Summer Experience Updates

Whistler events, getting around, parks, construction and more.

Week of September 25 to October 1, 2023


Whistler’s fire danger rating is currently rated as “High.” The fire ban remains in effect as we are still experiencing very dry forest conditions. No fires or residential campfires are allowed in Whistler at any level of fire danger rating including low and moderate. Details here.


Whistler is now on the fall schedule. Get the details on service changes.

To mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on Saturday, September 30, there will be free transit in Whistler.


Meadow Park Sports Centre
Facilities, except the pool area, have reopened at Meadow Park Sports Centre.

The pool (lap pool, kids pool, hot tub, steam room and sauna) is still closed for regular fall maintenance shutdown. Originally scheduled to re-open on Thursday, September 28, it will now be re-opening on Monday, October 2.

Thank you for your understanding as we strive to create a safer and more efficient place for our community to play.

Thank you for your patience with the construction noise, equipment, and disruption!
