Filming in Whistler
From making guest appearances on the iconic X-Files television series to getting its own namesake series in 2006, Whistler has enjoyed a great career in film and television.
With its spectacular Northwest mountain scenery, diverse exterior and interior locations and the resort’s proximity to Vancouver’s industry resources, Whistler is a location of first choice for many American and Canadian productions.
The municipality’s simple permitting structure, straightforward guidelines and helpful staff make filming in Whistler a positive experience for everyone. Over the past 20 years, Whistler has built an international name as a prime location for ski and snowboarding adventure films.
The expansive Whistler and Blackcomb mountain terrain, unique snow conditions and local talent make Whistler town an excellent choice for sports filmmaking. But it’s what happens when the mountain closes for the day that’s made Whistler popular with both scripted TV dramas and reality shows.
Whistler Village offers a variety of locations, from unique romantic restaurants to vibrant nightclubs, that can either establish a sense of place or add glamour to production. Whether a scene takes place above the forest canopy on a zip-line, on charming benches along Village Stroll or in a glass-bottomed gondola on the Peak2Peak, there’s no shortage of places to get dramatic in Whistler.
When it comes to filming in Whistler, the RMOW handles all requests pertaining to filming in public areas within Whistler Village and the adjacent municipality.
