Whistler appears regularly in commercials promoting everything from luxury cars to energy drinks. Whistler was also showcased in print ads for Suburu and in the pages of Eddie Bauer catalogues.
With filming being part of the local economy for the past two decades, Whistler residents are comfortable with film crews and respectful of the shooting process. At the Resort Municipality of Whistler we are committed to making sure everyone benefits when a production chooses Whistler.
