Whistler is consistently voted the No. 1 Ski resort in North America. We were the Official Mountain Host of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, and the resort is known as a world-class outdoor recreation Mecca and destination to the rich and famous. We hold more than a few world records. Whistler is also a vibrant and thriving community of friendly and outgoing people. It is entrepreneurs, top athletes, artists, musicians, students, seniors and families, who all once visited the resort, fell in love with the area – and never left. Whistler is a mixture of Family adventures, Athletics, Arts and Culture, evenings by the fire and having friends over for dinner – all with two of the very best mountains and all of Mother Nature’s glory in your back yard.
Whistler is a place that actually does have it all, from the opulent and metropolitan, to the quaint and unassuming. From a real estate standpoint, Whistler is a very unique marketplace. As a “Resort Municipality” we have many differences compared to a traditional residential community. We have different taxation, unique zoning and covenants, building schemes and rental restrictions. The best advice we have when considering Buying in Whistler is, do your research, ask the questions and hire qualified third parties for legal, accounting and building advice.
