Car: You can rent a car at the airport and it is a beautiful drive up here (3 hrs from the airport to Whistler; 2.25 hrs from downtown Vancouver to Whistler) We have complementary private heated underground parking at both Lake Placid Lodge and Greystone Lodge. Once you are here you may not need a car as nearly everything is within walking distance. However, there are some very nice sights within a 30-45 minute drive from here which would only be accessible by car. It should be noted that during January & February driving can be rather difficult as we live in the mountains.
Limo: We get a 10% discount on Limo service from Pacifica Limousine which we pass on to you. For $CDN 325 (including tax, tip and discount) a seven person stretch limo will pick you up at the airport/hotel and drive you right to your accommodation in Whistler. We arrange for your pickup and you pay the Limo driver directly. A credit card is required to reserve.This is a very civilized way to travel and a great way to start a vacation.
Van Service: Another way to travel between Vancouver International Airport/Vancouver Downtown and Whistler is provided by Whistler Star Express shuttle transportation, either a van, or mini bus. Normally, they depart within 60 minutes of pickup. The cost is $CDN 63/ person. The service operates from November 24, 2002 to April 30, 2003, with reservations available year round via their web site http://www.whistlerstarexpress.com.
Bus: A bus (operated by Perimeter 604-266-5386) departs the Vancouver airport every 2 hours for its direct route to Whistler. The cost is $CDN 58/person and it takes about 3 hours hrs to reach the Whistler Bus Loop. The bus stops and picks up at Lake Placid Lodge and Greystone Lodge.
