Creekside is only a short 5 minute drive south of Whistler Village. This quaint little village is actually the original Whistler and where the first gondola was built to head up Whistler mountain back to 1966. You could say its where the Whistler dream all started.
Although Whistler Village has now taken over as the hub, Creekside is still ideal for families or friends seeking a more peaceful escape. It has everything you need from restaurants, pubs, a liquor store, a grocery store and even a Starbucks and Tim Hortons. That said the hustle and bustle of the village is an easy $10 cab ride or $2.50 on the local BC Transit bus.
