Just a short 10-minute walk from the bustling main Whistler Village lies the more secluded and often less busy Whistler Upper Village. Located at the base of Blackcomb Mountain, the quaint Upper Village offers amenities such as hotels, restaurants and shopping as well as easy access to the new Blackcomb Gondola, trails and more.
We definitely recommend spending some time exploring the Whistler Upper Village on your next trip to Whistler!
