Nestled among second growth forest at the base of Rainbow Mountain, the Whistler Cemetery is a sanctuary for peace and remembrance.
The RMOW is currently developing a Whistler Cemetery Master Plan. To help us anticipate future need, internment and memorialization preferences, we are seeking input from the community.
Feedback will help shape the Master Plan. Please share your input here.
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.
Full Burial Plots
Full burial plots flank the cemetery and are surrounded by natural forest.
Cremation Burial Plots
Two rows of cremation burial plots are located at the west side of the cemetery.
Six columbaria are located on the west side of the cemetery along a gravel path.
The Scattering Garden is accessible by a footpath through the serenity of natural forest.
Tribute plaques are located on benches and bikes in parks or trails throughout Whistler.
Hours of Service for Interments and Burials
Interments and burials are conducted between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday to Friday. Interments and burials scheduled outside of the prescribed cemetery hours are subject to fees set out in the Whistler Cemetery Fee schedule.
