Whistler is a town north of Vancouver, British Columbia in the Coast Mountains of Canada. The closest major city is Vancouver, BC which is approximately two hours by road along the scenic Highway 99, also known as the Sea to Sky Highway.

Given the distance, transportation for the 2023 Summer Meeting requires more attention than normal.

Passports Required

In addition to transportation, all non-Canadian residents must have a valid passport to enter Canada. Please check your passport to verify the expiration date as many have not traveled out of the country since COVID-19.

The current wait time in the United States for regular passport processing is 10-13 weeks with expedited processing taking 7-9 weeks. If you need a new passport, do it now, don’t delay.

Visit www.travel.state.gov for more information.

Airport Access

The closest major airport is Vancouver International (YVR), approximately 2.5 hours driving distance to Whistler.

Whistler is also within 5 hours drive time of Seattle-Tacoma (SEA) and 3 hours of Bellingham International Airport (BLI) in Washington, USA. We do recommend flying directly into Vancouver to avoid border issues with rental cars and other forms of transportation.

Transportation from Major Airports

Once you are on the ground, there are two major ways to get to Whistler – by road (rental car or shuttle) and by air (helicopter or floatplane only).
