Destination Focus – Whistler BC

Destination Focus – Whistler BC

What a TRIP!  And I do mean that when talking about the stellar destination of Whistler, BC.   I had the great pleasure of visiting Whistler in October 2019, and even though it was in the shoulder season, I learned so much about this destination and all it has to offer meetings and conference planners and delegates.

Leanne’s Notables about Whistler BC:

  1. Travelling up to Whistler on the Sea to Sky Highway – an incredible way to see the West Coast, with scenic stops if you like in Squamish and at Shannon Falls.
  2. Four season destination – Whistler has really become a year-round playground for residents, visitors and families.
  3. The village – with all the shops, coffee joints and restaurants, even the non-skier can find tons of stuff to do while their family is up on the hill.
  4. Great options for Meetings!  There are so many great hotels and venues to choose from including:
    1. Whistler Conference Centre – boasting the largest ballroom in Whistler, as well as breakout spaces and a theatre
    2. Westin Whistler – fantastic location right now to chair lifts and easy access to The Village
    3. Fairmont Whistler – close to offsite venues including the Squamish Lil’Wat Cultural Centre
  5. So much to do!  Regardless of season or fitness level, there are TONS of things for you to do
    1. Love activity?  There’s skiing, biking, ziplining, 4x4ing, walking the village
    2. Love winter?  Skiing (of course) Christmas lights in the village
    3. Need some RnR?  Spa, shopping, coffee shops, a relaxing walk through the village or e-bike the path system
