10, 9, 8, 7…Where will you be when the clock strikes midnight?
Whistler truly knows how to do the holidays and New Year’s Eve is no exception. In fact, there may not be a better place to begin a new year than here! From spending it with family to dancing the night away to savoring delicious food or caressing your ears with live music, there are many events that take place all over the village and there is something for everyone. That combined with the great snow conditions and outdoor activities, is a guaranteed way to start 2017 off with a bang! Let Whistler Reservations help you navigate New Years in Whistler!
Whistler New Year’s Eve Celebration
New Years traditionally seems more like an adult event but here in Whistler, we want everyone to have fun! Whistler puts on family-friendly celebration that takes place across two separate venues. Each venue has a variety of activities to help ring in the New Year such as live entertainment, games, crafts, and early kid-friendly NYE countdowns!
Location: Mulitple Venues
Cost: Dec. 1-29 $12.50 per person and Dec. 30, 31 $15 per person
Time: 6pm-11pm at venues
Fire & Ice Show and Midnight Fireworks
New Year’s just isn’t New Year’s without fireworks! In true typical Whistler fashion, we like to go bigger- jumping through rings of fire bigger. Before you watch a spectacular fireworks display, take in a special Fire and Ice Show. This show consists of professional athletes flipping and twirling through a ring of fire, an awe-inspiring event for everyone!
Masquerade in the Mountains
Dance into the new year at one of Whistler’s hottest events. An evening of mystery and magic in the mountains awaits you. Don’t forget your masks!
New Years Eve Gala

Canadian Adventures Snowmobile Tour
Although many of these tours do not run until midnight, they are a memorable, exciting and an action-packed way to spend New Year’s Eve in the mountains. Choose from a magical and taste bud satisfying Fondue at Crystal Hut or cruise around the wilderness after dark and uncover a side of Whistler you may not have known. Either tour is a unique way to ring in the New Year.
Location: Whistler Mountain
Time: Tours start at 7:30pm for the Fondue and 8pm for the Night Tour
