Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Whistler along with the rest of Canada. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Canada has restricted the entry of all foreign nationals. Travellers who are not Canadian citizens, permanent residents or people registered under the Indian Act may only enter Canada for essential purposes. Entrance will be denied to people travelling for tourism, sightseeing, recreation, entertainment, social visits or religious functions. Canadian citizens, permanent residents, their immediate family members, diplomats, airline crews, and travellers arriving from the United States who are travelling for non-discretionary or non-optional purposes may still enter Canada. Seasonal agricultural workers, fish/seafood workers, caregivers, temporary foreign workers, international students with valid study permits or approvals for study permits valid from at least 18 March 2020, and permanent resident applicants who received approval before 18 March 2020 who had not yet travelled to Canada, may still enter the country. Other people with special dispensation to enter Canada include French citizens who reside in Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon, people registered under the Indian Act, visa-exempt refugees and their immediate families, and those with special authorisation from the Canadian government. Travellers who exhibit symptoms will be prohibited from boarding planes that are destined for Canada. If they exhibit symptoms on arrival they will be referred to the Canadian Public Health Agency. Travellers who have been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to medical reasons related to COVID-19 may not enter the country. Travellers must self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival at their final destination in Canada. Travellers who disembarked from a cruise ship with a known COVID-19 outbreak like the ‘Diamond Princess’ will be required to remain in quarantine for 14 days at a location determined by the Chief Public Health Officer.. If you are looking to book a trip to Whistler and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about travelling during COVID-19.
As the bend in the road curves sharply, the coach starts to slow down and the loud voices of skiers and snow boarders debating over which sport is ‘cooler’ suddenly go quiet. Heads turn to look outside at the most spectacular view: giant towering cedars draped in a blanket of white snow with frozen lakes beside them forming a path to the fairy tale village of Whistler.
Located just 77 miles from Vancouver, the resort town of Whistler has become one of the most popular ski resorts in the world – and with good reason. Not only is it the venue for the 2010 Winter Olympics, which has added to its global recognition, but it caters to everyone from novice to professional skiers and even non-skiers. Both mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb, offer a varied terrain suitable for every ability. But that’s not the only reason millions visit the resort each year. The pedestrianised Whistler Village has lots to keep everyone, including young children and teenagers, entertained with its shops, cinemas, gourmet restaurants and lively après ski.
Flights to Whistler arrive at Vancouver Airport, from here Whistler is a two-hour drive or coach ride along the famous Sea-to-Sky highway.
Flights to Vancouver Intl Airport have seen a 82% decrease in demand compared to the previous year.
Skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts book Whistler flights in mid-December, and the mountain’s peak season peak is January and February. Summer, from May to August, is also a popular time for outdoor activities including mountain biking.
Shoulder season tends to be from September to November when there are fewer crowds.
