Who is allowed to travel to Whistler?

Everybody living in Canada is welcome to visit Whistler, as well as Americans who are eligible to cross the border based on vaccination status.

What’s open in Whistler? What is there to do?

Most of Whistler’s businesses and attractions are open, and (as always) there is plenty to do. Indoor and outdoor dining is allowed for groups of any size, and Whistler offers plenty of patios for your enjoyment. Shops in the Village are open, as well as attractions such as Olympic Plaza and the Whistler Farmers’ Market (Sundays 11am-4pm at the Whistler Racket Club).

PEAK 2 PEAK sightseeing and the Whistler Mountain Bike Park are now OPEN for the season. Visit the Whistler Blackcomb website for detailed information about summer operations.

Outside of the village, you can walk, hike, bike, float, and enjoy the scenic network of trails and lakes that surrounds Whistler. Golf courses are open. The Whistler skatepark, BMX park and pump track are open. Experiences are available from local tour operators including Canadian Wilderness Adventures, The Adventure Group, and Ziptrek Ecotours.

To our knowledge, all major attractions in Whistler are open for business, but please check the websites of any business/attraction you hope to visit for up-to-date information.

As always, you are welcome to contact us to have your questions answered by our knowledgeable Front Desk team 🙂
