Whistler Canada Tourist Information
It is easy to access either Whistler Mountain or Blackcomb Mountain from Whistler Village. Two gondolas run up the mountain directly from the Village. They are the Whistler Village Gondola and the Fitzsimmons Express. In addition, the Excalibur Gondola runs from Whistler Village up Blackcomb Mountain.
From Whistler's Upper Village (located at the foot of Blackcomb Mountain) skiers can catch either the Wizard Express or the Magic Chair up Blackcomb Mountain. The Peak-to-Peak Gondola shuttles skiers between the two mountains.
If you are travelling from Vancouver to Whistler for the day, you can park your vehicle at the Creekside parking lot and catch the Creekside Gondola up Whistler Mountain. The community of Creekside is located closer to Vancouver than Whistler Village. In addition, parking is normally more convenient.
