Cemetery and Tributes

Nestled among second growth forest at the base of Rainbow Mountain, the Whistler Cemetery is a sanctuary for peace and remembrance.

The cemetery is operated by the Resort Municipality of Whistler. It is located on Alta Lake Road, approximately 800 metres from Rainbow Park. 

Since 1996, the cemetery has provided for the burial of human bodies and human cremains. In 2003, Columbarium Walls, a Scattering Garden and more burial plots were added.
