Whistler is one of the most sought-after travel destinations and we couldn’t more excited that you decided to come to visit for the first time! Now that you’ve settled on a date, booked airfare and travel, the fun part of planning can begin. The part where you get to start day-dreaming about endless snow, après, and filling yourself with poutine and Beaver Tails. We might be getting ahead of ourselves so here is some advice from the experts for the first time Whistler traveler.
Book Your Accommodation Ahead Of Time
Lock in the lowest price for your accommodation by booking it ahead of time. For winter, this can mean booking it in the fall and for summer, booking it in the late winter or early spring. Rest assured that with Whistler Reservations, you’ll have the lowest price guaranteed.
Book Your Activities Ahead Of Time
What’s not as well known, is the need to book your activities prior to arrival. Some of the Whistler activities are so popular such as dog sledding, that they sell out months in advance. What’s more, bundling your activities with accommodation can save you even more money than purchasing separately.
Buy Your Lift Tickets Ahead Of Time
Skip the lift line by pre-purchasing your lift tickets online. You can add more days if need be but there are savings to be had by buying in quantity as well as by buying early.
Whistler is in the mountains, and consequently, the weather can change on a dime. By bringing layers, you’ll be able to continue your activities without being interrupted by shivering uncontrollably or sweating buckets. Simply, add or remove a layer and carry on!
We can’t stress this enough. Bring proper footwear. Walking is a great way to take in the sights and if your feet are aching, you might miss out. Additionally, many of the exciting things to do in Whistler are physical and on the mountain, making adequate shoes an essential part of your attire.
Plan For A Day Off
Whistler is built on adrenaline and fun. Sustaining that level of intensity for a week or two weeks will have any first-time traveler looking elsewhere for their next vacation. Plan to take a day off from the mad rush to slow down and enjoy being in the mountains. The Scandinave Spa or shopping in the village are wonderful slower paced activities.
