most popular snow sports, Whistler offers numerous other snow sports, like tubing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and even dog sledding. If you find yourself up here during the summer months don't worry, there's still so much to do. Snow trails turn into hiking and biking trails, fishing and white water rafting are also available.

There may be additional requirements for international travel, such as inoculations or visas, and some countries require that passports be valid for six months or longer beyond your stay in the country. Entry requirements for non-U.S. citizens might be different, and visitors are encouraged to verify the documentation/visa requirements with the nearest consulate or embassy. Rules are subject to change at any time, without notice. For the most current information, please visit the website of the U.S. Department of State at www.travel.state.gov.

Newlywed Information: Tickets and other travel documents must exactly match your current passport and other identification. If not, you could be denied boarding and no refund will be forthcoming. For requirements and information regarding marriages performed in a foreign country, please visit the consulate of the particular country.

General Safety Tips: By taking a few simple security precautions before and during your vacation you can help ensure that you, your traveling companions, and your valuables are as safe and secure as possible.
  • To make it easier to replace your passport if it’s lost or stolen, in addition to your passport, take a photocopy of your passport information page (keeping it separate from your actual passport).
  • Carry only a limited amount of cash, just enough for gratuities and incidental purchases. Major credit cards are widely accepted and can be replaced if lost or stolen.
  • Always lock your hotel room door (including patio and balcony door on any level of the building) and use the peephole before opening the door.
  • Store your valuables (such as cash, credit cards and airline tickets) in the hotel’s in-room safe or front desk safety deposit box.
  • If you must carry valuables on your person, do so in a pouch or money belt concealed under your clothing. Purses and backpacks can be easy targets for thieves.
  • For complete and current safety and security information, including travelers' tips, public announcements, travel advisories and more, please visit the website of the U.S. Department of State at www.travel.state.gov.
