Whistler is 120km (75 miles) north of Vancouver along the scenic “Sea to Sky Highway.” Prepared to be wowed on the 2 hour scenic journey past rushing waterfalls, emerald lakes, pristine old-growth forest and snow-capped mountain views.
Take Hwy #99 through the city onto the north shore. Once here, you will realize why it is called the Sea to Sky Highway. Enjoy the vistas as you travel to Whistler.
Before crossing into BC watch for the RIGHT turn off of I-5 connecting to Hwy #15 (Truck Crossing). This route is much less congested and takes you through Cloverdale to Highway #1 (not 1A). Turn west onto Hwy #1. This will take you onto the north shore and bypass downtown Vancouver. Watch for signs for Hwy #99 to Whistler.
At Whistler: Just one traffic light north of Whistler Village Gate Boulevard, turn LEFT off Highway #99 at the Lorimer Road traffic light. Continue past school, down the hill and turn RIGHT onto Balsam Way. Then first LEFT onto Easy Street. The fourth house on the LEFT is 6412 Easy Street. Guest entrance is on the LEFT side of the house, through the archway with B&B sign.
Check-in is at the Deer Lodge, 4314 Main Street, Whistler, with Whistler Reception Services
If Arriving by Car: Once in Whistler, make a RIGHT turn from Highway 99 at the main entrance to Whistler Village on Village Gate Boulevard. (traffic light/flags/resort sign). Proceed immediately to the left side of the street and at the first traffic light make a LEFT turn on Northlands Blvd. (you will see “Hy’s Steakhouse” to your left). Make the next RIGHT turn onto Main Street.
Take this road 500 feet (150 meters), past Delta Village Suites to the front parking area of Deer Lodge on the right hand side. There are four large flagpoles directly in front of the building. Park your car in front of Deer Lodge in the arriving visitors parking area. Please purchase a parking ticket for as little as 25 cents, however, you will not be ticketed if someone waits in the car while you briefly check-in at the front desk. Whistler Town Plaza consists of three separate buildings or lodges labeled Deer, Eagle, and Bear.
If Arriving by Bus: Ask the driver to bring you to Whistler Town Plaza , located next to the Delta Whistler Village Suites. We suggest Perimeter Bus Lines for those coming from Vancouver Airport – it’s comfortable and allows you to view the really awesome sights. Contact the front desk for tickets, rates and schedules.
