Car / Truck / Motorcycle
The only road into and out of Whistler is Highway 99, also known as the Sea-to-Sky Highway.
Renowned for its exceptional scenery, the two-hour drive from Vancouver to Whistler winds past waterfalls, snow-capped mountains, rivers and ocean. Highway 99 continues north past Whistler towards Pemberton, Lillooet and into the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region.
Several free, municipal day-parking lots are located a short distance from the ski lifts and shops of Whistler Village and the Creekside neighborhood.
Car rentals are available in Whistler Village, as well as many Vancouver locations.
Travelling in Winter
Highway 99 is well maintained but snow storms and icy conditions can be experienced. Proper winter tires are mandatory; roadside checks occur during winter and cars without proper tires will be turned around at these checkpoints.
Travellers along Highway 99 should be aware that temporary road closures sometimes occur during extreme winter conditions; please take this into account and remember that driving in winter conditions can be a challenge, even for experienced drivers.
