Message from Whistler Mayor Jack Crompton to visitors
Whistler is known as a welcoming place. Our community exists to welcome visitors and we love sharing the Village, mountains and nature with you.
During these challenging times however, I have an important request. Please do not come to Whistler. On March 21, I asked visitors to stay home and I want to re-emphasize that now is not the time to travel to Whistler.
Our focus right now is on the health and safety of our community, especially our healthcare workers and other essential workers including those in our grocery stores, food services and pharmacies.
We have closed parks, playgrounds, tennis courts and basketball courts until further notice. Our municipality is only providing essential services right now and all of our non-essential facilities have been closed.
We’ve asked our community to take social distancing recommendations from public health officials very seriously. This means telling residents to only leave their home for essential trips, avoiding gatherings and staying at least two metres (six feet) away from others when you do go out.
Now is not the time to come to Whistler. Now is not the time to travel outside your own community. Please stay home and take care of yourself and your family.
When we are able, we look forward to welcoming you back again with wide-open arms.
