There is a lot to be said about putting your phone down and enjoying what's happening around you, especially when you are surrounded by the beauty of the mountains. But then there is the case for your phone having the ability to enhance your Whistler experience. Taking pictures, using a map and even finding out which restaurant you're going to go to for dinner can all be done the swipe of your finger. Whistler wants you to create lasting memories and has created a number of initiatives to make sure that your most powerful tool is ready for anything, anytime. Here's how your phone and Whistler can work together to make the best trip yet.
We all know that dreaded moment when you are trying to take a picture or video of a once in a lifetime moment and your phone dies. Well, we don't want that happening while you're experiencing your first Zipline, riding your first drop in the Bike Park or skiing some of the best powder ever. Charging stations can be found all over the Whistler and Blackcomb Mountain so you can keep your battery life up.
They are located at:
Glacier Creek Lodge
Many of the hotels and retail outlets also have a place to charge your phone or a cord you can borrow. If you find yourself on the low-end battery life, just pop in and ask!
There are a few apps that can work with you to make your Whistler experience easier.
You will find real-time mountain information including lift status, trail conditions, weather, maps, webcams and more.
Only settle for the best by reading through millions of user reviews on everything from accommodation to food.

North American tipping can be a tricky one to figure out. Don't even worry about it with this handy app that will do the math for you.
It's a given that you're going to be adventuring while on vacation in Whistler but this doesn't mean your phone has to find itself dropped in water, lost in the snow or cascading down a cliff. Luckily, there are a number of phone cases on the market that are made for people engaging in activities that their phone might not want to and there are Whistler retailers that carry them. Try an Otterbox or a Hit Case.
It happens. You get caught up in the moment and your phone gets left behind. If this experience befalls you, don't worry. Try to find another phone to call yours with and stop by Guest Services at the base of Whistler Mountain. They will file a Lost And Found Report. Unless your phone is in a cave or with a bear, there is a likely chance that someone will find it and turn it in.
Your phone can help you create lasting memories, explore and make the most out of your trip. Ready to use it in action? Book your Whistler vacation today with Whistler Reservations.
