Can you believe it’s almost 2020? We can’t! Since it is such a momentous occasion, it only makes sense to celebrate in style… and in the mountains. Whistler is home to a great number of New Year’s Eve parties. But what really sets it apart, is the ability to ring in the New Year and then start it off with a bang by skiing, snowboarding, sightseeing, or participating in an exciting New Year’s Day event. To help you start the new decade off with a bang, here are a few suggestion for things to do on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day in Whistler.
