Whistler2020 describes each of the five community priorities how Whistler will look in the year 2020. For more details link to the full Whistler 2020 document.
In the year 2020, the community is attractive and liveable with a strong social fabric, as the majority of the local workforce and many long-time members of the community make Whistler their home. Residents are able to access and enjoy Whistler's wide range of activities and amenities, the very reason they were drawn here. They mix with visitors in the Village and on the mountain, sharing in the resort vibrancy and cosmopolitan atmosphere.
In the year 2020, the resort experience continues to exceed expectations. From the moment visitors communicate with the resort about their trip until their return home, they are impressed by the seamless services provided by Whistler. New visitors, drawn by the resort community's unique and authentic sense of place, and diverse and continually renewed offerings, return for many more visits.
In 2020, Whistler residents continue to understand the importance of the natural environment to the success of the resort and to the health of current and future generations. Visitors adopt the stewardship ethic held by residents as they see it integrated into everything around them.
In 2020, tourism remains the primary economic driver of Whistler's ongoing success. To build and stabilize customer visits, the resort has successfully expanded into ventures that complement tourism and that move the resort community toward sustainability.
The spirit of cooperation and support among residents, business owners and other stakeholders flourishes in Whistler from years of working together and encouraging each other to achieve the shared vision.
