The Whistler area, originally called Alta Lake, was sought out by a group of Vancouver businessmen in 1960. These men were looking for a site to develop in hopes of hosting the 1968 Winter Olympics. They were guided here, to London Mountain, known locally as Whistler Mountain due to the whistling marmots on its flanks. While their Olympic bid was unsuccessful, London Mountain was renamed to Whistler Mountain and the resort officially opened on February 15, 1966. The rest, as we say, is history.
In the present day, Whistler is a robust, award-winning resort that attracts visitors from all over the world. With an abundance of shopping, dining, and a wide range of community services, Whistler isn’t only an ideal place to visit, it’s where thousands have decided to live permanently. Located in the beautiful Coast Mountains, Whistler experiences a true four-season climate. Whistler’s average winter temperatures range from an average low of -8 to 3 degrees Celsius(18 to 37 Fahrenheit), while summer temperatures range from an average low of 9 to 23 degrees Celsius (48 to 80 F).
